That broken record

By Deathkitten

I borrow heartache & sorrow
to feel through blinding light
and put up the fight against tomorrow
replacing it with a shield made of hatred
scarred by old dirty stones
and sharpened knives in search of my back
and the semi-dangerous threats
filled with fury & rage
from a distance
that never inflicts as much pain
as one would hope
Still...
it hasn't taken over me
or my heart
Not hatred
It just lives in the dark
where it's cool
and free of heavy burden
forced repeatedly amongst our kind
Yes- It will feel
and it will kill
YOU
Slowly...
while it protects me
Never fucking me over
It was trapped only once
so don't fluff your ego
I don't mind co-existing
I find it...
rather interesting
So let's play nice
and all get along
I'd hate to hear that broken record
You know...
the same dance
The same song

Hatred is nothing if not a weapon, use it well and you won't have to use it often, use it badly you become the weapon and hate the wielder. Great write DK, there's a certain calmness to this that speaks volumes.

    This is by far the best one you've written. it seems as though you didn't just jot your rage.. you released it with class and talent and took your time to place each line or word where it needed to be to be felt as you felt it. fucking perfectly delivered i'm impressed and turned on . i think i'll keep this one. a totally different yet luring side of you that makes it hard to resist. mmmmmmmm.. finger licking fucking good girl.

    Well, I tend to have a low bullshit tolerance & i'm fairly blunt. My openness has been known to catch many off guard. Thanks, Poptart.
