Her illusions

I do not have illusions of being great

or the best at what I do.

I could not care less of others rise

but what I care about is how

some people use others to get to the top

cling-on to the kings and queens

and pretend they got their on their own merit

when their words suck

they do not understand even the meaning

of a poem.

Yes, I mean you, who follow me

and refuse to unfollow me

because you know your poetry book

is so awful, I gave it away to the poor.

I was being nice but it was

so pathetic

not even I could admit otherwise.

I hope you get it straight this time, girl.

I hope you give up

the dream

of being something

you knew deep inside

all along

you could never do

and keep the words to  yourself

tucked in some drawer

where no one can read them.

Do us all a favor.

 

sorry but I can’t be nice any longer

when you claim

to be the best

and take videos

of yourself

as if you were Kim

I am pretty sick

of it all.

 

read some dead poets

to get it through your ugly head

that you know nothing

about poetry

and keep on trying hard

to be someone

 

else.

    Bad writing is big pet peeve of mine, too, Chrissy. I like that you hold nothing back, you’re brutally honest.:)

    Thank you for following my blog. But remind me not to ever anger you. Tears were growing in back of my eyes reading this poem. To come upon it cold really hits you in the gut.

      you’re welcome, thank you so much for your heartfelt comment, I never thought my poems would have any effect on people except to want to laugh at them, but I see the world differently the last little while, my pleasure to read you.
