Love and Lust

I did not mean to snatch your heart
Like with the claw of a vorocious bird of pray
You fell into my unset trap 
Speared yourself upon my harpoon 
Which had only been hanging on the wall
You threw yourself into my way
stole my arrows and brandishing them with cupids blood
Punctured your heart without a thought 
Other than the whisper of my name 
You claim that I'm a siren
I've led you to your death
But it was the birds i sang to 
Your name did not leave my unforgiving lips 
With swollen eyes from crying
Filled with swirling colors of obsession 
You beg to me and plead with me 
Blaming me and cursing me  
Claiming that i drug you here
Forgetting it was you who snuck in through my balcony 
To watch me in the fountains 
And listen to my voice
To see how the animals follow me
And witness how the moon becomes my robes 
And the stars become my eyes
How the setting sun remains all night 
Within the silk of my hair 
how roses color my cheeks 
In the darkness of the cold 
And the world surrounds me 
And the beauty of the light i behold 
Where in this story did i bewitch you 
Where did i make you call my name 
Did i once respond or invite you to play a game
you claim i did this to you 
When you only did it to yourself 
did you enjoy your gaze upon the child of Cerynian
Did you think I'd become your obediant wife 
When did i claim i loved you 
How quickly you think of these blasphemous lies 
Your not in love you simpleminded mortal
Your infatuated and in lust and your lust is a lie

    Well, thats a quick kick to the crotch - every woman seeks adoration, the problem seems to be that ethier attract too much, or the wrong bunch - I like how this powerful female persona while clarifying her strengths and beauties simultaneously describes herself as a victim of attraction - there is a Goddess quality to this composition Jay and I like it - the perfect amount of detail - one truly gets a taste of the misery of being so beautiful and yet so untouchable - this is a FAV. - J.A.B. %

    Now, dont get me wrong, it goes both ways, Men - the right men, the true ones who act that way chilvery and all, they should be treated as, perhaps not Gods, but kings. Or more so the Consorts to The Goddesses, that way none mistake the type of God I refer to.

    I couldnt have said it better myself. I love how you notice the Goddess aspect...I Feel like every woman treat themselves like a Goddess (Just not the snoody stuck up kind) They should all feel that way, and be treated as such...I Feel there is a Goddess inside everywoman..and now in days, many men, and other women, take woman for granted.

    Love and lust can be a potent combination if joined in equal parts. I just Love the way you write, it evokes such powerful images.

    Indeed they can, but what happens when either or is not asked for by both parties, and only tried to force by one? Not good news...She put him straight this time, thought that doesnt always happen in life...Im so glad you love the way I write that makes it even better for me (:
