Poisoned lips

In fragrant breath

Glassy eyes

And frozen smiles

And marks

Of sudden death

Of feelings

And of blunt

Expressiveness

The soul

Is passionless

The heart’s

A bloody mess

The angry mind

Is crying out

Into the nothingness

Of selfish deeds

And selfish creeds

On poisoned lips

Craving trips

Of hushed exile

For kisses on

The demon’s smile

What a sweet fake person you are
Always wanting to be the star
You’ve hurt me a lot and brought down my guard
But I swear my revenge will hit you hard

Your innocent looks may do the tricks
But just you wait as the bomb ticks
You’ve always been guilty and I’ll blow you away
My revenge will be sweet and coming someday

Your beautiful face and dazzling smile
Could probably take my breath for a while
But it’s fact that you’ve hurt my pride and dignity
I’ll have my revenge, just wait and see

I know I was always hurting you bad
When I’m around you’ve never been glad
But still I don’t want you to stand on your feet
And my revenge will be very sweet

I’ve done more wrong to you from the top
But what I hate is that you don’t give up
And because of that I’ll make you pay
I’ll have my revenge every bitter way

We both know I’m better than you are
Sorry if I’ve always won the war
But still the same, I’ll make you pay
I’ll have my revenge… but what for, anyway?

Seeing your painfully attractive face
Your beauty, your self, I want to embrace
I’m under your spell and that’s what I hate
‘Cause that’s what makes my revenge come so late

Maybe we’d better stop this stupid game
I’m wild, I know, but you’ve made me tame
Forget my revenge, I know it won’t come
Forgive me for being so stupid and dumb

But still you’re guilty – you just don’t know it at all
You’re guilty of stealing and making me fall
I fell for you and that’s your work of art
And yes, you’re guilty of stealing my heart

*A poem I wrote in high school… probably two decades ago – let’s say, I was 16(?) then and I’m 36 now! 😮 I read a lot of romance novels back then, and based on this, it seems I was probably into the enemies-to-lovers trope! Fortunately, none of this was based on real life. Also, I didn’t have a life at 16. 😂

a calm solemn nod

lips in ephemeral smile

her blade reached his guts

 

 

zenith of your life

accomplished in the shadows

thank you, unknown spy

 

 

midnight shadows dance

swaying to a trance

of mournful peace ’til he appeared

vermillion, crimson, red

a grin inspiring dread

and all the things the shadows feared

A hand held
A shy gaze
A kiss

A love lost
A memory
You miss

Midnight
You lie awake
And reminisce

For all
You have left
Is a wish

To return to
That long-forgotten
Bliss

 

I know
What this is
What you are
And you say
There’s a cure
It won’t scar
But this cure
To the venom
Is a curse
Makes
Things
Worse
So I’ll try
Just a sip
Just a drip
And we’ll see
If it’s worth
The trip

Take a deep breath
And be brave
Sometimes it’s okay
To misbehave

I’m right here
Never far
Not afraid
Of who you are

Because i’ve glimpsed
Behind your slight
Veneer of bitterness
And I saw light

The poisoned apple pie
I’ve tried too many times
The hero of a lie
Who’s done too many crimes

The angel of pretense
Up high on golden wings
Ignoring consequence
The saint of hidden sins

And I feel nothing but
Faith in you destroyed
So speak to me not
This contract’s null and void

Blood boiling
Heart racing
Angry thoughts in my head

In the midst of white
And peaceful black
All I’m seeing is red

One thought of you
And I’m triggered

Bad memories
I’m embittered

Got the fury of
A villain mob
That won’t stop until you’re dead

 

A pledge or two
Broken, like it’s nothing
Over and over
Again, like it’s nothing
Promised deals, unfulfilled
All to serve The Guild

Half-studied verses
Read, like it’s something
Half-hearted sketches
Drawn, like it’s something
Love’s excitement killed
All to serve The Guild

Crafting ceased
Only time for one thing
Plea dismissed
Only tend to one thing
Must strengthen the build
All to serve The Guild

We used to joke around and laugh
Like we were such good friends
Talked about dumb things
And things that were intense
But I’ve noticed you have changed
When you kept avoiding my eyes
Should I have talked to you,
Or would that have been unwise?

You used to be quite frank
Used to communicate
I wonder, did I do
Something that you hate?
Because I’ve noticed you have changed
We don’t talk anymore
Should I have talked to you,
Or have you closed the door?

Weren’t we good friends?
At what point did that end?
I’ve been dealing with so much
Couldn’t see beyond the bend
Didn’t notice you have changed
Until somebody asked
I could have talked to you
But it was too much a task

You’re such a nice person
It must have been my mistake
But I can’t be chasing friendships
When I’m drowning in my lake
I’ve noticed you have changed
But I don’t blame you for a bit
You could have talked to me
But maybe I wasn’t worth it
