Anthony Dirk Ray

Rancor Romance

an encrusted blank expression
envelops her face
as she admits
to not loving you anymore

the nights of yelling
of cursing
of disrespect
of hatefulness
from both parties involved
spitting verbal venom
takes its toll

fueled by alcohol
regret and selfishness

feelings of a life squandered
decisions of comfortability
under the guise of love

acrimony supersedes thoughtfulness
bitterness abounds
animosity released
complete antagonism achieved
a loathing unleashed
resentment acknowledged
and acted upon

a wash of relief
overtakes you both
