LIFETIME MOVIE by Jeffrey Littrell

in hope of sweet revenge

my hatred I embrace

I’ll lure you close

with tied so sweet

a ribbon made of lace

I’m a train that has derailed

I’m a door that swings unhinged

I stand alone in shadows


in hope of sweet revenge


About digthroughlife

I am a fifty-three year old poet who also writes fiction. I worked twenty-three years for the USPS, though never enthusiastically. I am a member of French Writers Worldwide and have had several poems published in French and Spanish. I hold strong opinions on music, film, and human rights. Some of my influences are Charles Bukowski, Arthur Rimbaud, Dylan Thomas, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Sylvia Plath, W.B Yeats, Bob Marley, William Blake, and Hunter S. Thompson. I'm an avid fan of the New York Yankees, Oakland Raiders, and Indiana Pacers. I like traveling by car. I enjoy seeing rock and alt-country bands in small venues. I hold a black belt in Taekwondo, but no longer spar due to injuries incurred in a motorcycle accident in 2005. I play acoustic guitar. I love Crown Royal whiskey and California Kush. Women are both the bane of my existence and all that sustains me. I believe strongly in the power of love and heartbreak. View all posts by digthroughlife

    I found this poem very strong. It presents itself in a soft tone, but the meaning is clear, and the anger is present but doesn’t scream. Beautiful.

      Thanks so much ! I read your intro on your site and found it very well-written. I do think the best way to find closure from your loss, would be to write. I think it helps us confront the pain and rise above it. I’m sure you will ! Thanks again for checking out my poetry and best wishes to you.

        Thank-you, your words mean a lot to me. I would love it if you could check out my upcoming blogs. And your advice: how long do you think I should wait between posts?

        I’m now following your posts and you can do the same for me if you like. As for me personally, I don’t add something every day. Maybe a couple of times a week. I have some older poems I draw from as well as new stuff. I don’t think I could write one a day that I could really be proud of ! lol I do write everyday, though. Some writers say to keep a piece around and read it a week later and see if you are still happy with it, before you post or submit it for publishing. I’m pretty new to all this, too. I guess you should post as often as you write material you feel is worthy. Good luck and thanks for being a new friend ! 🙂
