Green

Breathe in, breathe out
you’ll be okay
Keep walking forward
 
There is not much to say
It couldn’t have been
any more awkward
 
Yes, I am young
Inexperienced in love
and still quite green
 
But who could have known?
that he was a man with a wife
and she caused a terrible scene 
 
She called me names
that I know I am not
while he stood there silent
 
Speechless and hurt
I was very afraid
she would get violent
 
He did nothing to help
Letting me take her barrage
He was the one to blame
 
I left in tears, my heart broken
He, a liar, a cheat, a seducer
Yet I am the one bearing shame

Game On

Just a game to you

You played because you could

Your unfiltered words and actions

a green light to those who contained

their hatred

No thought or dedication

or ability to multitask

Let alone read

Communication skills nonexistent

Your statistics will be great indeed

Destined for the history books

Headlining

The Biggest loser of all time

You are the antithesis of a hero

Orange is the new black

and you will wear it well

Evil Woman

Evil Woman

You scarred him for life
Midwife to the devil
So full of jealousy
You egotistical witch
Taking the gift of motherhood
To an unacceptable level

Poor child yearning for approval
Just wishing for the love of his mother
Instead he gets a competitor
A green-eyed monster
Craving the attention meant for him
As if she were his wicked stepmother

A pathological narcissist
Always cruel and wicked
With only love for herself
Doing damage for a lifetime
He was just an innocent boy
Now a man afflicted
