A Poem by Ayisha Upshaw

"
I lost myself 

In the maze of ways

I tried, most days,

To please you.


I tried and try

For you, my eye,

But can never fully

Appease you.


I dip and dive

And dodge these guys

To show you

I really mean to.


But I'm left behind,

Sealed and signed.

While you lie

I try to revere you.


You take some time,

Whether yours or mine,

To try things 

With other people.


When you're back in town

You come around;

I told myself

I'd leave you.


But I breathe you in..

The sweetest sin.

Your kisses, to me,

Are like needles.


I find my vein,

Inject again ..

You've got me 

Weak and feeble.

"But I breathe you in..
The sweetest sin.
Your kisses, to me,
Are like needles."

It's the toxic people we have the most trouble cutting off. This poem hit me, reminding me of the time I was cheated on by a woman who begged me to stay with her the three times I tried to leave. I liked your word choice. I might add that I could visualize, but I didn't feel the absolute depth of the pain, but that might not have been your goal. If it was, just a little more details would have easily sufficed as this poem really wasn't awful by any means. Well penned (:

If you'd believe it, I got chills reading the point where you give in to temptation. You have a way with words.

Of course, this reminds of someone i know. this really hit me.
I love this, it reminds me of a friend. Stock in a relationship that shouldn't be and mind full of sin. This is good work. The whole poem just rolls right off the tongue.
