Mother of Poison

Thu, 08/17/2017 - 22:04 -- monaibm

Her words spit venom

She is a self proclaimed high being

She is the mother of poison

and I am poison

I am poisoned

I am the seed sprouted only to spread the wicked word

She spit the venom into me

I, then, spit the venom into them

Like a scorpion, she stabs

Like a snake, she silently lurks

Like a spider, she goes about unnoticed

I am unaware of the sting of my words

Until she sends those back to me

Those wasp words

Ceasing to die after they've stung

An abusive lover she is


This poem is about: 
My family



When I say lover, I do not mean romantically.
