No One Comes To Leave Me With Tight Jaws

You didn't come to just visit!
Did you?
You came specifically to kill my joy.
I felt it when you began to assess,
With probing eyes.
As if to inspect.

I noticed you becoming annoyed,
When you said to me just last week...
My smile offended you.
And suspiciously I extended a welcome,
For you to come to my home.
And together we would sit and chat.
But you had more on your mind than that.

You didn't come to just visit!
Did you?
You came specifically to kill my joy.
And when you left...
So happy I was to have stored some happiness,
Frozen in my 'frig' to quickly thaw!

Oh no.
No one comes to leave me with tight jaws.
Or come to dump their junk to funk me.
I'll funk alone in my home if I wish,
With no need for assistance.

What a bright wisdom expressed here. Fantastic thought to have some happiness in the fridge always ready to thaw. Some people do have personality problems If they try to hurt us, we can just put up our emotional wall and pity them for their personality problem Excellent Poetry, Lawrence
