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?

Matters of righteousness knows no age. It is simply wrong or right not based on age.
I've learned that not all that's wrinkled in navigating time is wise.

Very aptly said
Nice to see you again. Another great poem indeed.
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?...

I smile to your effort; you really have talent and gutsy expression. Bravo to you for the poem and the user name; Emily is a love of heart and mind for many, me too. Would you care to read mine? I am new around here, even though not unknown (I hope) because I post in many other sites.
