Graffiti

In a fit of fury she scribbled
                          MEANIE
       then took a step back to admire her work

blurred vision on account of tears
             maybe made her reconsider those words

she ain't good enough for even that
 I heard her mumble under her breath
       
 Gone was MEANIE
                 
and 
         
in it's place

                 
    Ugly Whore!
   
now adorned the bathroom door

  5. When the heat of the moment meets opportunity I suppose it is better to face the property damage than harm to another, still. Nice take on the prompt, thanks for joining us.

  8. Full of emotion, and it shows the character's sadness for herself. That's what I see, and there's a lot of fears in this. Very nice.

  10. What we really think and feel has to come out sometime.

    PS should "adored" be "adorned" in the last line?

  11. Hurt feelings and impulse collide for result in the text of this piece. Your form and flow carry the message with strength.
