For the one I love

For the one I love

A Poem by Amber Victoria Tudor


Take the baby steps and avoid the cracks
Because backs break and hearts ache
Becoming shells of what they once were
Pasts are not forgotten, they linger
Like weeds and warts
Spitting spite like venom from a snake
Those stings are the worst to bear
Take a complacent wife, something silent
Or take none at all, because the venom
Poisoned you a long time ago
Happiness is a hop, skip, and a jump away
Just throw your stone on the right square
Do not let fear consume you
Making you more complacent than I will ever be
You become what you have loathed
When the pain that you must harbor
Prevents you from loving another

This is terribly bright.

I really enjoyed this - the idea of life being like a game, depending on where your stone lands. I really liked the lines "Take a complacent wife, something silent / Or take none at all" & the last couple lines leading up to the end. They were very pretty & wrapped the poem up nicely. Great job with this!

sweet write;) I love the complexity of the sounds in the first two sentences, complex but it works it out. you remind me of velvet in almost every way.
