Well, I haven't posted anything in a long while. Let's see if I've lost my touch. The prompt from the lovely Katharine is write a poem using the words trip, menace, feline, priority, thief, and tackle. Enjoy.
Out of My Mind
Eyes, mouth, teeth, jaw,
Every feature tripping me up,
Stopping my heart.
I hate that you are a beautiful thief.
Relinquish my affections!
I don't want them to be yours.
I tackle this dilemma everyday.
I want to be wanted.
I want it to be you who wants me.
But I don't,
You cannot be my first priority.
You cannot be the most important thing.
I try to be feline fickle.
Independent of your charm,
Of your eyes, mouth, lips, jaw,
Of your enticing, beautiful danger,
But I cannot hotwire my heart
