Larger Than Life Itself - Poem by James Lee Watts

Oh my god, she blows my mind,
She beautiful and gorgeous; she’s one of a kind,
She can mould and manipulate me,
Into whatever she may please or desire,
She’s the one that sets my heart on fire,
There’s just something about her; but what could it be?

She brushes straight past and gives me a glance,
And spins my heart into a raging trance,
It comes up into my mouth and I try to swallow it again,
But my heart longs for her in such a fashion,
That I lust for her with such a passion,
Surely she knows it; but just puts me through pain,

When I see her my heart rings like a bell,
But deep down I know she’s putting me through hell,
On my heart her name is burned,
However I go back and ask for more,
I need to know…just to make sure,
That my love for her will never be returned.

    Oh how very true, James. Yes...this is what life, in its many ways, in its many times, teaches us. And...indeed...it can be a hard path for us to walk...

    You're writing is telling all of us life's stories....I commend you...

    Just me, lare
