Schadenfreude/Enjoyment of watching people in pain

Posted by Sleeper Agent. , 20 February 2013 · 336 views

So yeah, in the creative writing club at school today we could write about any of the words on the board (they were at least one person's favourite word) and Schadenfreude (Sorry German people, but I have no special keyboard to make it look more German looking) was there and it means what I said in the title: The enjoyment of watching someone in pain.
 
"She has the glint in her eye you mistake for wholeheartedness.
She isn't here to crush your bones or tear your flesh."
She's waiting for the impending wrath to commit.
It'll sneak up on you from the edges of your mind.
That pain you feel when she watches it happen, it sustains her happiness.
You think it's a sadistic fall through, she describes it as transcendent.
Everywhere there is products of pain in you, she watches, observing.
Smiling with a twisted grin.
When there is a utopic moment, there is no sight of her.
In these moments of light, melancholy fills her soul.
 
Any feedback is appreciated :)

Actually, Schadenfreude is exactly how it's written, no special keyboard needed. ;)

 

Also, I really like your poem, although it seems to be a bit too drastic to actually match the meaning of the word. But good writing. :)

Thanks, it's just one of those words that can't translate to english well, I would guess.

Thanks :)
