The Burning Sensation Of Destruction

When I see her I get a strange burning sensation
I start to feel queasy and quite uneven
My legs start to shake
My mouth hangs agape
And I am overwhelmed by this angel from heaven

Faster! Faster! My heart pounds!
As the creature of unspeakable beauty comes around!
I stutter and stammer and make a fool of myself
As this beautiful goddess whisks her beauty towards me—myself

Regally she strides across the earthen floor
Showing her beauty to only me and no more
To everyone else she seems quite common
But to me you see she is a rarity
And to me will not soon be forgotten

Yet as my heart grovels and grovels and begs for
That word that I dare not even write no more
My mind retorts and puts up a great fight
It screams and yells at my heart and tells it to stop
It reminds it of the pact I made with God and Satan
To never love, that is my law

The name of the pact is multiple things
One of its names is chastity
Another name is solitude
And please do not be appalled and overtaken
But please let me tell you what I see
In that word I dare not say to thee

It is forsaken
It is forbaden
And I have come to a traiven
And I have a hesitation
To do that thing that I am forbidden to say

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
