Reality Bites

Reality Bites

A Poem by Kerri Hart

Everyone says reality bites,

but I don't think thats the problem.

I mean, everyone bites, or gets bitten, at a point in their life.

The problem is, reality is like a vampire, and when it clamps on,

it doesn't let go, sucking the blood until there is nothing but hollowness in the pit of your

heart.

Truth! I love the analogy you've designed - Reality won't let go till it sucks you dry, great work!

For some reason, I thought you were going to end with the word soul. I really love that you chose heart instead. It makes the whole poem.

I know that feeling. Life grabs hold of you and just seems to keep draining everything you have left.

Excuse the grammar Nazi in me: their should be there. I think.

I enjoyed reading.
Thanks for sharing.
