Often bullied, more often tried In darkest hours, never cried Endless encounters with hope died On steepest odds, yet never shied I welcome abuse, give it your best Hunt like a dog, squish like a pest All this while, I take my rest Until forebearance comes to test For then, you must answer for your screwing Ponder upon all of your doing Ignorance is bliss, so is your unknowing Where I shall take you, no one loves going Do not take me for where I lie For my colours deceive the brightest sky Your pestering shall render your end nigh (Be warned) There is more to me than meets the eye

Hi Hussain, so nice to hear from you and I'm ecstatic you are getting "in the mood" again! It will be wonderful to read something new from you but your old ones are still nice to read too. Wonder how you are and hope life is treating you well. I bought an electric bike and am having a ball on it! Love, Lizzie

Oh my god, I didn't mean all that I did ok! I didn't even know it'd hurt you that badly, honest. I'm so sorry for offending you. This brilliantly rhymed poem scared the living daylights outta me man. How do you plan on avenging my ridicule? Please spare me... Pretty please (whimpers) (sobs). Regards and Profuse Apologies, Crabbe The Bully

Hussain: I'm sure glad I'm not the girl on the receiving end of this one (LOL) but very nicely penned! And I hope your frustrations are more imaginative than real but sometimes poetry can be a wonderful outlet for those "penned up" emotions that instead of releasing as anger we poets release in more creative ways. In sum, poetry is our release and our refuge. Anyway, GREAT poem and thanks 4 commenting on my poetry as well. You're far too kind with the compliments:)
