I'm A BullyI tell them they’re ugly,I'm A Bully5 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
I tell them they’re dumb,
I tell them they can’t do anything,
Anything at all.
I smack them upside the head,
Make them sob and cry.
I tell them they’re not worth it,
And maybe they should die.
I don’t know why I do it,
I don’t know why I try,
I guess I’m a bully,
But only to myself.
The BookI pull the volume of the the shelfThe Book2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's worn faded cloth cover is fraying at the corners
I take it along as I find a quiet spot
I take a seat cross legged
I tenderly open the well loved novel
The warm familiar scent of its aged pages greets my nose
I take a deep breath of the wonderful smell
I look around reality
Before the words remove me from it
To be lost in another fantastical world
