Writing Poem


I steal my love away from you
Early in the day
I seal my fate with you
But my heart won't let it stay

Then when evening turns dusk
from day
Passion rising, consuming,
Assuming what I'll say

As when truth ascending
Pending,
But alledging my feelings
All for you

Wayward tongue flickering,
piercing is the bite
My poissoned thoughts burning
Screaming inside of you

Racing, scathing, penned
Between the lines I do
Then releasing, bursting,
All my poem comes through
