A limbless puppet of destiny

My aroma of failure nauseates me

I blame my closest for my miseries

Only a little less than I blame myself.


A doormat that let life walk all over me

fallen into an unlit cavity with algae green walls

Nitpicking through my-story with an cleaver

where did I go wrong?


Written for OctPoWriMo Day 5 which started off with the prompt ‘denied’. The poem is not autobiographical but probably reflects moments when I am feeling rejected or been rejected.
