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
Nothing more than.....
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 right here
I have nothing more to say
I hope you all have a great new year.

TaTa SKAT in the Hat

Skat, the artist reveals what bubbles forth ourn cerebral as the volcano does it's molten...from what begs to be released from ourn engram unto even a moment with recent perspire! How wonderfully you have reminded me as one of your fans that true can be delivered within poetic's spew.... Ty dear poet...much love, james

Hate is deep. Goodbye to such persons. Love is mutual anyway. I like it, friend.

Loved this piece!! It was raw, witty, imaginative, and had great imagery. The repetition of the notion that the antogonist "hates everything you stand for" is so powerful against your ironic ending where you say, "I judged you from the beginning." Excellent write!! Thanks for sharing!!
