Another extremely experimental piece where i have thrown metre out the window and just gone with the metaphorical flow.


Dear Self

You’re ugly and you’re flawed
Just like your endless miserable bleatings
And those endless miserable meetings
With your faults and your mistakes
And you mindless little [   ] takes
You’re stuck on a cycle you picked yourself
And you’re stuck on the discount shelf
Of a saw dust floored supermarket
That spits in your face and laughs at your hair
And looks at your reflection and its well practiced flair
You’re broken and you’re worthless
Just like those meaningless moans and philosophies
And those sickening full stops and apostrophes
That dash across the page in a pattern of futile longing
Why would anyone want you when you don’t even want yourself?
And so you’ll bathe in a bath of your petty tears and pretty little thoughts
And the would haves and should haves that spew from your mind
You’ll crack open your skull and you’ll laugh at the emptiness you find
You’re pathetic and you’re deserving
Of the crap that you tread through with your dismal complaining
With your pathetic poetry that leaks lies and falsity and treason
Lined up in a row to be shot down and dissected to search for the reason
For the hollow hole that inhabits your chest and swallows your head
And you’re fed up of crying so you’ll laugh cruelly instead
You’re ugly and you’re flawed
Just like your endless miserable bleatings
And those endless miserable meetings
With a person who you know you’re just dying to change
And who throws it straight back in your face and spits
“You picked this.”
