Bad Timings

by End Of Eternity   Jan 18, 2012


Another morning with same headache
Hard to open eyes once again
This place doesn't look like club
Where I went last night to release pain

Handsome guys all around in uniform
Laughing at me as I realize who they are
Lightning struck at that very moment
And I just wanted to run away so far

How & Why were the questions
I asked myself a bit too loud
Just then I was confornted
By a man feeling so proud

He introduced himself as my angel
And whacked my cheeks out
Told me to smile with broken tooth
But don't wish for a scream or shout

Like professional I turned my pocket inside out
As a thought of bribing gave me some hope
He knew I have read between punches, until
All that popped out were rubbers and dope

    I think my immaturity hinders me from fully understanding this poem. I have read the comments and also the poem several time but I from what I can tell, it seems as if you are trying to find a release from this world but instead you are getting abused or perhaps feeling the regret of such releases that you once did. The poem could also be talking about maybe a pass you are trying to run away from, but the memories are constant reminders and also the scars you now carry. The poem, however, was somewhat strong but it really lacked in some areas that would greatly make it more stronger and make it flow a bit easier.

    All in all, though I think the poem is good though I'm still befuddled as to what it means. Still it is nice to see you writing again and I hope you are doing well. I can't wait to see some more poems by you. Great job and keep writing!

    Interesting write and like Sylvia said it could also apply to women.

    He introduced himself as my angel
    And whacked my cheeks out
    Told me to smile with broken tooth
    But don't wish for a scream or shout

    ^^This could also be taken as a sign or a person who is there to turn you on the right path in this case the police!

    Like professional I turned my pocket inside out
    As a thought of bribing gave me some hope
    He knew I have read between punches, until
    All that popped out were rubbers and dope

    ^^haha..this part just made me laugh and this piece is written in such a way it is like watching a scene played out on tv. Liked the read..and keep penning!

    This could apply to women as well. The morning afters bring regrets to many and guilt over the behavior exhibited. These episodes make a person feel less than human, bring the guilt and shame. Well done.
