Flattered Grey & Short Acrostics: Poem

1. A quick poem about self image, and the frustration of looking at your reflection and seeing something you despise.
2. Just a couple of short acrostics about emotions we're all familiar with.

Flattered Grey

This childish man he stares at me,
And I right back at him,
The monster in the looking glass,
Brings ugly from within.

A crows beak, a swollen cheek,
Two eyes of sunken shame,
They tell me blue, But flattered grey,
Is still grey all the same.

The chest, a chest, there’s nothing here,
To make an eye look back,
A shirtless mess, with softened mass,
Taunts me to attack.

And that I do, in such a way,
Destructive held in mind,
Punish one, then parallel,
Is done for we, a kind.

Acrostic: Guilt

Guided by my hurting,
Unable to make it end,
I pray to anyone who would,
Listen to my sorrow,
Take it, or me, away.

Acrostic: Love

Lost in myself and her,
Of lust and passion a chance
Virgin lips on both accounts,
Euphoric in our dance.
