Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 28th of October.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 28th of October.

Burn me
With your fiery gaze
Lash me
With your tongue
It can strip
The skin from my flesh
Powder my bones
Without even trying
There is no escape
The dispassion
In every word you say
Nothing
Can effect a change
No matter how
Well I perform
Scorn
Rains down
With little respite
For breathing
It remains a mystery
How discriminatory
The attack
When praise
Drips from your
Lips
Like honeydew
For other people
Whatever they do
Call me
Take my name
In vain
Let me see the truth of you
When it is so long
Since you were even here
How can it be true
I carry the voice
Within me
Even though
An unwelcome guest
It has long made
My house
Its home.
