Deadly Love

Deadly Love

A Poem by Jessica Lima

My fingers closed around your neck

And you struggled to breathe...

Was it love I saw in your eyes,

As you stared back at me?


Foolish... Foolish girl.

You couldn't make me change!

At least not in time,

To see my heart repent.


You should have told the world

Pain is how I showed my love.

And found yourself a gentler soul,

To give you what I'm incapable of.


But you loved me strong,

And you loved me true.

That, my dear...

Was the death of you.

Deriving gratification from one's own pain or humiliation seems to be the theme of this hauntingly macabre write. There is a word for this … but I will just say ‘interesting’ and good word structure to convey the message within the text!

I'm kind of a big dork. Very, VERY geeky. I love poetry, and that's 90% of what I write. Life is chaos, and Poetry... isn't. It is something you can control, that's why my poetry always rhymes. I love.. more..
