A Poem by Nish Nish the Fish

notice a pattern yet?


Every word that drools
out of your mouth is like a time bomb,
finding its way into my heart,
and counting down the seconds until
I explode on the inside.

Those atrocious words,
disguised in truth,
thriving in hypocrisy,
they stab me like a thousand sharp
knives, aiming for my insecurity.

Those despicable words,
carving out a hole in my confidence,
shooting at me with hate, and all the
other bad stuff in the world.

Those dangerous words,
drinking up my tears and feeding on
my sorrow.
they torture me, like that child called it.

Your words sting,
like a poisonous bee,
like hydrogen peroxide on a bleeding wound,
like shame, and guilt, and anger.

and for all of that evil, i hate you.

i hate you because you tell lies,
because i do work hard,
do walk tall,
do dive into pools filled with paranas,
   and still come out alive,
do crave perfection.

but why would you believe me?
Probably cus i'm not dead yet.

dedicated to my father.

I have a dad like that. I know how it feels. It slowly kills you, so stand up strong. I like the "hydrogen peroxide" part. Lying affects everyone; it is a uncured disease.

Wow, this was really awesome. I can feel and see the wanting to be free and rebel from a world of pain and despair. I'm going thru these exact things, myself. Mostly my mother, I really dont like. I mean, I love her, it's just that I dont like her, if that makes sense lol. It's been that way for a long time, so I definitely know what you're goin' thru. Very deep and strong, this write. Great work. Hang in there :)
