Bullying

A Poem by Hush Hush

      BRAND NEW
          WAS I
IGNORANCE IS A BLISS
SOMEONE ONCE SAID
WORDLESS INSULTS
THEY KNEW HOW 
FRAGILE I WAS
YET THEY STILL
STEPPED ON THE GLASS
RUNNING LIKE THERE
       WAS NO
      2MORROW
WONDERING WHY?
HOW 2 STOP IT?
MADE ME FALL
DEEPER AND DEEPER INTO
       DESPAIR
MAKE IT ALL FREEZE!
4 WHITE WALLS
& A CUBE OF SUGAR
SWEET AND SOUR
I LIKED IT
SPYING
THROUGH BINOCULARS
I WATCHED THEM
   BLEED
  DETACHED
ROSES FOR THE TEARS
ON YOUR PURPLE CHEEK.

Wooow! I like it! I mean, I don't fully get the figurative language and meaning yet... or maybe I do. Imma try! xD

Okay, the child is new, fragile, naive, and then the bullies come and step all over him/her. They make his problems worse, and so the kid runs, thinking of why they do bad things, how to stop it, making him go down into a dark abyss where he won't receive help and he can't get out.

TIMESKIP!

And then he's in the looney bin (white walls), suggesting that bullying causes kids to suffer depression and other mentally unwell symptoms. ..."cube of sugar" "sweet and sour" means the sweet reality, or... sweet revenge, which can also be sour! Ah-ha! And so he mentions spying on them as he watches them die. "Roses for the tears" can imply that his suffering might have been appeased by their deaths, and "On your purple cheek" can imply that their bruised faces, crying in shame perhaps, is being topped with those roses of the bullied kid's satisfaction of their situation!

SHAZAM! Analysis, done! I love reading ppl's poetry. Even if I might be wrong. This is an awesome piece. I hope you win the contest. ^ w ^
