Bitter Reality

Poetry By: Blackmirror

Okay, so it doesn't rhyme as much as the other poems, but I think it's fine. Hope you do too. :)

Bitter Reality, by M-chan

Screaming, silent, with bitter tears,

This is all my worst of fears.

You don't hear me,

No one does.

Past this aching masquerade,

You can't see.

This fortress I've built, so grandiose

In its glory,

Hides a bitter story.

It's something I've never thought

Anyone should care to know.

But you, you're the one

I want to look this way.

I struggle to find

The right words to say.

Only acrimonious silence,

Of the sharpest kind,

Is there to find.

Now I'm tired of these

Hurtful games.

They've left me,

And maybe you,

Lame, broken, shattered.

So I'll crawl away,

From the burning light

Of a new dawn.

It only leaves the taste

Of acid in my mouth.

I'll return to my palace

Of sweet solitude.

No one will disturb me,

In this ever harsh


You run back to loving,

Waiting arms.

It's a place I could never go,

So I'll remain

In my spiteful silence.

Wishing, only, for

A long awaited look,

From your direction.
