YOUR GHASTLY LITTLE HUNGER GAMES

YOUR GHASTLY LITTLE HUNGER GAMES

A Poem by M. L. F.
"

WOE TO THE ONES WHO LIE AND PLOT... THE LIGHT WILL ALWAYS SEARCH YOU OUT...

"

Today I wear a smirking smile, with “less than” love I walked the mile

But now I’m free to spread my wings, No longer bound by sparkling things

I’m bursting out amidst the blue, a world of those surpassing you

They gaze at me, I gaze back too, such chemistry so overdue

For all have told me, you did too, that I deserved much more than you

And everyone will one day know, how warped you are, how far you’d go

The things you did were inhumane, your ghastly little hunger games

Now you’re the one in worried tears, watching as I trample fears

And when the white coats sum you up and finally tell you, you’re corrupt

Don’t look to me, I’ve had enough, I’ve drunk enough from “less than’s” cup

You’re arrogance, your highest crown, the pride before you got pushed down

Will one day soon feel so profound when all have watched your ego drown

You are an extraordinary writer of cautionary pieces. I am a big fan of the dark, yet protective veil you seem to cast over some of your pieces. A salivating sense of righteousness I can certainly vibe to. Your description is quite fitting for this piece; it sums it up quite well. I also think if flow was on your target-of-an-agenda, then you have landed a mighty bulls-eye. Smooth my friend, like jazz. Real smooth.

Your verse seems to take on a build up and swiftly cut down approach, as if you have a sharp tongue indeed.

Only saying enough to set the tone; and then going in for the kill.

It makes for good reading. I'm learning a lot from your style.

Much love.

Love the pem. You captured the when you think you have someone wrapped around your finger then when they are gone you realize how foolish you were to behave that way. Love " now you're the one in worried tears" because been the one with the ego and drown so it hit home of how foolish some of us can be. Thanks for sharing this powerful poem.

Beautifully written and full of imagery. Vague enough that a person can read it from many different angles, but not too vague that it loses its power.

I love it when a poet actually pays attention to rhythm and metre.This poem conveyed an overwhelming sense of confidence commingled with a hint of pride and sassiness. I loved it. I look forward to reading more of your poems.

You are more than welcome. I really enjoy reading your poetry.
Didn't read the other draft(s) but I doubt they sounded as good as this.
The flow passed only by the potent content...ya gotta admire the strength and resolve
to move on WITHOUT the presence of or need for vengeance.
A wonderful read, thanks for sharing this 100/100!

I love the mood of this poem, really edgy and emotional. You really nailed that feel and I love it. I also love the smoothness the rhyme adds. The poem flows very well as I read it, however the third last line (Don’t look to me, I’ve had enough, I’ve drunk enough from “less than’s” cup), tripped me up a little as I read it, and that broke the flow a little. Other than that though, I love this poem :) can't wait to read more of your work!
