Aria Siren


Saccharine


If I could bottle you up
You'd taste like black cherry bubbles
Swished behind peanut butter lips
Sunscreen palms
Sugared with syrupy drips
You're delicious
But only for the first few sips
Close your eyes
Here comes the eclipse
And my mouth reeks
With unease
The pollen you leave
Poisons my bees
And your sunrise kingdom
Just isn't for me
Your porcelin veneers
Come with a fee
You ask me to peel off my skin
Because it covers parts you can't see
You want to crawl around in my darkness
And discuss it over biscuts and tea
And the truth is I'm stranded
Swimming in my sanguine sea
Casting eyes high, at the stormy sky
Waiting for someone to see
Me

but not you

    In my head this seems to have similarities with your previoys poem. Another entity; possiblny a human person, possibly not (although I like to think it is) . That last poem put through my interpretive magle machine was about the process of somone close bringing the narrator down and this one excites me in that it fits as a continuation of affairs, except that it is explaining how the narrator hides the troubles and woes they have and yearns for some relief but also does not want the close person to know how much they are damaging them.

    Of course, these people only become close because they are very nice people who mean well (who have a 'delicious' personality) but things can happen in life that can shatter that and it has a big effect on the close circle.

    I know it's just my interpretation but I think these two poems really work swimmingly together.

    Ace.

    Thank you for putting up with my vain imaginings. (Report) Reply
