A Fool Was I

A Fool Was I

written by: Anne G



A fool was I

to question why

reply denied

unmasked – the lie

I choked then cried


with shame

a mortal wound

I died a little bit

that day

the words you spewed

cut to the quick

I flinched and bristled

with regret

loathing  filled

my every pore

I gathered up

my injured pride

denouncing you

denouncing love

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
