What You Think, Not Reality

What do you think I am?
A baby or a ham?
What do you see in me?
Do you see my father Lee?
Towards me what do you feel?
Do you feel nothing like an eel?
Forwards or backwards, left or right
Do you seriously think good-bye will do tonight?
After all you did?
Do you think I can cover it with a lid?
After you broke my heart?
Do you expect me to wheel it away like a cart?
Do you think I am that shallow?
Do you think I would go that low?
Or are you just stupid?
Or think it was a temporary arrow from Cupid?
What do you think I am?
A sacrificial lamb?
I thought I could trust you
But it turns out you’re a playboy for true
Hurt me now or hurt me later
I will never again cater
To your will
No matter how big the bill

Great poem! I just felt that sometimes the rhyming sounded a little weird; if you feel that you constantly have to change the words around to fit the rhyme, then don't worry about rhyming. I'm sorry for your loss :(

This is very clear in its meaning and the emotion in it is great. I love the fact there questions it leaves the reader suspened yet not really because they are able to get it. its very good although i believe at some points you got a little lost in the rhyme but we all as writers are bound to do that time to time...me a bit too much. but other than that it's a great piece!
