Desserts is Stressed spelt backwards

by willowdot21

Look at those cushions, they are not straight. The dust on this coffee table is inches thick. Clean it up now you lazy bitch you know mess is something I hate.

Do it now, go, move you make me feel sick.

Don’t stand there staring as if you were thick.

The kids have wrecked the bathroom,  move your arse and sort them now. I don’t give a damn about your aching head.

Where is my dinner I have been at work all day, have  you even heard a  word I have said.

What have you been doing, out with friends all day, go on, what nothing to say. A man slaves away at work it is your job to keep  house and not shirk. Look at you, you are not the girl I married she was bright and happy and full of life , such a sexy sight.

Where is my blue shirt and there is a hole in my socks , look at you, your going grey where are those flaxen locks. I’ll be late tonight don’t wait up , why, I going out for a beer,  dear!

BANG! Where’s the cereal Mum, where’s the milk where’s my homework where’s my new scarf of silk.

Take your lunch take your bus fares there’s your homework on the stairs. I have no idea where your scarf is get a move on your bus goes in five  minutes and a half!

BANG! Thank God they’ve gone peace at last , Lets just take a few minutes and hope this throbbing headache will pass. Put washing out to dry , OH! no that’s his best shirt he’ll be mad .

I had enough this is just too much. Sod the washing sod the shopping sod the house I’m going clothes shopping. New shoes new dress new car? I am off now and I’ll go far. I teach him to call me a lazy bitch . No more cooking  no more cleaning the hoover I can ditch! This worm has finally turned I have taken too much the old life I will just burn.

BANG the house shakes I leave for the last time I have had enough I going to live for me, is that such a crime . The kids are older I’ll write them in time they know I love them they know they are mine. I can’t stay with their father he is an ignorant swine.

  1. Very strong and true poem, i like it very much

  2. Thanks Harry it was one of my earlier poems. I wanted to try and put across how tied up women can feel sometimes! xxx

  3. A good portrayal of how life can be for some women.

    I feel blessed to never have been in such a sad situation.

    • Yes life can be extremely difficult for some women. I am pleased to hear that you are lucky and have not had to experience this situation. Long may it stay that way. xxx

  4. The picture is almost same in every house hold where Husband takes credit for all good things and blames the wife for all the mess.There are very few people who really appreciate a woman’s contributions to the family. The Poem depicts a strong and true feeling of a woman who wants to flee from the family and live the life of respect.

  5. I am so glad to see that the message has come through loud and clear!!

If you enjoyed the poem. please leave a comment.
