It Would be OH SO Nice

I wrote this piece in my writer's group a few years ago. I am really feeling it today. Thought I would go ahead and repost...

***written for the draw: Fulsome***

It Would be OH SO Nice

Every time I see your face my stomach turns
My eyes roll and I look away in disgust
That shirt… the way you comb your hair
Makes me want to vomit on your shoes

Every time you open your mouth garbage spews
Rotting flesh and soured milk
I can’t stand the sound of your voice
Your lack of imagination
Your misplaced wit and spoiled integrity
Don’t talk to me

Every time you walk by, I grind my teeth
It takes all that I am to bite my tongue and be civil
To not blurt out extreme malevolence
To look away, smile, and try to think a happy thought
A life without you in it



  1. Damn ... flows well. There's gotta be a story behind the venom of the protagonist, huh?

  2. Wow. That's intense, very raw.

    Sending positive karma your way in hopes of a better day.

  3. Anthony - venom indeed! *shakes it off* whew!

    Jon - Thank you for the well wishes. Tomorrow is always a new day, and it can only get better :-)

  4. Tomara, I get a feeling that that piece was written in refrerence to Jim. could I be right?
