Love Me Not


Emptiness isn't kind to those who devour it
It's like a desperate air that fills the lonely soul
But only for the moment
Until the passion lies within
I toss and turn in my pajamas
Sweating from all of the anxiety
While the windows are open
And the air conditioner is on
Leave me alone you filthy demon
You can't impress me with a flower
My emotions are weeping
And I can't seem to keep quiet
This heart speaks with great integrity
Therefore it never skips a beat when I shed a tear
The cobwebs in the sky have yet to unravel
It's a miracle I'm still alive
In this twisted scene of a dream
Love me not, for I am not
Behold the shadows that break the silence
I'm a wanton woman on the loose
You can think whatever you want about that
A lonely soul lives the life of a lonely soul
I'm only human.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
