Wired to your Electric

I watch you dance at my demise
for you there's pleasure in my pain
I witness you're only happy
when I'm miserable once again

if I were burning in a pan
you would be turning up the heat
Somehow I am not a person
on my sorrow you wish to eat

I see your eyes as they sparkle
on those cruel lips you have a smile
I'm wired to your electric
you're the one turning up the dial

my only hope is to escape you
or you will hasten my demise
You are unconcerned with the truth
you luxuriate in your lies

I chose the ones who celebrate
who's spirits rise upon my glee
I'm lifted on their good wishes
they only want the best for me

I relegate you to memory
for me it's easier that way
You could have lived in my happy
now your locked in sad yesterday

    "Who's spirits rise upon my glee" These few are truly worth the celebrating dear one. We are more blest than we know. A touching write.

    Fantastic write, as usual. You are right, we can choose to move beyond the people who bring us pain.

    There is however the possibility that through loving them they can be transformed. Yet sometimes we may be hoping for something that may never come to be. We sometimes need to realize the protection of our being has to be our priority.

    Sometimes, we are forced to love someone who has nothing but cruelty in store for us. Good write with good rhyming.

    They sound like toxicity, my friend, you do well to stay away and join the gleeful ones who give you your wings when you fly, stay up there Richard, aside the gleeful birds as they glide in the sky, lovely poem you penned, I like that one liner,"You could have lived in my happy" you live in my happy friend, good dayxxx

    Richard, this a well-written poem with vivid, and possibly livid images that linger on the mind. Take for example ,the following telling words: "if I were burning in a pan you would be turning up the heat"

    Ditto with me and my daughters, I love them to bits, and what we share is wonderful and strong... and that's such a blessing after the stuff I've gone thru...i guess that could be karma in certain ways. Oh but, life is good when you put such things behind you and enjoy the present, isn't it?

    Yes Ilene, it's my favorite line in Richard's latest as well. Is this a sad, true story? It's so well done that I feel really bad.

    I have several in my life this can be pointed towards. Thankfully, in the past. This ripped STRONG! Be sure to change the spelling of your title to "electric", if that was your original intent. :)

    Probably the best way to deal with those that wish you ill Rick, I've foun they even slip out of the memory eventually. The last stanza is a brahma. Take care, Richard
