The words stream from your mouth
Vitriol with no limit
Spewing forth, a vomit contaminating me,
Shredding my self-esteem
Shattering any speck of dignity.
The stench of the attack
Cuts me to the core
Leaving me a hollowed husk.
I cower in the corner of my mind
Powerless, paralysed with fear
All I can do is wait for you to tire.
When your tirade is exhausted
I am left alone
My mind working at nine to the dozen
I ask why?
You seem oblivious to any consequences
The desire to dominate far exceeds
Any understanding of what might be
The long-term results.
Love disappeared long ago
Replaced by the tantrums
The little hard done girl
Now in the body of an adult.
As I predicted you are alone
Deserted by those you should have nurtured
They avoid you, frustrated by your obstinacy,
But in true form, you have replaced them
Pseudo friends, pretending to be,
You claim it was never your fault
‘They should have known,’
They are the selfish ones
And so the acrimonious vomit
The same stink, different flavour,
But consistent nevertheless.

A portrait of a truly toxic individual! Way to embrace the challenge
Thanks so much Yves, a fun challenge. Gave me the impetus to release all that pent up aggression.
we need to let it out sometimes and writing is a constructive and cathartic medium
Very heartfelt emotions. A portrait of a nasty person.
Hi Sadje, thanks and you are spot on.
I have an idea from some of your previous posts.
Wow! That’s telling it.
Just how it was.
Floored for suitable comment. I can’t say *nice* given the context. But good, yea.
Thanks Crispina, this prompt wasn’t one to attract a ‘nice’ comment.
Nah. Yet it was good writing, and that must rate a good comment
Excellent Michael. I have someone in mind who this fits quite well……………….!!
They seem to haunt us don’t they?? Have a good weekend.
It was wet and chilly, but we are good. Hope you are too Michael,
Doing ok Di. Had the weekend in Queensland at my nephew’s wedding.
Congrats and best wishes to the happy couple.
So sad that there are some people like that – even sadder when it’s someone we know, Michael.
Sadder when it’s more reality than you want to admit to
Yes, I know. Even sadder when it has happened to someone you know but have never met.
