Chelcie.

Haunting how I
sense your intentions:

hungry for power
and recognition,

jealous of,
plotting against
living obstacles,

throwing those
no better than you
under the bus
to score points
with authority,

then turning around,
striving to elicit
sympathy,

all while sustaining
the surface illusion
of empathy, juggling
internal contradictions…

Tell me, who’s side
are you really on?

All of us
or merely your own?

    Hey, I have a poetry corner and I definitely want to feature this. Crazy enough this was the first poem I read for tonight and it grabbed me that quick. Nice introspective piece. I will reblog your post so others can see more of your work. Again nicely done.
