THE BULLY

TommyD 1957 (Ft. Lee)



THE BULLY

Your spits on my face , as I fall to the ground
You're big and you're bad , when there's no one around

You do want you want , as I do as you say
Hate comes from your soul , in the most vile way

Your torment and grief , has laid many to waste
As the blood from their body , in their mouths they do taste

My mind makes me sick , when I think about you
As I lock all my doors , and my food I can't chew

The fear that you leave , is the most eerie kind
As the thoughts that I have , will not now leave my mind

I Pray that my God , takes me now from this place
As I vomit and scream , and I try to embrace ...

That the life that I lead , will now soon disappear
And the hope that I have , will relinquish this fear

That I will find peace , in the hope that will thrive
When you are a nightmare , no longer alive

    Very well Sir, This is the right way to lighten the load from heart. My teacher once said that a poetry comes out when one is suffering heavy load on his heart. Any way . Thanks. Keep writing.
