Anima

Swift as lightning
Within confined
She weaves her spell
Into your mind

Sweetly whisp`ring
The siren`s muse
Hear her, see her
You can`t refuse

Her soft caress
You`ve always known
Seek her, take her
To be your own

She won`t leave you
She`s always there
Try to shun her
If you would dare

Tearing into
Your very soul
You must love her
Until you`re whole

    Jung is truly the scholar for poets, not because he wrote poetry (he most definitely did not) but rather he provides the psychological basis for the poems we write. And we can go to his writings for both inspiration and confirmation. I sense both of his gifts in this poem. Anima is a slippery concept in his writing - it almost has too much meaning attached to it. But your poem is sinuous, it insinuates itself into mind and in almost no time at all the anima is activated within, it's part of me like my eyes, my speech, my sense of touch. As your poem concludes, the anima's presence has made me whole.

    This is very good. Ha it's so funny or amusing you and me write about a lot of the same things. Freaky almost!

    You should check out my poem and the comment section that explains it a little better. It's called the night monsters eve it goes hand and glove with this one you have written. Well to an extent anyways. thanks for the good work =)
