A Ketchup Heart

A Ketchup Heart

A Poem by Emily Dickinson Jr.

 

You say you love me

It's a lie

 

You're the reason I cry inside

 

You ask what's wrong

I curse your soul

 

You're the reason I hurt

You hit a girl so small

 

Each hit I take

The smaller I get

The less I can take

The more I fake

 

One day I'll snap too hard

One day you'll see

The pain you gave

And I'll recieve

 

You said your guilty

But you saw I was alright

 

So you're not anymore

 

Your an adult so you must be right

This bleeding heart isn't real

 

It's only ketchup, right?

Wow....I love the emotion you put in all your writing. I can feel the pain and questioning. This is really great-sad-but wonderfully written, nonetheless!

thank you :-) glad it came across well I do aim to do so
I love this. The breakneck pace at which the tone changes delighted me. It's reminiscent of standing outside when a blustery wind transforms itself into a storm.

awesome! :-) I'm glad it took you away. I love to hear about people getting absorbed into it.
This was absolutely destructive. The analogies you made were hard hitting, but neither those nor the title prepared me for the uppercut waiting in the final 3 lines. Beautiful.
