She did it again! My selected prompt for today came from the same source as yesterday – http://morgandragonwillow.com/2013/04/a-to-z-poetry-prompt-critical-mass.html. I was intrigued by the Constanza form and the invitation to write a poem that was a rant. Heaven knows there’s been enough in my life to rant about over the years. This particular outburst was very cleansing to put on paper! Hope you like it –
Chastise me if you really must.
You condescending, crazy creep.
Contempt consumes me and I weep.
Be cold and callous, I’ll adjust.
Enough of your controlling crap.
You conned me with your crafty trap.
Show your carelessness and disgust.
I can be cold-hearted like you.
I won’t be condescended to.
Combative, conceited, unjust.
So cowardly you cramped my style
I was conflicted for a while.
Compulsive cheating broke my trust.
Confronted now you crawl away.
Cross my heart, I hope yours decays.
