No Reservation

You Are Not Invited

--Latching onto my soul without an invitation--
Elements around my shore expose more than air
--Playing with fire is not a game you will win--

Silently she swarms in like a leech, 
Feeding and sucking from the wounds my pain left behind.
She came inside: "Uninvited!"
Here have a drink, and die!
Taste the water drips that sail across my lips 
Plodding vigorously in the open air of her unwanted hostility
Forbidden as one, I noticed her aura a sickening light
Imprisonment that haunted smoke around her own imperfections
The hate and envy, she lives in resides airborne
The sound that she have summoned up hunger  
Brought me near the edge of everything
Feel my pain, a touch of impurities    
Tainted, infected, poisoned passion, her face disguised
Surrender toward serenity, the lighthearted woman I am inside 
She will never take, my full eternal grace
It’s time to reveal that blazing fire I hide
Drown her from the false flown sorrows of gust
Hold her hideous head under water--- burn her false fire out

Never will I turn my back and watch her muster them broken lids
Lungful of lies poisons the wind that flows from her snake like voice
Maneuvering the skies, scheming that snatch in
Like a viper twisting its unmatched curves, 
I strike, like a pyromaniac  --A burning match 
Allowing her to taste a part of the air I breathe 
A waste in the breeze her insecurities 
Trying to destroy what she can't be, what she can't see
At the end, blustery weather will remind her of the sea inside me,

YOU! The Angel, who crawls around like a shadow
Gorging its way into the heart with a charm of greed
Twisting reality hoping nobody sees its true sick identity
Slandering my name as the master of evil and manipulative
Marking my territory, warning others of a cold draft
Grasping the beauty that glows from my soul 
There it stood on the ledge UNINVITED
The devil walked and took my shoes

The devil you say! Great write, Linda. Aren't you the busy bee? Don't forget to take a break now and then, and "chill the quill," as I sometimes say. Hugs ;-)

It is right and required sometimes to make the villain a victim PD., and no one does it better than you! Your heart should have a warning sign around it, " Be careful, this heart is avenged by Fury! " Love the match burning, and head under water... A righteous rage indeed. J.A.B.

One can go inside your heart through your deep and true words. It's very tough to write poems on the theme like this and need many times.Sometimes drops may drive down to write and goes the whole day in silence.Great work dear....

Ah... poetic licence is granted to all who write. I actually went into the latter part of last night wondering if I had been too factual in my approach to that first line. I pondered my harsh stance for some time. Then decided that I was crushing creativity. I absolutely agree with you, and will go on to try and learn from this for my own works. Did I get the back turned bit wrong as well? Sorry for all the comments below, except for the ones where I said you were awesome. Blush, blush.
