Pernicious Goddess

I remember the loathing looks you gave,
Lashing out like i misbehaved,
I can still taste your fist as i stood brave,
How could you be so malevolent, so depraved,
I did nothing but love you, as your hate you engraved,
All over my face, In one crashing wave,
You said you loved me, but your actions misgave,
I wanted to leave and tried to stay strong but caved,
I opened the door for your return, this unsightly road I alone paved,
Now i sit alone staring at you, hopelessly enslaved.

It only happened once, that fluttering,
I saw the eminence of your beauty, so enticing,
I read the words on your lips, as my own were quivering,
They touched, I froze, You moved forward embracing me,
I realize now that it was always you, to whom i was waiting,
We never exchanged words, and yet now its only your love i am attaining,
We sit and talk, everything you say, to me, is exhilarating,
I couldn't imagine life without you, what i feel is never fading,
You saw through my own lack of character, abating,
When it came to you, it was well worth waiting.

    Poetry is art.. with some poem you just have to let it flow in your mind, without trying to force the rhyme.. An example here It only happened once, that fluttering, I saw the eminence of your beauty, so enticing, I read the words on your lips, as my own were quivering... anyway, it was still a joy to read.. one love annie
