Poison - Poem by Erica Francis

I try to read
but all I see
is your face.

Your kiss is poison
and not a drop
has yet touched my lips.

    Yes, quite powerful. You've created a LOT of intensity in a few lines. You've really painted the nature of that kind of obsession.
    I wonder WHY he's poison, of course. Don't know that you need to answer in this poem.
    Such a paradox, you've dramatized it so well.
