Ruinous POV


Ruinous POV

composed of spite and an orderly fury
hospitality is extended to wrath and loathing
to blame himself would be absurd
so all of the radiating anguish and raw animosity
are flung with abandon
to land haphazardly on the unsuspecting
the needy and the grateful victims
who will utilize this undeserved ire
to avoid and temporarily hush
the desperate cries of their own cracked hearts

Very nicely delineated. The "See what you made me do" syndrome exposed in all its ingenuous glory. Original and incisive!

Marsink commented on Ruinous POV


Very specific summation for those who feel obligated to assure that they can oblige others to be as conteptuous about living as they are predisposed to. I can read this as a long, inspired statement, whose posessor is morally bankrupt. Applause Crescendo!!

simone, These words certainly send the message that some people deal with. It is a sad state of affairs what they allow to happen to themselves due to their own selfishness. ginga

We seldom accept the blame of our own rage and as result say, "They made me angry." I have seen over and over again but the human who is mature accepts the consequences of his/her ire and tames it. Well done, my friend.



Thank you so much for the read and the comment. You absolutely got exactly what I was trying to say!

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
