Skin

Skin

A Poem by Lexi Richard

From the start, I had my fears
I took it step by step
I knew not to play with boys
Whom I would soon regret

But soon my mind turned into mush
You caught me in your daze
With your eyes, your lips, your lies
I was lost in the haze

For you, myself was hidden deep
My emotions trapped within
And while I loved you for your heart
You only loved me for my skin

- l.r.

I used to be a big fan of the whole love thing... then she gave me herpes. Now it's just about the sex.

The swamp of attraction. Easy as hell to get lost in.

hoo, hoo, hoo!! Brava!! That ending is killer. In all honesty, the musicality could use a bit of tweaking here and there, but the whole progression of this poem is freaking awesome. How it all ends up with that line - absolutely fantastic! Well done!

The poetic revelation of lust on his side and love on yours - an ever demoralising spiral to regret. Sadly poignant, but creatively penned! :-)

Well done and imaginative. You had a nice flow here and you say a lot in this sad situation.

You speak of an old story that I've heard many times from girls and woman on the site.

For some guys, it takes many, many years to realize what they had and how foolish an immature they were.

Nice writing Lexi.

Beautifully expressed, the men who appreciate both in and out are the ones most women don't want....
