if you really want to fuck someone up
make sure you tell them how much you
care about them and how much
you’re thinking about them
every minute of the day
check their feeds on every social media
platform as often as you can
maybe you could get something for the car
so you can check on them hands-free
send them shit they don’t need
and remind them that you really
really love them and that they’re
the center of your universe
it’s a recipe to scramble their brains
eventually they believe it–or you do

Whew. There’s an acidity to this that stings. So well done, Crow.
Thank you. Lots of recipes call for bitter ingredients.
How very… stalker-ish. Lol! Kinda gives me chills, but not sure if that’s a good or bad thing here… 😉
Probably both? It definitely has some anger issues.
while reading this poem for the first time i thought that the persona was cruel, but then i realized that the persona was probably just describing what someone did to him or her. i like the duality of it.
Thank you. I like the ambiguity of it.
That was something that I had not expected.
Is that good or bad?
Love your title! It does have a stalker-ish feel to it but hey, they’re out there and hopefully we don’t cross paths with them and we don’t end up with our brains scrambled!
We can’t avoid meeting or bring them.
Love the title! Oh my….I detect some cynicism in this recipe. Maybe the need for some space?
Former romantics make the best cynics. 😀
I like this. It does not have to deny the fact that romance is a thing but just shows that it can be distorted or we can be distorted into believing that we are in love with someone.
A sad and torturous process for both involved when one cannot let go. Didn’t expect that last line…wow.
Thank you! I guess we can all use a little non attachment.
Great piece Crow
Thank you, Sheldon. 👍
Words and feathers crow
The must be some way out of here
Said the crow to the queen
Feathers have caught my mind
I got some relief
Just so you know
That I know that you know
As always Sheldon
Thank you my friend. Happy holidays to you!
