"13 Stitches"

A Poem by Zoe Anne

"13 Stitches"

One.
I won't stop carving into my skin until I'm done.
Two.
I hate you.
Three.
You hate me.
Four.
You came back for more.
Five.
All you do is connive.
Six.
I trusted you just for kicks.
Seven.
You gave me hell, so you could get heaven.
Eight.
I'll get my revenge; it's fate.
Nine.
You whispered too many lies through the grapevine.
Ten.
I'll slash you with every stroke of my pen.
Eleven.
Don't worry; I'll get even.
Twelve.
You brought it all on yourself.
Thirteen.
I'll uncover the truths that were once obscene.
Thirteen stitches;
Once I defeat you, I'll feed your bones to the witches.

If only this were the glory days of writers when one's pen was more dangerous than sword steel or musket ball. When a well penned satirical write could destroy your victim's reputation. This really has the same level of poison and retribution that such a poem would be, well done! Keep the ink flowing freely!!

Yes, very creative and written differently than most writers. It's always hard to get away from other people's ideas and form your own. Like after Twilight became a hit so many people wrote books about vampires. They didn't have creativity or imagination. But you do go off the beaten path in this poem. Great job.

This pretty much gets your point across. I like the metaphor of stitches as it relates to your betrayal, or did you really cut yourself up? An interesting presentation. Very creative write.
