Wad Me Up

I am an easy target.

Emotions are always wrong.

Take them from my body,

And call my feelings wrong.

Question me.

Tell me I’m not real.

Because my emotions

Are wrong.


I am not simple

So I am wrong.

Twist me and dump me

Back in my hole.

Wad me up.

Forget all the wrong

I am

As you watch

Me disintegrate,


In the dead pool

Of your disgust.

    Strong, evocative stuff. I felt sad upon completion actually. Which I think means the poet’s done a good job
