This is My Love

by Jenecis


I'm suffocating you, I know,

I'm just so afraid to let you go.

-

The touch of you makes me alive,

So how could you think, I will survive?

-

With no you, within my arms,

Suddenly exposed at the cruel world's harms.

-

The light is blinding, sharp and clear,

It is only you that I want here.

-

I live for your breath alone, your touch,

Can't you see that I love you this much?

-

How could you expect me to settle for less?

When you exist, who wants second best?

-

I desire only you, my prince, my crow,

It is thoughts of you that keeps me on the go.

-

Alas what is wrong, my sweet sweet dear?

Your pupils dilate, eyes clouding with fear.

-

Why are you gasping for breath, for that air?

When I am here, am I not just as fair?

-

Fairer than I? Is that what you said!

I implore the name of the other woman in your bed!

-

So I can track her down, hunt that whore!

And make her pay, perhaps even more!

-

Please don't lie to me, I know you must love another,

For why are you now repulsed by me as your lover!

-

My hand is warm wrapped around your torso,

This never-ending embrace shows my love and even more so.

-

But why do you struggle and squirm away?

You need a life of you own, did you say?

-

But, my darling, I do not understand,

Apart from us, life is a wasteland.

-

The only thing we need is each other,

For without this union, we will suffer.

-

We don't need others, they are pollution.

But have no fear, I have the perfect solution.

-

To keep us from never being apart,

I shall drive this dagger through our heart.

-

If I can't have you, no one ever will.

So stop fighting, and keep Goddamn still.

-

Smile, my dear, as we greet our mortal fall,

For Death is the fairest bride of all.


I originally intended to write a poem about what is it like being in love and being afraid to lose it, but then my muse compelled to make it stronger, and before I knew it, a new poem with a new life sprawled across the computer screen. Written in one setting, the words seemed to have a mind of their own as they triggered one after the other. Darker than I had intended. Sinister.
