Fire and Brimstone (Originally Untitled) – Written Sunday 29th June 2009 (Aged 34)

Fire and Brimstone

you left me shaking
as you spat out your words
such damage
such hurt
maybe i am all the things –
that you called me

maybe i am the failure you described
maybe i am in the wrong place
maybe i am obsessed

i find myself looking at you
and there is no feeling
this vile anger you spit
feels quite unrepenting
it is fire and brimstone stuff
it is a day of reckoning
