Bliss

Bliss

A Poem by Andrea
"

feeling of bliss turned sour.

"

Tattooing Bliss

upon your tongue.

Tying your words in knots,

pretending you cannot speak.

Ultimately, you are perfection.

A paradise-bound angel

Who has forgotten how to fly.

But despite that fact

You sit upon window ledges

hoping the wind picks up

and carries you away

If not you will fall

and at the bottom you’ll break.

You’ll be remembered as a girl

acting out.

A devil in disguise.

 

Pretending that Bliss

Was a reachable state.

A moment you can drive to

as you run away from home.

A feeling that is brought up

when you lay in a man’s arm.

Is there no moment of happiness

that brings no regret?

No arms will comfort you

As you lay alone the night after

Crying.

 

Praying for Bliss.

Kneel down and bow your head,

forgetting that you live your life

looked down upon

by no God.

You say you hold faith

but you act anti-religious.

You’ve got your morals mashed up.

You take in your actions

that once felt like ecstasy

And now you carve into your arms

The name you deserve

Lady Anti-Bliss

Bliss versus Blister, it might be strange of me to ask which is better, yet the blister is a sign of hard work. I like this flow of sentiments, and I am amazed at how the means justifies the end. I especially like the way the first and last lines agree. You are doing so well here, nice write.

You want to be known as "Anti Bliss"
There may be things about bliss that
you don`t know yet, but your poem
is cute, inspired, analytical and sharp.
Nice writing ,

Unreachable bliss, a destination never to be had, torn to shreads each time you get close....

And this is amazing, I so loved reading it! I love how you described the state of bliss in such a lovely way.

nice. the first verse had me thinking of beth rowley singing angels flying too close to the ground. i like the way thoughts percieved aren't what was expected and the realisation of this. hmm, or i could just say excellent, as ever :)
