About the Poem

This poem is about how love can be a deadly and controlling desire. Love can be something you really want but can't get. It is also about strong attractions.

A Few Visitor Comments

well versed, the poem is a strand of passionate pearls capturing the vast beauty of english poetry.


Quick, occasional deadly glances
captured into realm of unconsciousness
prolonging the loss of speech
Deliberately avoiding brunet eyes
committing an eagerly sin
luring pain ridden hearts to hope
Give away my soul
just to destroy the mind
and lose control of senses
Touch and taste is all a dream
surrounded by dark-filled warmth
wishing a piece be part of I
Want is deep but uncertain
as unconditional, infinite waits
endure, release, continue
to bleed this poisonous desire.
