Confessions of the soul


  • JonTalbain
  • Didn't I tell you, what I believe... Did somebody say that....that love like that won't last? Didn't I give you all that I got to, give baby?

Confessions of the soul

I don't know
Whence it came
The scintillating passion, the titillating lust
The undeniable pleasure
But...This Curse comes
with the sweetest guilts and pleasures
I don't know how I came to love you
I know that I do not despise you
But you won't let me be free
A memory that torments me
I could know many lovers
Indeed, kisses, touches and aggressive fucking
could not undo you from my soul
Try as I might, I do not want to surrender anymore
but no means to be free
This curse...comes with no peace nor remedy
Sacrifices not needed, trepidation not so far from the horizon
Lost and slain, in lust, forever in delirium and wracked with emotional pain
I lose control

To commit the pleasures of the soul
A Crime of Lust unbound
do I find myself lost again in such a downy cleft
Scared to let go, but dying to be free

My god, You will forever be one of the greatest poets I have ever known. The yearning, the nostalgia, it is all consuming here, i have missed your words, wow you are as enchanting as ever and I am blessed to know you!

I appreciate the passion in which you manage to convey those feelings we all have come to discover, at one point or another. "To commit the pleasures of the soul A Crime of Lust unbound do I find myself lost again in such a downy cleft Scared to let go, but dying to be free" The ending couldn't scream louder! Powerful and intriguing, Great write!

Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.

Plato (BC 427-BC 347) Greek philosopher.
