I’m being bullied

I have to leave!

These people are mean

There is no reprieve

.

Oh but wait,

Before I do,

Let me rant and

vomit word stew

.

Let me bitch and moan

About the unkind

To gain whatever solaces

I can find

.

And after my ridiculously

dramatic parting

I’ll return a week later

And then be starting

.

To vomit up

Lots more moaning and hatred

Because it’s actually me

who’s completely addicted

.

The truth is that those

‘bullies’ I called out?

They were a mirror

for my most bitter pout

.

I’m defensive, I’m angry

I’m hateful too

So don’t dare talk compassion

Or I’ll soon attack you

.

Don’t dare talk about anything

I can’t comprehend

My ego can’t stand it

So I ridicule to defend

.

My ignorance with

a truly shitty attitude

Yes that’s right

I’ll be seriously rude

.

I don’t care if I’m

hurting you

Because I’M the victim

Remember that news?

.

Oh you forgot

Well let me remind

It’s me that’s suffered

From the bullies online

**********

I wasn’t going to post the poem you just read…it was more of an outlet for emotion last night.

But I thought it may be interesting for you to see part of my process! Because I’m all about sharing 😉

Sometimes I will roll off a rant like this one with ease and then later return (today) to work the concept and emotion into a better poem. A less direct and angry poem 😅

This is the rework;

Let me know your thoughts! 👌🕊️🤍✨

———————————

I sometimes completely forget how many ways something can be interpreted! The opening line of this is not from a personal perspective.

It’s the narcissist ‘victim’ crying that she is being bullied, whilst actually being the bully herself….

Just want to add this before I reply to comments! 🤍🕊️✨🙏

    Ooho congrats on top story!!! loved your thoughts.

    Great poem, and sorry to hear people issues have been bugging you. Watching Dr Ramani videos on youtube about narcissism, BPD, and ASD on def helped me understand where angry people are coming from better. (and understand I do some of these behaviors myself too) Its great as writers we can channel some of our angst into this art form of ours.

    Kayleigh - I've been very much away and you have been very much productive. This one happened to catch my eye today and I wanted to at least take a moment to say: This is absolutely perfect. This needs to be said - and so many of these """"""""""""victims""""""""""""" (feminine-cosmic-energy/manipulation-based bullies) need to hear this. Heading over to read your polished version now, but I just wanted to say how much I love your raw/unfiltered version, and here's one reader/fan of yours who is very glad you posted it. Outstanding work and I love every syllable.

    Okay, I understand... Excellent TS!

    I can relate. Thanks for sharing. This was me💝👇read my story https://vocal.media/motivation/triumph-over-abuse

  • Rachel Deeming5 months ago

    I read this days ago and never commented. Probably interrupted by life. I like this one more than "Charcuterie". I like the bite of this and its directness, powered by the rhyme. It has certainly prompted a lot of discussion! Congrats on TS!

  • Joe Patterson5 months ago

    It’s great that you did post it because it needed to be heard.

  • Dana Crandell5 months ago

    I enjoyed both versions, though I understand why you felt the need to refine it. Once in a while we need to rant, and this is a good one!

  • L.C. Schäfer5 months ago

    I suspect a narc has less self awareness than this 😁 But I like it, every line bites 😁

  • The Dani Writer5 months ago

    I just finished reading 'Charcuterie Heart' and appreciate your sharing this raw version as a view into process. You're very brave as I don't think I could share my unedited work, but hey... there's plenty of writing journey ahead, so you never know... Thank you for sharing!

  • Cathy holmes5 months ago
