wasabi green...WBC #6
who but a fool maiden
would dance in your dreams
allow herself to be manipulated
a puppet on a string
your pseudo-calm surface
is a sly mean disguise
like a clown's wicked smile
hiding murder in his eyes
wasabi green is the faded color
of purple and blue
while changing from a prince
to a monster like you
your game was to fly
the experimental aircraft
but it wastes in the hanger
as your grown children laugh
words can cause bruises
that reach deep inside
on your knees beg for mercy
for tears they have cried
Author's Notes:
a sad but true story of a man who tried to control his wife and children through verbal abuse.  He lost everything...his friends, his family but worst of all he doesnt know how to change.  He still thinks everyone else is wrong.
thanks Pamela, yes it still needs some work.  I like your suggestions.

I understand this all too well:

I live in an apartment building and for too long I had to listen to the man upstairs scream at his family - wife, children, grand-children no one was safe from his trinity, day after day; I cannot understand accepting such behavior; I am just glad they have a moved away.

heart breaking

Very sad, but so true every day. Greatly illustrated LJ, well written and beautifully executed.

I'm not too sure I really understand this special poem; I'm glad you explained it.  You really used the words well.  This is a poem I need to read again and again.  That's a good thing.  It draws the attention.  Thanks for contributing such a fine gift to my word bank! --David

A very interesting interpretation of a true event. Nice work, Ljo.
