Bitter…   [POEM]

words that taste like lemon
bitter every sound
tarting the pallet of my pleasure,
no sweetness to be found

strange and distorted flavor
unfamiliar to my tongue
a dry and robust disdain,
suffocating toward my lungs

an ugly kind of beauty
a seed planted not to grow
the gritty texture of substance
that I would rather never know.

    An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who
    has been conducting a little homework on this. And he in fact bought me dinner simply because I stumbled upon it
    for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this subject here on your website.
