Twist Me, Beat Me & Make it Hurt: Who Cares!

Posted in Wikinut>Writing>Poetry

There are those of us that have learned to give, it is a curse at times. As those that we love and those we just might like, take all you got, tie it up and cut it with a knife. It goes, it flows and finally soils, as life goes on.

Do You Care

Are you the person that everyone wants, when they need you but, the hell with you, when you need them. Do they even see that you are hurting or do they not even care? I have always had a need and want to give to others but, it does cost you and in the end, does it really matter what you did.

Who Cares!

That I am here, that I be.

I sit there, I cry, do you see.

I am hurting inside, why will you not see.

I sit.

I fight.

I want to quit!

I cry with joy when you need me,

then I cry, when you don't.

The need for me, gets less and less.

Why can you not see,

My life is a mess.

Why must it be,

As I sit there and cry,

inside I should say.

You ignore me,

as these tears hold onto me,

as if I am your slave,

you are part of that chain,

but, you say "Okay."

They keep taking!

Taking, damn it!

Is what seems to come my way.

Did I say taking?

Each slice of that knife,

is there for 'me' to be taking.

"It's okay.", they all say.

If we just use you,

as it is made that way.

Jealousy, hate, anger, hate!

Did I say hate twice,

what can I say.

We feel what we see.

I keep hearing,

I am busy.

You owe me.

I want.

I need.

You did what?

Back in 83!

You are mad, why put that on me.

I want to say,

"I wonder why you laid it once again, my way."

They say, "who cares.",

"Who are you by the way?".

I sit here.

I cry.

Do you even care to hear.

That life for me,

is not going very well.

"That is okay.", you say.

Then,

"What did you say?",

"Oh, let me tell you what happened to me."

I sit there and listen,

I keep taking their pain.

There I sit.

Trying to be heard, then they say,

"Oh there's another call, I must go away.".

Another call comes my way,

I pick up the phone.

Yes I know I owe.

I dread the day, they take it all away.

It is just a house, who cares they say,

life will go on and sure it may.

Every sound I hear calls it closer,

With each tick of a clock.

I seem to keep running,

and running,

around this damn ass clock!

The phone rings,

do you need another thing, once again,

from me!

Take it all!

Screw what you see!

I am just there, for you,

the hell with me.

Do you hear what I see?

What sound?

There I sit, it is quiet and I want to quit!

Did I hear?

"We need you, do not quit!".

But no, it seems,

I am always getting the short end,

of that big ass fucking stick.

Then it was said:

No, I do see you,

please know I do.

I have not left you,

I hear what you see and I have always knew it within me.

Why not say something to me?

I did call.

You did not answer.

Yes it had taken me awhile,

but I am here now.

I am begging you to answer!

As I faintly hear their whispers,

as I count each feet,

as I go down, even deeper.

Then they see.

I lay, I am quiet, I quit.

That seems to be life...

Some!

Damn!

Ass!

Shit!

I have written two other poems in my life, they are more on the brighter side of life...

Judy, I answered all my other messages before I came back to yours. I don't think I am an enabler, I just think I am like a lot of people, I trust. I trust you will treat me with respect, as I do you, if you don't do that then, you are out of my life. This one (so called) friend I kind of mentioned in my poem, is no longer in my life, once again. After 6 years I had taken her call, she apologized and asked if we could start over, as she has missed me. I do believe in turning the other cheek and what she did was not as bad, as she thinks she did, to me that is. Within a few weeks, it seems as if we converted back to, her woes, her life, her kids, her husband, me, me, me and now she is not in my life. I do not mind helping people but, I learned a 'long' time ago, not to enable bad behavior. This poem is far more than what this one person did or the hundreds before, it is just about life, the struggles we all go through. The bills pile up, the economy is still sinking and I do not see it getting any better. We as a country are so angry right now, the divide that Mr. Obama has decided to use to get re-elected is killing us all, one heart at a time. Yes my friend, this poem was so much more than the likes of just one. Thank you for your sound advice and as always, thank you for stopping by.:)

Mark, writing this was such a good way for me to let things go. I know most folks might think this is all about my dad and me but, it is not even. He is so out of my life and (really!) I am okay with it all. I just used the same photo as it seemed to fit. I think this fits a lot of people right now around my country, we are angry, we are hurting and it only seems to be on line, to get worse. I am not saying we have given up but, we are just so damn tired of fighting. My friend, I am working on letting it all go. As always, thank you for stopping by.:)

I agree Siva and this poem represents 'all' that struggle, I use me, as I use my own pictures and also, I too am no different than any other, I too hurt and get hurt. I feel some times people get me wrong. Like when I write about my life, living with a drunk father and watching your mother, siblings and you get beaten, I write for 'all' of us that have lived that life, I do not just do it for me, I never have. I do not need anyone to feel sorry for me, I have been over that part of my life for decades. Also, this is just what a lot of us are feeling right now, my family, neighbors and my countrymen. We want to make it, we want to work and yet we see so many hurting, including us. We did not ask for this but, we have to live with it. As slowly everything is being taken from us, one piece at a time and we can not stop it. It is getting so tiresome to see the division here in my country, we are better than this. This poem is so many things and for so many people, just remember those that stand next to you, before they too lay their quit, never to awake, is all I was trying to portray. As always, thank you for stopping by.:)

I know this Siva and I do carry on, I have all my life. I know the language might be a bit harsh but, at times I think it is warranted. This poem is not about just me, it is about so may of us Americans that have been shoveled a bunch of BS from so many politicians over the decades, only for us to take the hit in the end, while they go off and have fund raising dinners at 40,000 a plate, more than most Americans make in one year, might I add. I mean, how can either side reason this to us Americans that have been dumped on so harshly over these last few years. Do you know that most folks like us have gone down almost half in salary since 2008 and now, how are we suppose to keep things going when we are hit like this and by the way, not by our own doing. You know Siva, there has to be a middle ground on things, we can not keep going to the far left nor the far right, we must come together. Yet, I see my country so filled with hate and anger, as the politicians pin us against each other. Thanks Mr. Obama, you have divided us, are you happy now. Just sickening. I will keep your smiling face in mind when I fill overwhelmed again. Thank you for stopping by.:)

Oh Denise, everything you write not only touches my heart, it also reaches my soul.!
I have found writing about the things that have shaped my life not only is theraputic, but also it's like unburdening yourself, and it helps you to cope with situations.
I think like me, you have suffered a lot of pain in your life, physically and emotionally, and i understand your need to share it.
I admire your strength and courage, and I am so pleased that you have found the happiness you deserve with a good marriage, a beautiful daughter and a lovely grandson. Your love and loyalty for your brother Billy shine through you other writing too. you are a good woman, and this star is so well earned. x

Awww Carol, what kind words you have bestowed on me, I don't think I am worthy of all your accolades but, I thank you for giving them to me. I know I have written about my past here at wikinut but, this poem is actually about the state of affairs my country is in and how we are (for the most part) feeling we have gave for not. 'Both" Sides of the aisle in our government is useless and here we sit watching our country go in the toilet, as we slowly keep losing everything we have worked for and they keep peddling us BS, just so as they can keep their jobs, who cares what is good for us. I have so much anger inside of me, as I see businesses closing up, jobs being lost (yes the hubby was unemployed for months last year/ no unemployment benfits) houses being foreclosed on and my hubby and I (apparently) are also going through the day by day, wait and see if we keep our home or not, it is just too much! We are so underwater with our home, it will take us 10 years to even get back any equity we have put in this home (maybe) but, it is not just us, it is so many millions. Yet I heard our Pres. say the other day, we are doing fine, really?!?! Sad thing is, so many millions believe in his BS, it is just mind boggling. If you tried something and it has made things worse, would you not think of a better way to go about it or better yet, step aside and allow others to do the job you are apparently failing at. I do not want you to think I am saying we have it the worst, as I know so many others have it worse off than we do but, that does not erase the game that is being played on us Americans. As always, thank you for stopping by.:)

My dear Denise O,
It's said poetry is at its best when it comes straight from heart or from an experience. In this poem it has both the qualifications and is therefore Superb. The message and your anguish comes through clearly. I commend you for that.
Since time immemorial every man has exploited the other whenever possible. The more you give the more the others take and ask for.
We have to say enough is enough and firmly say no when others cross a certain point. Otherwise one cannot survive. Charity begins with our own self. If one is not kind to himself, who else will be?
Your poems always draw the reader in and the distance between the poet and reader gets reduced with each line. No wonder the stars love you and come to you regularly. Bravo.
Having said that, the structure of the poem baffled me. Will the purists even of modern poetry approve single word lines? Just a penny for your thoughts.

GV, I have never understood poetry at all, until I started to write for wikinut and yet, I honestly can say, I still do not really understand it all. I was once told, 'try poetry, you do not have to go by any guide lines, it is more like art (as in painting, sculptures), what feels good, do it.'. I will never put my self in the purist camp as I have never been taught how to write poetry. The structure of the poem is more or less set this way, as to be able to add my photos the way I wanted them laid out, really nothing more. I am quite sure many so called experts of poetry would laugh at my work and think what smut but, if an artist is able to get across what he/she feels and to many others, it is still called art and in my case, it is still called poetry. My dear friend, I have written three poems in my life, just three. The one for Mark's poetry challenge and I did this one because I wanted to get out of my comfort zone. My second was my little ditty (my favorite by far!) about my grandson and his charity work at the hospital this last Christmas and then this one. By no means am I going to say I know what is needed or not needed to fit my poem into any category a purist would put up. Even after saying that, As with this page and the others I have written (I mean all of my pages) I take each article as if it is a pile of clay and as I add to them, take somethings away and then tinker away, I am slowly molding that clay into the sculpture I have envisioned. Now as far as being taken advantage of, I agree 100%. This was my so called 'independence day' of, I see what you are doing and now I must stop, for my own sake and yes, I am an important person, that deserves better than what I have put up with over the years. It really is bitter sweet though, as I have had to let some people go out of my life but yet, I have been finding more peace within myself. To me, this can only help those that are around me and who actually give as much as they take, as they get a better me. So in the end, if this poem is not good enough for the purist, so be it, I have gained so much more by just writing it. Have a blessed day. As always, thank you for stopping by.:)

Dear Denise, I think most of us go through similar emotional state at some point or other in our daily lives! But how many of us can express our selves or pour out the feelings (rather the heart) the way way you did in this touching and thought provoking poem! Hats Off! God bless!

So iron lady, as always am late but the best part is that at last I am here to hear what you say and to see what you want to show and sincerely its my pleasure to have done so.......

Humza 1 :Hey what am I listening here, somebody said that they are sad,
Humza * :no way they shouldnt be,
H 1 : but they are
H*: if you are here and still they are sad then you are a waste
H 1: yes you sound right to me, that means am a looser, I cant cheer that person up, OH NO
H * : huh u waste, buck up and make that person happy, go get lost
H 1 : I hope so that I succeed :(

Oh densie you just saw how I was humiliated by H *, now my respect is in your hands, please cheer up and smile and stay happy like this forever, please.................... :/

My friend, you always put a big smile on my face. I am doing fine, I really am. This was just a day after I watched a documentary on the plight that most of us Americans are going through and this came out. How can I be sad when I have friends like you. Thank you for all your kind words and yes, I know you hear what I see. As always, thank you for stopping by.:)

This is so dark and depressing, but we have all had these feelings at one time or another, of pain and feeling used and unappreciated.

Allison, at times yes we all do feel this way. Good thing is though, it was just a fleeting moment in time. Thank you for stopping by.:)
