She dallies on my doorstep;
paying a visit again
Wearisome worry waits
until I let her come in.

I don’t see her at first
when she knocks at the door;
but the perfume of infamous insanity
pummels me to the floor.

She steps right into me;
no concern for my well-being;
rushes me up the stairs;
what can she be seeing?

I follow the odor
like a hound on the hunt
What disaster awaits?
Will I manage the bunt?

She sits majestically
having made herself at home;
gnawing at my guts,
a dog with her favorite bone.

“You’re not welcome here,” I say.
“It’s time for you to leave.”
She laughs liquid and loud.
Gazing into my eyes
         as she sucks on my beliefs.

    A brilliant piece on the friend who hangs around and sucks you dry... you don't need her. Show her the door and get on with your life. Well done Margie! Best wishes, Keith
