Your selfish living inside my heart

Your selfish living inside my heart

A Chapter by Rose

My fingertips,




Feeling the love

From head to toe

Lips touching

Kissing your smooth skin

Lying as I comfort your legs

Stroking them gently

Your legs treated

Like fur from a cat

Your voice tells me

How much you like to be

The main focus of the night


Your body

Heats the room

The temperature

Reminded me of red

You strip

Feeling delighted

To be in bed

In your eyes

I can see it written

All over your face

A smile stretches your lips

You're glad to be wanted

Throughout the day

Feeling even better

Wanted throughout the night


You're someone,

Unique and unforgettable

You love to socialise

It's easy for you

To find another like me

Another to let down

In revenge to attack me

For having a life

That is so much better


I adored you

You're now a memory

A fantasy

A dream

A nothing

Just something sexy

To have in my mind

So I can go to sleep

At night...

Author's Note

Opinions please.. This poem is about how selfishness can break up a relationship. The pain of it you just never want to feel it again.

I'm always astounded after I read your work, because every time I do, I remember why I fell in love with poetry in the first place, the flow of word, the meaning behind simple things, it brings life to lifeless things and that makes it beautiful. I could go on a huge long rant, but I don't want to waste your time.. Instead I'll tell you what I want you to hear, and it's that your work is incredible, thank you for sharing.

I like the contrast in this poem, the beginin is all about pleasure, passion and lust then it transforms into dissappointment and exasperation. I think this is something many can relate to

It's an honest and heartfelt piece. The great description of the love and desire strengthens the sadness and longing of the ending. Well done.

Posted 9 Years Ago

This is a great write. You set up the reader perfectly feeling the love and longing there, then it turns into something of reminiscence. No longer love per-say just self satisfaction in moving on. Outstanding in presentation and message.

Amazing.. I love the terms you used and the breaks and so mich emphasis. WOW!

I love how you really pulled me in with the smooth, sensual sounds and flow of your words. I've never been in any kind of romantic relationship, so I wouldn't be the first person to come to about being able to relate to your poem, but I think that it's certainly a very relatable subject to use as a topic. I love the imagery, the way you speed it up when we just begin to think that this will be another sex poem, then suddenly slow it to a crawl when we begin to realise that it's something more, that the mere act of sex may have the facade of intimacy, but there are so many instances when that is not the case and the litle demons inside you come into play. Your poetry really commands attention from its readers, and I can only hope that other future poets will have a strong voice and the courage to use it when they write. Keep up the good work.

I like the flow, the imagery and the sensuality of this. Well focused and expressed.

This has a strong thread of sadness in it. I'm sure she was treated badly but still is thinking about him. That's the worse pain of all.

Posted 9 Years Ago

So true about selfishness. Just something sexy to have in my mind.

Posted 9 Years Ago

This is a very loving, tender and rather romantic journey until the reader gets to the end and finds out the person is alone and fantasizing about being with someone. I can where the selfishness comes in since the person being dreamed about hasn't been very kind and loving in return.

I agree with mayhems kiss. Your work always makes me sit back and ponder what is. Wonderful job. (:
