Frustration | Poems that Suck

I'm sitting here reading
other poets' lines about
heartbreak.
I'm appalled,
exasperated,
frustrated.

What is this need to
make everything whimsical?
'Heart break is like 
a wilting flower, 
delicate in its pain.'

No it's fucking not.
Heartbreak is like a fucking
shotgun blast to your abdomen
that sprays your guts on the floor,
leaving you to bleed out 
for days, 
weeks, 
months,
years.
