Poetry Thursday "Among us"

I created this mug and plate for a fellow as a shower gift!
My poem for poetry Thursday only skims the surface of an issue dear to my heart. In the near future I will delve into the havoc it causes families!
There was no time to participate in the guerilla poetry this week. Although I think it could be a grand idea, with more time and thought behind it!
Among Us
Concealed in daily living
Unnoticed by the naked eye
Sprinkled amongst friends
Family and associates
Blemished personality
Quiet, unassuming
Passive aggressive
Introverted, inconspicuous
Devotion masks obsession
Fascination kindles adoration
Gifts mask bribery
Peace embodies gloom
Obstinacy tempts damnation
Afflicted agitation
Rouses rants, rages
And Retribution
Undiagnosed
Mental illness
Prevails

By the way, Maya Angelou and Emerson are two of my favorite poets of all time...I wrote a poem about Maya on my treehouse blog in her honor...I shall keep checking in to see what's the latest, greatest. I'm enjoying the poetry thursday community a lot.
