Poem: Indifference

***

keen blade poised

bosom heaving

cut the bastard out!

.

keen blade poised

children screaming

cut the bastard out!

.

keen blade poised

nightmare living

cut the bastard out!

.

keen blade poised

hand is shaking

cut the bastard out!

.

poison is as poison does

livid in my veins

he’s pulled me into living hell

indifference I must claim

.

INDIFFERENCE please!

bosom heaving

(put the knife away)

.

INDIFFERENCE please!

children screaming

(put the knife away)

.

INDIFFERENCE please!

nightmare living

(put the knife away)

.

INDIFFERENCE please!

hand is shaking

(put the knife away)

.

no more toxin

no more hate

no more love

I’ll make my fate!

.

strong and poised

breath is steady

I shall walk away
