Death Wish

Death Wish

A Poem by Marie Harrison

A deadly poem


Death Wish


Really, I don’t hold many grudges

But tonight I wish you were dead!



With your pasty white tongue

Hanging out,

And your dull eyes

Rolled-up in the

Back of your hairless head!


I’m willing to offer

You my forgiveness

Or at least I'll try,

As long as you

Are toes-up and

 No longer alive!


I’m your angry 

Black Magic Mama

Now I’m going to

Cast a nasty spell

That will cause

Your body to quickly swell-up

Rot and smell


Because you were no Officer

nor a Gent to me

Soon your life will be bloody spent!



With any luck,

My love,

You’ll die a painful death tonight

Looking directly into my baby blue eyes!


Say your last prayers

Make all of your amends

Prepare to die

Time to kiss

Your worthless life goodbye!

I felt the anger and resentment resonating powerfully in every syllable...

Love the anger in this poem! Rant and rave girl!

A strong poem with some anger and some desire for revenge. I like the desire of this poem. No weakness. Just honest and direct words. A excellent poem.
