Oh My...

Oh My...

A Poem by OliviaTheElf
"

A little poem I've written about a man who couldn't have the girl he desired so he killed her and is singing this to her while he buries her in the basement. Delicious, no?

"

All the little rowboats sailing in a row,
All I ever desired was to see someone I respected without their clothes.

 

Oh my, how I've watched you change and how we've grown.
Those flickers of wheat like every mind you've ever blown.

Little city lights dancing across your skin.

All I ever desired was to taste your every sin.

 

While you're lying next to me, you're lying on the cracks of pavement as they breathe.

Oh my, how we've lied and made the June leaves dry.

 

I do get bored while looking in your eyes.

That's why I enjoy it every time you cry.

 

Like little wings on little flies,

I'll only hold you up until you die.

 

Oh my, how we've grown.

Oh my, all on our own...

I read the caption, I read the words and
I don`t understand the wandering thoughts.
What caused you to create such a tortured
mind ? What, in your child`s heart possessed
you to invent a beautiful , but despairing poem.
You have gargled with my brain ?

I wonder what was going through your head when you came up with this idea but nevertheless you made it work to a degree, the 2nd stanza emphasises creativity in realtion to the story
