don’t pity me

don’t pity me                            June 19, 2016
some men take 20 years
to show they’re just like all the other rapists
and some take 20 minutes
to get their drippy cocks erect
but you
took 20 days
to take my heart
20 days to have it
and 20 days to break it
but i
am a free woman
and tonight
the moon is full
and the gates of heaven
are wide open.
for what do i need a human heart
when god’s eye is in the sky
shining the light of truth
in my soul?
for god knows
the rapists, the impotent, the heartbreakers
i don’t pity you
for your poverty, your orphanhood, your life.
i pity you
for your need
to break me.

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
