Premeditated- For Reverse Contest

Premeditated
The pain you inflict
The trap that you set
Ordered by obsession	
Made of twisted ropes
Premeditated
Unintentional wounds
Can be forgiven
Thoughtless words and acts
Like sand through fingers
For premeditated Spite
More grace than usual needed
To forgive
Born in hate
Rooted in misconceptions
Fed by jealousy
Premeditated murder of a soul
A higher sentence
Longer time
Unforgivable crime
Premeditated

August 12, 2013
For Craig Cornish's Reverse Contest

    I think I will stay away from those foolish fish. It's probably their own fault for dropping out of school! Sorry bad pun. There may be a poem in there somewhere.

    Yes...it usually does to those who have grown up eating meat. I just don't have a taste for it, so...it isn't even tempting to me! Chocolate on the other hand....heaven help us! :) Probably the worse of two evils! Thanks for stopping by!

    Hey sweetie! Yes...good for you! Lots of people are going vegetarian or vegan these days. I'm lacto ovo vegetarian...yes, I have eggs and dairy products, but...wish I could cut those out as well. I love cheese too much and yogurt...WOW! ;) Chicken breasts are good for ya...least amount of fat in those...Salad...GOOD FOR YOU! Warm hugs back at ya, KENNY!

    I like the whole poem but I feel blocked by the blown away line. It may just be me so don't alter it if it feels right to you. Have a good night Eileen, I was pleased to see you wrote a couple of poems for me to read.

    You've done a great job here, reads well in both directions, this behaviour is unacceptable, that's about the content of the poem, not that you've done a great job lol. Take care, Richard

    YOU are a big TEASE, Mr Seal....Hmmmmmmm....think Eileen, think of a witty come back....Hmmmmmmmm....I'm stumped on this one....You're just jealous that you can't write one of these! HA HA! There...did that get you going?

    Thank you Eileen, loved those words. Gossip is one of the worst nasties that can be put on people; seemingly harmless but potentially evil....Peter

    Oh Peter.....you are SO right. "Social cannibalism" it's been called. Sometimes we "innocently" pass on comments and the ripple effect is devastating....Thanks for the visit! :)

    :) I'm afraid it is VERY much so! I just can't get any meat down me. I'm...repulsed by the idea of eating something dead. I know...that is rather extreme wording, but it's true. Richard, animals are prone to disease like we are...cancer, diabetes, etc...Some animals are scavengers are eat refuse...which we then take into our bodies, and then those that are edible...are pumped full of hormones to get them fat!

    I react the same way when I'm at a restaurant and they feed me a "Salad" as an appetizer instead of the juicy cheese steak sandwich I asked for. Heartless waiters. But, in all seriousness, there are so many painful reality checks in these lines. One never forgets how another makes them feel. Strong piece!

    Last...last..I stick out here in the Middle East like a sore thumb..meat is a very big part of hospitality. Hubby and daughter are NOT vegetarian, and I often get heat from family for my stance... :( I tried cooking meat, but...it's so hard to do..so, when they get a hankering for meat...we eat out, or get invited by the in-laws...I'm bad, but...I can't change who I am....Lots of actors are embracing the vegetarian vegan lifestyle...I was reading up on it yesterday by chance. It IS the healthier way to go...less cholesterol...if I could only hate sweets as much! ;) Hope I didn't offend anyone...that's just me!

    Cont...last... ;) There are so many substitutes that can be used that can give you the protein you need...soya products...I use them in my cooking. Also, my church organization produces wonderful meat substitutes...hot dogs, burgers, chicken "breasts"...that taste like meat...to help people make the transition, I guess. If I could go vegan, I would....but I love dairy products...like strained yogurt..people here thrive on it. Eggs, I try not to think about it when I eat them...

    Cont...some chickens are cooped up and aren't even allowed to walk around while they are being fed, and they go so crazy in these confines that they try to poke each others eyes out. Yes..I've read this. So, also...the poor animals suffer before their deaths...biology class did it for me...I was vegetarian before that but AFTER that, I just couldn't even think of eating meat. With mad cow, and bird flu, and foolish fish (made that one up), it is just safer not to!

    What! Say it isn't so! I am definately a carnivore myself. I do however respect the decision. Maybe you can answer my question. Why do vegitarians make there food look and taste like meet? Inquiring minds want to know.

    :) Thanks, Drake! :) I really can't go on this juicy cheese steak trip with you cause I'm vegetarian! ;) But.....I get the drift...Heartless heartless waiters! I don't even eat jello or marshmallows if they have animal gelatin in them...yea...I'm silly that way! Glad you liked the poem, my dear!

    Excellent write Eileen.....the murder of someone's soul done with hateful intent is by far the most unforgivable. Reads awesome both ways. Hugs
