Candy Coated Nightmare Love


Candy Coated Nightmare Love


Let me elucidate on the concepts of my heart

Let me transmit to you the messages that my head’s been sending to the lockbox

Have sympathy, I am not afraid of being alone anymore, rather only afraid of losing the one I want to be alone with.

Manumit your affections to me by caressing my cheek

You’re candy to my sugar deprived senses

How is it that I went on before without knowing this drug>

How do I go on living having it and losing it?

Heart swells like a balloon filling with water

Mind is driftwood down the streams of guilt and worry

Take my lifeboat and save yourself

For I will drown in unquenchable thirst forever

Don’t fall into my candy coated abyss

For you will surely crash

It isn’t safe for you near my waves

I’m too intensely high for you to see me

You’ll never catch my true self until you prove you can swim.

    A fine write Virago. The pic matches too. It seems to me like you're in love, yet don't want anyone to be TOO near you.
    Being in love (what would I know of it? I keep swooning. lol) lifts you to a higher plane.

      Thanks Orchidee! Unfortunately yes, I am the fall hard and fast kind of woman. This poem is about me falling in love with the idea of this man; wanting his affections, but warning him that I can be intense. Warning him that if he jumps into the "water" with me, he must be able to swim. Thanks for commenting!

      Once the love is there and you are together the love will get stronger and bind you together more firmly.
