Untitled, Poetry 2020 Longlist

Resentment


Seeping through smoothly

A lining of bitterness

Couched in saccharine


Brimming to surface

Wheezing and gasping for breath

Old not forgotten


The constant shadow

Staining every happiness

Brimming and swirling


Pricey antidote

Simple sounds and sentences

Impossible Pride


Envy gurgles forth

Gripping in a wild frenzy

The raw wound festers
