"The Bane of His Existence" or "The Volcano"

Its appearance is that of a blister-
a blemish on his perfect life.
Burning of the surrounding areas stir
him to the breaking point.

A sea of white erupts at once.
Disgust to the eye and unbearable pain
follow as he finally smashes it blunt

in an explosion of blood-it was necessary, he would claim. 
This ugly bane of his existence
turned black and red since.
Once more he endures the crime
of extracting the ruby fluid from his own head.
But it was about time

that he reclaimed his countenance
from this malignant antagonist.
The one most feared by the average teen--
the pimple, the zit-do you know what I mean?
