flames licking my neck

Torn between your heaven and my hell,
Or is it your hell,
And heaven doesn’t exist for strangers like us.Strangers…
Is that what we are now?
Despite what we’ve shared, the love, the anger and hate,
The times you fucked me in the car, the couch, or any place that wasn’t a bed,
Because that was safe, warm and inviting and loving,
Or as you like to say, boring and overrated.
How can I be torn over someone like you,
After I put in into words, the way you loved me,
How can I miss this?
Maybe that’s why these flames burn hotter than most,
Hot around my neck, closing in so you’re all I can breath
Because it’s wrong and evil and devils,
A hell in its own right,
And I can’t tell the difference.
Twisted love in all its forms,
A heaven and hell,
Torn between the two,
I fall and fall and fall,
Never bothering to pick myself up after the damage,
Never bothering to stop myself from repeating the sins over and over again…

    Very good poem. Like always

    Did you write a poem titled, “Hecate’s Curse”? If so, I’m going to have to change the one poem I just wrote. For some reason, now I’m having memories of your having written something like that, and I don’t want to plagiarize.

    I like your recurring theme of alcohol being “Poison”, and since you sometimes read my blog, I wrote the poem with you in mind.

    I tried my best to avoid using the word “Poison” because that’s your imagery, so I took to Harry Potter and used the luck potion instead, to base the metaphor of my poem. I also borrowed the potion ingredients from Jagermeister.

    But, I don’t want to title a piece the same as yours. I can’t find anything you’ve written on it. I really just wanted you to know that you can beat the poison. I believe in you. Jesus took away from me all of my wickedness.

    Thanks. God bless.
