Wishing Ill on People

Really, it’s not that general
Really, it’s mostly specific
for a good reason
with a fine line
between vengeance and spite.
I don’t wish they would die
No, really I want something
more drawn out
like a landscape
with lots of layers
You think you’re done
with the sheep
and then you see
the watching wolves.
Really, like that
but more painful.
