I've seen the way you look at me
I've seen the way you look at them
Without wanting to admit, you hate everything I stand for
Lying to yourself, you are sweet, caring and better
Still, you look at me and hate everything I stand for
You are a cheat - A liar - A toilet flushing down rain

You seek and want my attention, yet you have no domain
Your THANK YOU's are cheaper than a grin on a Walmart bag
The light - The light - That shines upon your expression
Sour grapes traveling towards the darkest region of the sun
Yes, simple prunes basking all the time!!!!!
Shaking powdered grapes from lobe to lobe
Watching humping wild hogs who can't eat cake
---Desperately you mock yourself---

Before you draw a blank, let me remind you
You look at me and hate everything I stand for
The way I smile, carry myself every day
I never claim to be perfect, but better with no anvil
You can't bear the way I stand in front of the soap display
I embrace with all my spirit, at the end of every day
I'm so glad I am nothing like you or them
In reality, I judged you the moment you walked in

Before the year ends, I will end my affair with everyone
I have nothing more to say
I hope you all have a great new year.

    Sounds like a very sad affair. One that no one would want or deserve to be a part of. Life is too short and precious to allow others to rain on your parade. But when you do things for others in the Lord's Name, that rain suddenly feels like a cool refreshing shower on a hot summer day. Listen to the hurt in their words and the sadness that surrounds them. Thank the Lord, because you know better. And then speak to them from your heart, as you have always done in all of your beautiful works.

    I hope this is not indication that someone here has been such a jerk, to make you want to leave !! :( There will always be miserable people, (misery loves company)...., but you bring warmth to the Soup, so please don't leave! (If that what this is about !).. And before I leave, I must thank you for my recent placement in the last contest! Thanks so much Skat!

    Hi Skat A, John Byrd here. Thanks for posting and support. A (very) brief bio before I give you my thoughts on this. 36 years old with fifteen years writing experience. Most stuff has to do with spirituality, love, illness. So here are my thoughts on Goodbye. Nice. Scathing response to whatever is ailing you. This was a fun read. Had to read twice just to absorb the viscera. Well done, and keep it up!

    My goodness, dear SKAT, this is indeed powerfully emotional writing! I was moved to the anger, the pity, and eventually the apathy of this piece. Very nice writing!

    Skat, happy there is no goodbye but that you drop in on us from time to time ...and still do your contests, Constance

    A lot of truth in this poem. Sometime it is time to go and end toxic relationships. The one thing I stumbled over, is ending the affair with every one. That sounds suicidal, but I do not believe that you mean that. I send you a smile, not from a Wall Mart bag, but from the heart. Kai

    Hi Skat, I think I just figured out how to reply to you. Hope so... Thanks for the Welcome. I hope you enjoyed my first post. I certainly enjoyed your GOODBYE - though I hope its not. It's a magnificent poem. I can feel the hurt. Richard

    Wow I have had those moments with people. You feel like they are either to obsorbed with themselves or to Jelous to really even see you. Or else they just see your past and not your present. I can very much relate!

    Ouch ... what a stinging poem that cuts straight to the heart: "Your THANK YOU's are cheaper than a grin on a Walmart bag." ... I would not like to be the person this poem was aimed towards ... but powerful and expressive writing, Skat. Hope you've recovered since this was written ...

    I thank God I wasn't around when you said those words coz even now I can still feel their fire cutting through a disgraced heart!!!....This has been a great read and it's actually one of my favourite dear.

    Nice read! My favorite is the third stanza b/c it reveals so much of her pain just dealing with the judgement. Excellent Free Verse.

    If this piece doesn't expose pretense for what it really is then I don't know what else will brought it home SKAT
  1. Date: 5/9/2016 5:25:00 AM

    That was beautiful. I can't say much because i just started out on my poetic venture, but you truly expressed your feelings beautifully.

    It's spring and the flowers are blooming, and hope you find it in your heart to start writing again. Gulity here for not writing myself caring for two Alzheimer parents, and a sick English mastiff...I find myself funtioning like a machine reaching out and caring for others but there is this void inside when I try to write a poem-- something is lost inside. I hope you find a path that makes you complete; my heart tells me you need to write again for balance. ~ Smiles for You
