"Burning Splinters"

Poetry By: RaisinGirl
Young adult

simply any pure evil that another person could or would inflict upon a loved one...in my mind, whatever it may be...I was thinking of a friend, and the hurt she is being put through....all of this is purely figurative, not real...I'm just angry, and defensive, and a bit protective...I felt compelled to write with intense imagery.

You throw a punch,

I catch a splinter,

trapped within,

this empty winter,

make me cry,

and wish for death,

a bloody bath,

of crystal meth,

flailing arms,

and floating bones,

a river soaked,

with seven loans,

you take and take,

I gave an inch,

but I choked,

by your lynch,

burned me up,

with volcanic pumice,

pouring lava,

over my existence,

fire and ice,

look me straight,

in the black eyes,

a burdensome weight,

locked up within,

the colder air,

breathing under,

the water's lair,

I'd rather burn,

than drown in here,

so pick your weapon,

choose wisely, dear...
