The Wrong Ending

The Wrong Ending

A Poem by Victoria Harlequin
"

Something that you would never expect or want to happen.

"

 

It started with those first few words
“My dear, you are lovely”
My breath caught and my heart raced
I had to have you, I was desperate
There was nothing about you I didn’t want
 
Next, the kiss of possession
The hairs on my neck rose
I could hear the pounding of drums
Your devilish smile made me quiver
Everything spun out of control
 
Later, your arms claimed me
Body and soul – I belonged to you
Sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing
You surrounded me in every way
Silently I tried to get away, but I couldn’t breathe
 
Nearing the end, punishment of love
I hurt myself for your affection
You pushed me and pulled me down to you
I could see the changing of the tracks
Soon I lost my voice and mind
 
Finally, the beautiful death of you
Never would I have thought it would end this way
My love smothered you without hesitation
I was left in a state of confusion
It wasn’t supposed to be you…

Really good! So captures the suffocating, mind confusing, soul shattering thing that is obssession/love. Yes, we never want it to end that way.......smothering the beloved. This was excellent......one of your best!

Wow this is a really beautifully written poem. I like the saddening twist near the end, I really enjoyed it. You are a very talented writer :)

I like the concept behind this poem and the lesson learned.

I especially like the closure - "It wasn't supposed to be you."

Very well written!
