Strange Woman - Poem by John G. Nelson

Strange woman
if I felt in love with a strange woman
whose love is adorned by every human.
body braids lights, in a perfect unison,
Causing street lights to sway for a season.
Making stars, & the sun to fall out of sight.

if her love become a trick of the nerves,
Searching heart, but love refuses to serve.
Ecstacized & intoxicated by wrong desires,
But heart got a rare way of desiring things,
Desiring novel souls, that worth nothing.

if a strange woman became a toxic source,
Breaking my bone & leaving me bruises.
& her honeycomb of her lips keep dripping.
palate smoothens then oil & keeps bubbling.
I’d cried years; from her bitter wormwood.
