Poem of the Day: “Taunted and tainted” by Kaitlyn Frazier, Frequent Contributor & Poet of the Week

Songs of Eretz Poetry Review is pleased to present “Taunted and tainted” by Kaitlyn Frazier, a Songs of Eretz Frequent Contributor and this week's Poet of the Week. A biography of Ms. Frazier may be found under our “About Our Editor & Frequent Contributors” heading.

Taunted and tainted
Kaitlyn Frazier

Taunted and tainted
I hasten away
Bested and wretched
I rush from the fray.

Honed in on and caged
I was led astray
Young and yet aged
I can’t find my way.

Pining bouts of grief
Allow no relief
Oftentimes I weep
Farewell to sweet sleep.

Forever I’ll rue the day
He chanced by my way.


Poet's Notes: Obviously this is a breakup poem, but I hate sappiness just as much as the next person, so I thought it wise to keep it short and sweet. Life changes so swiftly that I can’t even seem to remember who this was about.
