Tormentors

Tormentors

A Poem by Relic
"

Just thoughts.

"
They're quick to pounce the weakest ones
with evil, sinister threats.
They're not concerned with what you'll do,
they've snagged you in their nets.

They'll use their might to sneer and wound
with words hurled like a dart.
Had I the tools to oust their hate
I'd purge their vicious heart.

The last two lines reach out to me on a personal level. I want to hurt the one who hurt me (and still does hurt), but that makes me just bad., right?

Thank you for sharing!

Great poem. In my opinion, shorter poems, when done well like this one, can have a powerful effect of conveying the message bluntly and with no apologies. No need to mince words when you have the power and truth of beautiful ones like these. Truly, well done.

Thanks so much for your thoughts, Gwen. :)
I'm pretty sure, people who enjoy bullying-
Have a superiority complex. The reality is- They're miserable. Obviously, unstable. And want others to feel even worse than that. Even worse than they do.

It's heart-breaking to think someone, somewhere is going through this. I hope they have the strength and courage; to make a stand and for those around them, to not just standby and observe, but speak up against bullying.

And also, for others to protect themselves from falling prey to these- Tormentors.

Very powerful message in your poem Relic.

Thanks so much, Roma.
Since my father was a longtime sexual predator & a narcissistic bully, I'm very familiar with the way these kinds of people have a radar to pick up those who won't fight back. Many times, becuz of my mellow nature, such bullies mistake me for a victim. But watch out when I have had enuf of one's predatory ways! You've painted the picture accurately using SHOW instead of tell, so we can recognize such jerks. It almost feels like you are sharing this out of a protective spirit (which I very much like) Fondly, Margie
