The Juliet Wretch

The Juliet Wretch

A Poem by KatDarkness

Blow his heart out
Like a candle, leave him opalescent and 
Waning, a lily, waxy and ailing for every time he sent you 
To your blank heaving Tylenol seas. 

You're so heavenly monochromatic,
Faded fairy-girl, washed out and 
Drained out and bled all her dreams out,
All tragic eyes, 
So Shakespearean, so endearing,
I will crush you, Juliet,
I'll pull all your petals off 
Because you know he loves me not. 

You can chew all you want on your bloodless lips, 
'Til I lacerate what your silk mouthful of pearls can't cut,
But don't you dare think I can't loathe the pretty,
Don't pray that my awe could make me fear you,
'Cause Sephora can't save you from what I will do.

"I'll pull all your petals off
Because you know he loves me not. "

The anger in this poem supplies more heat than the coals of strong forge. You get your point across brilliantly. Applause from every seat in the arena.
