I don't know much about poems but I read one in my high school english textbook called A poison tree. Is that considered as a "dark" poem?

I come here to muse.
See when things bother me I write about it. It’s not always a poem.
Also since I can’t say what I would really like to say. I put it here in words of expression.

For example:

Be careful of those you pony up with.
Shallowness lacks depth perception.
Hindsight will always come into focus.
A media darling now.
A pariah after the gossip exchanges.
“Time to let the messages taper off.
Disappear into the horizon. Back to old habits once again.”

Not a poem but a truth in words for once. Or damn near it. The opening where it says “they say I’m wrong” is an answer to those who have challenged my political views and beliefs. I simply do not align to a lot of LGBTQ politics. Simply no one has lived the life I have to impose their opinions and indoctrination’s on me. I don’t do it to others I simply ask it not be done to me. I will only handle so much before I snap.

The rest is about finances, drowning in debt, disagreeing with those who do drugs(don’t like folks who do it. When a junkie breaks into your home and steals you lose a lot of faith in humanity. You can support em all ya like. I don’t support folks who hurt others), and walking away from my mortgage.
Furthermore after the house was broken into it no longer felt like a home. The only place I ever felt safe I no longer feel safe because some loser had to get his high.
Say what you will. You haven’t lived my life. I understand addiction is a problem. But do not deny my anger and invalidate my feelings.


It’s near bed time.
Woeful b sides from Sheryl Crow’s first album fill the living room with regret.
They tell me I’m wrong.
Apply opinions and indoctrination without understanding.
No one has lived this life and few have ever tried to understand.
I relish the thoughts of walking away from that land that overlooks a billion years of history.
How else can I live?
My life at the hands of investors, bankers, and taxes.
It taxed my mind to the breaking point.
The property desecrated by a drug addict I had never wronged or known.
The society was on his side.
As I relish the thoughts.
I have big ambitions still.
I don’t know where I’m going, I don’t know what I’m going.
The financial burden is tightening around my neck.
Family and friends ask “have you lost weight?”
I dare not speak the truth.
I keep silent, keep it all in, and suffer.
Albeit once in a while I put in words for the world to see.
No one says anything. No one asks about it.
I carry on. I have lots to do.
Understand we all suffer.
No one person’s
feelings, race, religion, sexuality, identity, or anything override another’s.
At least in my world it doesn’t.
You don’t know what I’ve lived.

The Fakes

People are always gonna smile in your face.
Fake their pace to win the race.
Backhanded comments abound and always around.
Personal gain by using and abusing you to gain admiration of others.
But when you bare your teeth in sheer anger.
They recoil at their foils.
As if they had done nothing wrong.
They select their posse and get real bossy.
They flaunt their cock of the walk and skulk about like clowns in town.
I know them plenty and I won’t vanish into the banishment.

Disappear into the horizon. Back to old habits once again.”
