I Am You

I Am You

A Poem by Dhara_Ditzy Kat

If you are the knife

I’m your glinting edge

If you are the whip

I’m your scintillating lash

If you are a fatal arrow

I'm the Curare on your tip

Can a bull be a bull

Without its horns?

Or a snake be revered

Without its venom?

I am the bloodiest part of you

Nurture me deep

Within your belly

Your bosom, your soul

"I am the bloodiest part of you", that is a really powerful line. A dark piece of poetry. I found myself thinking, "don't be his partner in crime". Whatever you write you always draw me in Ditzy.

Thank you so much for stopping by :)
This is stirringly dark.. a cleverly constructed exercise in describing a wild, violent passion.. the stuff (lol) of sadism and masochism...

But I think it's just a bit of fun, really, an intellectual challenge in thinking up images of power and violence and poison.

Reaches for the cane...😛

I feel this as a bittersweet spiteful passion which has absorbed the deepest part of you..soul mates of the darkest kind..so very well written and expressed..

You're so welcome
The last few poems you have written have been, interesting. I see they come from a place of anger/resentment. I love the deep burning hatred that was presented in a almost seductive way if that makes sense. I love the passion!

Much Love

It is fatally fantastic. I like it. A new expression of love with some really unusual yet passionate images. Kudos.

Love should be kept anything but boring. Thank you Suhd. I agree.

Why would you want to nurture something so venomous? I don't think this is something like the fire you talked about in your other poem, for by fire I believe you meant the driving force, the motivation and will that pushes and urges us beyond our limits. But here the idea seems different, and the thought of treasuring viciousness is something I don't agree with.

A bull can be a bull without its horns. A real bull would charge just as ferociously even though it lost its horns. Real courage is when you put yourself on the line when you have things you don't want to lose and when you don't want to die.

In case I got the meaning all wrong, please let me know. It would help me understand poems better, and also understand you better. :)
