LET LOOSE

You play the victim,
but all I see is an abusive coward,
that murdered my mind and got caught.
Words leave your mouth
(that I used to kiss with such a hunger),
and they evoke anger,
because they taste
of a deliberately provoked jealousy in me.
I answer you
in a series of questions,
that leave my heart aching
(and I instantly regret asking),
so I scream,
in order to drown out answers
that you probably won’t dare to even whisper.
You told me,
that she reminded you of me,
but honey,
every man is a spitting image of you,
I just never gave them the pleasure.
Loyalty is measured
by the ever-growing thickness of the rope
that ties us to each other…
and baby,
I’m cutting you loose.

  1. Love the build up to the “cutting loose” lines:

    “Loyalty is measured
    by the ever-growing thickness of the rope
    that ties us to each other…
    and baby,
    I’m cutting you loose.”

    Awesome!

  2. Yeah Yeah Yeah and Yeah!!!

    I’m blown away by your power, Ms Owl!! LET LOOSE is prose right up my alley; simple, straightforward and dripping with venom. Not one bit of emotion was lost in your words. Unreal!

  3. poem after poem, you weave a compelling, beautiful tapestry … alive with voices, alive with pleasure, alive with suffering and resolve. exquisite x tony

  4. Busted! Thanks for liking my latest. Liked this poem enough to follow this blog but it will take a while before reading your work in more detail. So, for now, greetings and best wishes from a fellow poet and blogger.

  5. slam dunk woah – loved this and the 5 line close – a viper heading for its prey.
    You told me, that she reminded you of me….. wrong words my boy…
    zapped in the right places Ms. Owl – well done.
