The Cupcake in my Eye

The Cupcake in my Eye

A Poem by Reaper

A devil whispers in my ear, temping me,

Wishing for nothing but sinful behavior

I should have slit its throat a long time ago

Black thorns buried deep inside my veins

Slowly draining my existence away

Your kiss unlocks the deadlock battles inside

You live in the gap between man and monster.

I use your love as my shield

My built up pain as my sword

A suit of armor built by our collective craziness

All to slash and kill the demons of my past

Take a last look of what I was

I’m not that starry eyed doe of a boy

Now I’m indestructible…

Destroy the bridge and deadly gap in my mind

Between Reaper and the man I am.

I’ll move forward, masking the fight inside

All signs point to bloody victory

As long as you are by my side

You told me to believe

The belief I would love again

Who knew it was going to be you

That I would fall in love with

And get some salvation for my soul.

Your words take on a meaning to what true love is and the willingness to do anything for anyone. It shows the turmoil of life and pain and how one moment of uncertainty can open into a cavern of love we've never truly know was there. It blossoms in the life of scarce freedom and fright. In the time where we cannot see much further then our own hands like puppet strings held to our face. Running without seeing, and it captures us, as you have captured this poem with a breathlessness so beautiful.

Well done. :)

Damn Reaper I think this is the best poem I’ve read from you…so far.
Your talent grows more and more with ever piece you write.
What a play of words to build the body armor.

I like the contrast but looking for a romance to save you, from what... being without romance? What is that reaper?

powerful, captivating, and consuming. The passionate emotion you convey in your poem is riveting.

A very good poem. Symbolises how no one is perfect, but love can still fight through the pain.

I love this, it just blossoms into something great, only to leave you alone with all the darkness and heat and passion, and then the love rises again to balance it all out. Geniusly written, my dear reaper. I love how you sort of set the entire scene for the poem in the first few lines. It's cryptic tendency leaves the reader mesmerized, and when it's all over, the reader is left in your trance. I love the way you write, Reaper. It's so beautiful. You make the English language feel ten times better about itself. Wow I'm using up a lot of comment space, haha. Well the point is, while your great stories and books (of which I enjoy reading very much) I think that poetry is the way to go for you. Like I said before, Reaper, any writing you publish is a hit. And this is a total hit. Well done, Reaper. Bravo :)

"I use your love as my shield
My built up pain as my sword"
A powerful story. I like the strong statements leading the reader to a good ending. We need love and purpose to give us hope and energy to keep fighting. I like the ending to the outstanding poetry.

Very nice, I love the deep feelings and depth in this. Love these parts:
"Your kiss unlocks the deadlock battles inside"

"I use your love as my shield
My built up pain as my sword
A suit of armor built by our collective craziness"

"As long as you are by my side
You told me to believe
The belief I would love again
Who knew it was going to be you
That I would fall in love with
And get some salvation for my soul."
