How I Spell H.A.T.E



A lion’s roar is my yawn

When I open my mouth a stream of curses flow out

Like the river that refuses to stop

Floods the surrounding land in the midst of a monsoon

Destroying all life in its wake

I am the woman who floats on water

Atop a broken door

All that’s left of my house

Arms spread up towards the sky

I scream at Your injustice

I am the boy who steals away from his house at the dead of night

Painting the world

How he sees it

So that when the world sees it

They realise that colours of anger reflect more than one emotion

I am the librarian who sits behind a shield all through the day

Cataloging every book known to man and more

Her hands move in sync

Creating music she so longs to hear

If only the world hadn’t told her to hush up

I am the girl

Pushed from side to side

If only there was someone brave enough to take a stand for me

If only I was brave enough to take a stand for myself

But alas I must wait till I grow up and realise this on my own

I am the scars on your hands

White and red lines

So perfectly spaced out

Your dying wish

Eternal reminders of what you wanted to escape

I am the gunshot wound on your shoulder

A gaping hole

If you take a look inside

All you’ll see are your flesh and bones

Reality that screams the lost value of life

I am a hero

Drinking away the confines of my insanity

Masking my true identity

Loneliness is my best friend

Why the hell did I take up this job?

I am your heart

Thumping away

Break dancing in your chest at the sight of him

You sell me short yet I am almighty

I piece myself back together, always ready for you to throw me at another

I am the words inked on your body

Something new everyday

Meaning unknown to you and you alone

A reminder of a past unforgettable

A vow
