Random Poem:

the green-eyed monster has it’s reasons

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