Poetry On Odyssey: Little Lies

An ode to toxic people in your life.

Poetry On Odyssey: Little Lies
William Hancock

You huff and puff
You gripe and moan
Because you just don't wanna be alone.

Your petty posts after I answer your outcries
Make me want to lay down and cry.

I help and help but to much avail
You just a post a passive agressive wail.
Every time you do this it makes me want to go away and set sail.

Knowledge is given and opinons shared
But all you want to ask me is what you should wear.
You crush on others, but little do you know, your crushing yourself.

You could care less about what I say, but you sit there and tell me to not go away.
I don't know if it's healthy to help or even say,
I feel like you're toxic in your own way.

You get mad when someones tells you something you don't want to hear,
But you sit and preach about how you're the only real person here.

I wrote this to relieve stress and fury
So don't get mad or in a tizzy.
But don't go post and say it's because "I'm too busy."

I hope you can fix yourself and get stuff straight...
But I'm not going to sit and be your punching bag while I wait.
