Smooth as Silk

Smooth as Silk

A Story by lawrence bear

a love poem




For years,

I wanted to tell you.


The affect,

You have on me.


I've let you control me,

Let you inside my head.


I've given you everything,

Even my life.


My spirit,

My heart.


When the time has come,

To tell you of my love.


Say what I've felt,

How I've yearned you.


"I love you" I say,

I open up to you.


In front of your peers,

You whispered in their ears.


You looked around,

To make sure everyone was watching


"That's cute" you said,

And laughed.


Laughter filled my head,

Ripped apart my soul.


Embarrassed I was,

Hurt I am.


Now I stand before you,

Listening to your cries.


No one hears,

No one to help.


We're all alone,

Here in the meadow.




What a wonderful sound,

Smooth as silk.


You whimper,

and piss your pants.


Now its my turn,

To laugh.


"How come?" I ask,

"Don't... Please.." sqeaks from you lips.


"You ain't laughing now,



My finger pulls the trigger,

An echo follows.


A surge runs through my viens,

From my head to my toes.



You can't hurt me,

Or anyone no more.


You ain't laughing now,



Good-bye my love,

So long cruel world.




What a wonderful sound,

Smooth as Silk.

You brought me in with a sweet tale of love and heart brake. Closed with sweet revenge. A surprise ending to this poem. I like it. Thank you for this excellent poem.

Well... I used to think falling in love was a blissful and wonderful thing... hmmm... and that is how a mind is changed in an instant.. .smooth as silk.

Absolutely chilling. I was not expecting that abrupt change in tone. Yikes.

The Friday Night Movie has nothing on this, the pace of this piece plays out in your head like a full feather performance

Very brutal, I wouldn't call this love but obsession, the kind that kills obviously. I just don't think someone who truly loved would go that far. The story in the poem is very compelling, it shows how far someone can go when they are hurt on many different levels. Great jog on telling this story in poem form.
