Vinegar Love

Vinegar Love

A Poem by Marie Harrison

An angst poem.



















Vinegar Love

Your love is

Like vinegar.

It's bitter

To my tongue,

It burns my heart,

And it pickles

My soul.


Your promises

Are as empty

To me as my

Bank account

Was when you were

Finished with me.


To think that

I believed

That you could

Spend your

Life sharing good

Times with me,

Feeling happy

And secure. 


That is just

As crazy as

Believing that

You could

Spin a mountain

Of manure

Into a ship

Filled with gold.


My ability to trust

Has been depleted,

Since all of my hopes

And dreams of building

A family with you

Have been defeated.


Thank God your sperm

Never took me to carry

A baby full-term. 


Raising spawn from

You would be like

Learning to live my

Life with my brain

Full of worms.


Your head

Is so huge

So bald

And so ugly.


The view makes me

Laugh and

Smile so smugly.


Let's see who you

Find to take my place.


Poor girl,

After awhile

She will have no

Smile on her face.


For smiles,

You and your

Wretched family

Will surely erase.


So let me move on

As quickly as I can,

Only then

I might finally

Have a chance to

Meet a real man.


Goodbye my love.

It was you,

Who I cherished

For so many years.


No longer

Will I wait

Patiently for my

Life to appear.


Now my life

Will take off,

My dreams shall

Take place,

And my tears

Will dry up

Like your Mom's

Ugly face.

I liked this poem. I could feel anger in your words too. The last line in rather funny. The rest of the poem is darker though. Good job. Thanks for sharing. :)

This poem is written very well. I've favourited it.

I liked the way you painted the words with dark green, and there was humor in your disgust, determination in your pain, and faith during difficult recovery. Good write. Thanks for sharing.

Baha! Oh my god, I feel so bad for laughing almost the whole time... I just love the way this is written... I certainly hope you don't have these feelings, I know how anger and betrayal hurt and fester.

This poem just seems to me like an adult finally letting loose and being a little mean, you know? Nicely written (:

I love the anger in this! Excellent job!

Posted 9 Years Ago

I had to finish reading this poem. It has a lot of anger and a viewing insight with an outside view.

Posted 9 Years Ago

Your tone is fantastic. I really enjoyed the sarcasam mixed with anger and dark humor about how you once felt and how you feel now. Awesome comparisons.
