friday is the new thursday.

due to an "aura" migraine
i am posting late for poetry thursday,
i am also
as finding a poetry reading where i live
would be difficult feat to manage
(to say the very least)


here is an old one
written when i was in a different frame of mind...

you kissed me like a fiend
on your couch of lies-
and i beleived all of your deception
the beautiful untruths
i've grown to despise
one acid kiss and i fall prey-
victim to your whims
puppet in your play
and you call me destructive.

one acid kiss and i fall prey ~ brings back not so nice memories ... really enjoyed this and reminds me of an old poem of mine when i was in a different frame of mind so i think when i post later today, i am going to use you as my inspiration for a poetry thursday prompt a day late : )

thanks ever so much : )

Ew - sorry about the migraine. I used to get those all the time - auras and all.

Jessie said...

ouch. are you feeling better?

old poem or not, like always, your poetry paints pictures that are easily imagined. i especially liked the last line for some reason. subtle, yet strongly said.
