That wicked Apple

The Dance

If comfort is what I truly want,

Then why is destruction my only song?

It's spiraling, twisting, and decaying

Breaking away the haze I have placed


Everyone sees such brilliant love

Emanating within me from above

But dare they know the truth...

That I am ugly and obtuse


Strange in my want for wicked

Yearning for lust in exchange for sin

Banishing cries inside myself

To wander in abyss-forever left to reminisce


This beast raging and thrashing

Screaming your name which burns like lashes

My want is to sacrifice love

For chaos and passion in your arms


Please....please understand

This emerging wave of panic-

I can't contain it's mass

This enormous weight and force

Crushes the last of my soul


As it flattens and whispers remorse

As my conscience grieves for my mortal soul

Only a few moments pass

And my desire flares, bringing forth my passion



Author's Notes/Comments: 

This isn't done yet...I don't really know how to finish it. Maybe because what's inspiring it hasn't come to a conclusion either. I'm hoping I'll be able to finish it soon.

You say it so well. When we think we're somebody who is so saintly...we need to balance it out and show ourselves that really aren't anybody saintly. So acting unsaintly is just being authentic. Thanks for writing.

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
