Random Poem:

the green-eyed monster has it’s reasons
nomoreink

she has lost the meaning of a beautiful day
 1
because she cant go outside anyway
 2
 
 
while they enjoy their summer dessert
 3
she sits here wishing for reality to reassert
 4
 
 
it’s not fair to take a key and lock her up,
 5
giving her only a barren paper cup
 6
 
 
in which she pours and pours out her rage
 7
while they run pretty on a fake plastic stage
 8
 
 
she has lost the meaning of a beautiful morning
 9
because she must endure storms without any warning
 10
 
 
while they want more than what they already own
 11
all she has is anguish buried deeper than the bone
 12
 
 
its not fair that she’s never good enough
 13
while they are able to create things from raw stuff
 14
 
 
they apply their lip gloss and iron their hair
 15
when she must use tangled, undecipherable words to swear
 16
 
 
and while they look forward to a beautiful day
 17
she cant go outside in any way
 18
 
 
and while they look forward to a beautiful morning
 19
she must endure storms disregarding any warning
 20
 
 
let the curtains fall
 21
let the veils blind
 22
let them have it all
 23
but don’t let her come
 24
out from behind
 25
