People try to communicate with me

I turn away to be free

I do not want to hear their words

Or lies

Only want to hear the words


I am so full of hate and rage

I could spit on this poetry page

Hate is such a powerful word

But I use it when I need to be heard

Do not talk to me

Or look at me

Do not breath the same air as me

Continued presence will only cause further animosity

I need you out my face

No where near my personal space

Stop ringing my phones

Leave me alone

Do not knock at my door

Enraging me to my inner core

I do not want to be bothered

I can’t take this invasion

And I am ’bout ready to put foot up your behind

This is it …

No more taking up my time!
