The poem is below.



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.

C'mon, SKAT! Don't cut us all off. And if you must build a wall, be sure to build a a good gate and oil it frequently so it doesn't squeal so loud it awakens the neighbors. The way it is now, you have no way to vent. ......I hope you find your way. RAY

Hi SKAT, Never say goodbye! Relations are not made for break-up, they are made to be kept forever!!! This is how I feel. Good work my friend!

So many people including me can relate to your post SKAT. I though this is a place i could express my thoughts but realized i am speaking with a blocked ears. Ears that only resonate wth certain sounds....Unfortunately...as a Poet, i don't have only one, but many... hope you come back and share your talent with us.

SKAT -- Billy the kidster is in a bad way. He's talking not only about depression, but of his heart pounding out of his chest and I'm very worried. If you or PD have his actual phone number --- please call him. He has taken medication and has mentioned he may have passed out! I have no idea when or if you'll read this. I don't know Billy well, but I am very worried. _ cyndi

Skat A I can relate to how you are feeling in this, your last posted write. You (in May 2016) commented on my last written in 2009, and I really appreciate it. I would love to read more of what you have to say. There must be a lot of people that enjoyed your work.

Such a tragedy to see someone with so much talent and with so much to say hide theirself away and refuse to come into the light that is more welcoming than anywhere else. Poetry Soup NEEDS you to share yourself with us. Please, reconsider your position and re-join our world. You are very special, even if you refuse to believe as much. xx
