Sometimes

Sometimes

A Poem by Kira Fulks




Sometimes I want you and sometimes I don't

sometimes I crave you and sometimes I taunt

sometimes I mock and sometimes I scorn

sometimes I love you like Eros adorned.

 

Sometimes I wish you were here to assist

and together we'll see our way through the mist

I wish you’d be my Saturn, my homme

and love me, your Venus, as written in psalms.

 

Sometimes I wish you will never come back

to rattle my heart and turn it black

that finally for once I will get over you

this time it's 'Bye-Bye'... 'Sayonara'... 'Adieu'!

 

Sometimes as soon as I wish you away

I feel so alone and hope you would stay

sometimes I think we are doomed thus to live

indulging our pleasures and torments forgive.

 

Sometimes I want you and sometimes I don't

sometimes I crave you and sometimes I taunt

sometimes I wish you to love only me

sometimes I really just want to be free.

Love is a conflicting confusing song i must say and your poetry here reminds me of one very significant literary romance i have read about that was the love of Margaret Fuller with Ralkph Waldo Emerson.
Once one or both partners perceive permanence in the relationship, the struggle kicks in. This is when most couples break up. This is where conflict begins — both internal and external. We realize we have given up parts of ourselves for connection and want ourselves back. And yet giving up the comfort and joy of a relationship is so hard. I understand its a haven we don't want to step out of once we are in it but it shouldn't become a trap.
I dont know which way this kind of live would go but I do know that its an important experience contributing to our emotional growth so I suggest just flow with it. Thank you.

"Sometimes I wish you to love only me, sometimes I really just want to be free."
How can we all not relate to those wobbling feelings inside our heart. Sometimes we just wish that world would go as per our whim. Nice one. Thank you for suggesting this amazing read.

Thank you Anuja--so glad you enjoyed it...GMTA:)
Wow! Just beautifully worded. Love is a hard emotion to conquer, it can sometimes liberate as well sometimes be unforgiving. All the two mindedness between longing and leaving, the need of being together as well separate. It's a conundrum that will be hard to solve, better to leave it to fate and destiny sometimes. Time will unfold and be the judge of things to come AND guide us in our journey of love, hate and life.

Enjoyed reading this one. Has a roller-coaster effect to it.
Thanks for pointing me to this write! :)

The 'skipping' melody to this one gives it a 'He loves Me, He Loves Me Not' quality. I like the message that we often don't have the same feeling all the time about people dependant upon circumstances.

Your simple and repetitive chant works really well Kira. It suggests that the course of true love rarely runs smoothly. Perhaps the ups and downs add to the spice. I like how you've added humour (our spelling!) and I laughed at your witty use of taunt in line 2. Love everlasting or freedom? A bit of both would suit me.
All the best,
Alan

So many live in an either/or universe.
Not wanting to control does not, at all, mean you wish to be controlled.
When trust in freedom is the bottom line, lovers truly have something solid to build on.
High-level work, Kira.
