Trial


I Need Her Around
Every Time I Try Lift Off
She Pulls Me To The Ground
Reminds Me Who I Am
Keeps Me Deep Rooted
But The Truth Is
I Don't Root Here
So She Has It All Wrong
But I Won't Let Her Know
I Kind Of Like Having Her Here
She's The Only Thing About Me
That Challenges My Self Awareness
Am I Really This?
She inspires me
Antagonises me
She's my satan
Or maybe she's my God
You see she has me not knowing who I am
Firmly to the ground I take my stand
Grip tightly preparations for when I become a man
This is why I keep her around
I feel I have to prove something
And still prove nothing
The type of hate any man could use
She is loves enemy and lifes muse

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
