  • Pitiful Mockery

    He hurled his contemptuous insult

    With regards to nothing.

    She played and danced with the tune

    and they both roared in laughter.

    They smoked the house with thicker

    mockery and burned it down to the ground...

    While the pitiful subject knelt down in shame

    for there’s no longer skin left to bare.

    ....with the noose around his neck...

    There he stood in silence...

    Awaiting for the time...

    Scorching! You don't hold back imrogue. I'm amazed that you can handle cruelty so beautifully. May it be voice to all in need.

      Thank you for your kind words. I am so humbled to receive such comment from you... for I am not sure of what I'm doing most of the time as far as writing poems... let alone posting it for the pros to see... 😁.
      I need mentor/s 😊... Again, thank you very much!

        We ALL need mentors - and if anyone tells you he/she doesn't - then RUN! I don't consider myself a pro because I've never been formally schooled on poetry. Then again, the most profound thought comes out of the mouth of babes - so maybe I'll just celebrate my innocence and keep on learning - because I have opportunity for that every single day.

      You certainly look like you know what you are doing. I read it three times.

      Very touching and poetic imrogue. Food for thought.
      Cruel indifference slices off pieces of the heart. Can it ever grow back?
      Thanks for sharing

        When cruelty hits the heart so deep, the thicker the scar! Thanks for reading and for your comment! 😊
