I've been very upset lately and i felt the sudden urge to write poetry again...which I haven't had since I was 15. It might totally suck but it just poured out of me. I didn't edit it at all. This is raw - from my heart and gut and soul.

ONE

I AM ONE
ONE PERSON
ONE WOMAN
ONE WIFE
ONE MOTHER
ONE NOTHING

THE PERSON IS LOST AND HOPELESS
THE WOMAN IS POWERLESS
THE WIFE IS USELESS AND INADEQUATE
THE MOTHER IS MISGUIDED
THE NOTHING IS.AND THAT IS ALL

PAIN IS MY MANTRA
IM A SLAVE TO MY MANTRA
I WORK FOR THE PAIN
I WORK TOWARDS THE PAIN
PAIN...MY ONE TRUE LOVE....PAIN
ITS ALL I KNOW AND ALL ILL EVER BE

BEWARE OF THE ONE
IT WILL EAT YOU.CONSUME YOU...BECOME YOU

LIFE, DEATH, LOVE, HATE, PAIN, PLEASURE, EVERYTHING, NOTHING

THEY ARE ONEAS AM I

YOU'VE BEEN FOREWARNED

BEWARE OF THE ONE
