Love Got the Best of Me

Love Got the Best of Me

A Poem by ROXANE DORSEY

Take my hand 
feel within this girl's heart
it skips uncontrollable beats
weakening me to the core
I'm feeling life exist no more
pain aims rock bottom
I'm numb to walking away
with nothing but tears
to burn my expressions
bubbling up flowing saltiness
drip drip to my dry lips
hurt thoughts pushed me 
to the edge
on my knees I had to pray.

This is so imaginative, it feels like a teeter-totter of love exploration! The title suggests that this might be a blissful situation, but as the poem goes on, some of your imagery feels downright difficult! I've never felt any kind of love like this, but I'm sure it happens. I am often sick of the typical sounding love poems, so I love it when a writer takes a love stroll down a totally unexpected path! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
