A year ago
today
I bought from
you
This noxious
brew
So that I might
poison my friends
with the words
I say.
A year ago
today,
too steep a price
did I pay;
I gave you
joy for hate
love for fear.
I hate you
Though I hold
you dear,
My skin
that binds
me within,
and this feeling
is of couse
buyer's remorse.

------
"You have lied to me, my dear Morpheous, and I have ended our little game; I wonder if I fear the truth more than your lies?"

Nice job
Hmmmm, very abstract, but I like it. The words flow and the rhyming is subtle. I would be interested in knowing the inspiration behind this piece.

it's beautiful
as appleblossom said, I'm interested in the inspiration for this poem...should I be worried, B? I thought the imagery through metaphor was fantastic. Keep up the good work.

Nice job!
I really liked this.
The idea is so simple, yet very effective. I'll bet we've all made regretful purchases of one sort ar another.

Inspiration
Co.K, Apple: this came from I time that I allowed my anger and frustration to rule my decisions. A near and dear friend of mine hurt me a long time ago, and I responded first in shock and pain, but those were soon followed by rage and retaliation. There is no reason to worry, W. That's (mostly) in the past. It is merely one of the less flattering things I have seen in my rearview mirror.
