It is what it is
and it stands as it is.
Not a good fit, not right at this time.
A square peg in a tray of round holes.
Unaccepted, not really appreciated.
A reject in a slushpile.
Edgy and sharp
blood free-flowing from this self-inflicted gash.
Rough and raw
self-induced dry heaving, nothing left to purge.
uncontrollable tears streaming from weary eyes.
No apologies, no offence meant...
It stands as it is,
as do I.
