The Face of My Enemy

The Face of My Enemy

A Poem by Christina May Shanaberg
"

Just a reflection on how ugly mean people are!

"

THE FACE OF MY ENEMY

 

The face of my enemy is cold,

Featureless, and wrinkled old;

It is, sadly, so very unhappy;

Never beautiful will it be;

Only a blank, unknowing expression,

Filled with the decay of depression;

Blind and savagely wild eyes;

A hardened stone never cries;

The bleached mouth of evil;

The scorched skin of a devil;

Gazing, insanely, into another place;

Scarred by anger, the striped face;

Made of dry, dull, dirty clay

To, in my mind, erode away.

I love your poetry, short, sweet, powerful and to the point. Mean people are the ugliest of them all!

Enemies come in different forms ..... Some may be beautiful on the outside, others rather plain or sometimes its our own reflection. No matter which form it takes it can take over every waking thought. A very good write well done !

The enemy is never faceless we just refuse to see it... often we are our own worst enemy with our fears and doubts. I really like this, very powerful work.

Beautiful writing. And so true, even the most beautiful people's attitudes can make them ugly, at least in my eyes.
