Writing Prompt Wednesday – “Hate”


Scream by Slawa

Hot, heavy and smothering

A thick blanket of emotion that

Rather than coddle and comfort

Itches and irritates the sliver of sanity

That remains in the recesses of my mind

Even the smallest action of yours

Whether directed at me, someone else,

Or nothing at all

Stirs a force within that my body can’t contain

Breathe, breathe

Even breaths hiss through gritted teeth

Nothing can calm my absolute hatred

Your very existence sets my blood boiling

And no one else seems to feel the same

They don’t see you–the real you

And how?

Willful blindness, ignorance, perhaps

Or your powers of deceit

Manipulative creature that you are

You are not of this earth

And my hatred is the only tell
