Spitting Poison

Spitting Poison

Slight lips seethe rancid spittle

Spewing forth toxicity

Into my peaceful atmosphere

And I squirm to move away from her

As we piss away the hours

I think of art and poetry

I think of all the damage done to me

As I listen to her rage

On a solitary page of pain

And it’s driving me insane to stay

It’s nearly three a.m.

And she’s reeled me in again

With that rusty hook of pity

She’d been dropping in her line

And I’m the sap who took the time

To listen to her whine

I try to hang the line

She screams a bit more time

I lie and say it’s fine

It never is
