Man On Fire

Man On Fire

A Poem by Rico X

At night
The lights
Shine so bright
Reflecting truths
Upon a world of
Lies and deceit
Whose truths
Are not self-evident
Cause all things are
Not equal
See,
What I got
When I decided
To jot this down
Was nothing at first
But then I screamed
Not because I was hurt
But because I hunger and
Thirst
My
Self-righteousness
Might create a quagmire
See, I am a man on fire
But my desires are snuffed out
I doubt
I will recover cause I have discovered
That my lover has been unfaithful to me
Still does she love me?
Is it true that
He is still married to the backslider?
Though the truth ejaculates inside her
She still masturbates
Giving birth to false prophesies as fantasies
And deception are impregnated by Satan
Forces correction
As intercourse is forced upon the earth
As many will be hurt
The after birth will need to be cut
As the leash around the beast
Will need to be choked so that hope
Has a chance to live, knowing that only he forgives

There is a sense of powerful emotion here Rico~It is hard to feel that one has been deceived. Sometimes truth's come in painful packages~

To my favorite student...as always it's a pleasure to hear from you. I am still waiting on your firs.. read more
always a question...if someone cheats on us...does that mean the love for us is over, or just a temporary lapse...

and at night the moon shines brightly and uncovers much...and yet questions still linger in the shadows...
