LET LOOSE

You play the victim,
but all I see is an abusive coward,
that murdered my mind and got caught.
Words leave your mouth
(that I used to kiss with such a hunger),
and they evoke anger,
because they taste
of a deliberately provoked jealousy in me.
I answer you
in a series of questions,
that leave my heart aching
(and I instantly regret asking),
so I scream,
in order to drown out answers
that you probably won’t dare to even whisper.
You told me,
that she reminded you of me,
but honey,
every man is a spitting image of you,
I just never gave them the pleasure.
Loyalty is measured
by the ever-growing thickness of the rope
that ties us to each other…
and baby,
I’m cutting you loose.

    slam dunk woah – loved this and the 5 line close – a viper heading for its prey.
    You told me, that she reminded you of me….. wrong words my boy…
    zapped in the right places Ms. Owl – well done.

    Busted! Thanks for liking my latest. Liked this poem enough to follow this blog but it will take a while before reading your work in more detail. So, for now, greetings and best wishes from a fellow poet and blogger.

    poem after poem, you weave a compelling, beautiful tapestry … alive with voices, alive with pleasure, alive with suffering and resolve. exquisite x tony

    Yeah Yeah Yeah and Yeah!!!

    I’m blown away by your power, Ms Owl!! LET LOOSE is prose right up my alley; simple, straightforward and dripping with venom. Not one bit of emotion was lost in your words. Unreal!

    Love the build up to the “cutting loose” lines:

    “Loyalty is measured
    by the ever-growing thickness of the rope
    that ties us to each other…
    and baby,
    I’m cutting you loose.”

    Awesome!
