"Don't swear."
You cheated on life,
cheated on me,
and all you see
is the hurtful words
I say to you.
I raise my voice;
do you know why?
Do you comprehend?
My pain,
the titanic is sinking,
someone please save me,
but you can't.
I swear,
to get across to you.
Should I open my legs
and share with the world;
do what you do best?
Should I release myself from the
awful world you've enveloped me in?
I swear,
I say all the words
that make a point to you,
that make you stop and think
she's angry, and this time
it's for real.
I deal low blows,
I hit where it hurts
so you won't ever forget it.
Remember me,
the next time
when you think about fucking her,
think about fucking me over
and over
metaphysically.
You've screwed me
all of my life
into a hell.
Oh well,
this is my ode to you,
my way to say
Fuck You.
I'll use the words
I goddamn want to use.
Don't fret over some simple words,
some childish curses,
cuz' they ARE just words,
not what I've done,
not the actions
that make up
my dreadful
life.
