A Poem by Zoe
"

yea right

"
slap across my face.
hot coffee burning my arms.
shoved into the sharp corners of my bureau.
thrown outside, the cold freezes my tears.
no scars, just temporary pain.
mascara trails down my face, raw throat.
screaming to closed ears.
can anybody hear me?
no.
hate?
no. but they don't like me.
want to send me far away, but we have no money.
want me to see a shrink, but that's too expensive.
I don't want to get married.
I don't want to have kids. 
this prison of a house, even my room provides no solace.
my favorite place is the shower. 
drown my sorrows away. 
but this doesn't show on my face. 
I need to appear stronger for those around me.
Just apply some more mascara.
Tomorrow will be another day.
Maybe I'll "fall" down the stairs.

A excellent poem. Some lesson are learn the hard way. My youngest daughter who is fourteen had watched her sister's babies learn some good lessons. Kids are hard work. When you are young. A house can be a prison. Funny part. Later in a life. We will miss home and parent. A very good ending to a outstanding poem. Thank you.

Hi, I'm new here. A popular theme in my writing is sexuality. I think it's very important for a person to be in tune with their sexual side. I don't like to follow any poetry "rules"- just like to wr.. more..
