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 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!
