Compassion you've twisted into contempt.
Each kindness I give is met with malice.
Never again will I make the attempt.
Your own bitterness will fill this chalice.

No day goes by without some argument.
Each day with you provides me with fresh scars.
You've torn my soul's tender integument.
Sorrow's end has been wished on many stars.

My passion's fire has flickered and died.
All that's left are ashes and icy coals.
The flame's extinguished by the tears I cried.
Your spite holds me back from reaching my goals.

You prove my hatred of women is just.
Lord knows you do nothing to prove it wrong.
You can no longer inspire my lust.
In my arms and heart you no longer belong.

Dream: "You prove my hatred of women is just."

Not so...that's prejudiced but I'm sorry that someone of the same gender can cause such emotions..

HUGS

Eeek again sir, I fear that one day you'll get so bad that my monitor will suffer the brunt and go up in flames!
Palpable feeling of bitterness!

I don't know about sweet but it's very good and short.

If this is sweet, remind me never to ask you to pass the sugar. Good poem, Dream.

Such a bitter poem......hope you don't hate me too for belonging to the female race?

Sounds like quite a bit of hurt going on here. Hurt can bring bitterness......so sorry for your pain but you expressed it well.

Sister of my heart, pain is life, life is short, I will endure.

RainbowGirl, 'tis not just one occurence with one woman that has embittered me.

Christopher and Revered Elder, I have but sipped from the well of bitterness within me.

Kelly, thank you but compared to what I deleted, this is hearts and flowers.

Sys, absolutely not!

Shar, though I can write any emotion, bitterness and spite flow as well as the Darkness does.

Dream: It isn't people that cause us to be bitter but how we view their actions ..:-))

HUGS...ooops..(are they allowed?..*g*)

If someone causes so much pain, step away. If you continue to allow someone like this in your life, you perpetuate the pain inflicted on you. Your pain and bitterness show in this excellent poem.

Deeply painful and bitter my friend..your talent is phenomenal, and you must realize that..I only wish that somehow you'll find more happiness than you seem to have right now.

I'm glad you have an outlet, cause I wouldn't want to be your internal organs!!! A well wrought, passionate piece dear Dream.
