Bite the Bullet

Bite the Bullet!

Hey, little boy-man,

Run for your life!

There is pleasure and pain

In the arms of a wife.


Possession you hate -

Obsession is fate -

Reality late -

Good observation.
I like the rhyming rhythm towards the end and the layout.

Another clever one Cynthia. The format is unusual with a clever rhyming pattern, and delivers a good punching ending.

Love it! - actually I think this is, for me, the best of the 'bullet' series, and a great example of how, sometimes, less is more.
Funny and sad simultaneously - great!

Profound messages indeed - that the majority of men can't handle committment or long term relationships! Love the whimsical ending also.

So glad you are on board. x

The more I read it, the more I like it. There are some profound messages in this.

It is pure coincidence that 'obsession' appears here right after Steven's good poem. Normally, for that reason I would remove mine, but not this time since it is a 'themed' poem.
