In Love & Lust


Poem Commentary

For: Jacob Miller. You are everything I desire and everything I desire is you.

In Love & Lust

I'm just so tired of wait around for nothing to happen,
I want more, Even though it was great just loving and laughin'.
Waiting for him is like waiting for rain in a long-lasting drought,
This is what I cannot go without.
The aches and pains,
Feel so amazing as they run through my veins
Like fiery hot lava.
And It makes me sing like "La La"
Glass cannot shatter louder than my cries for him.
A river's water cannot outlast her sweet flow when lights are dim,
Nor her dew be less than the soft drops on flowers early in the morning.
This is my replacement for every addiction, I am learning.
He is food, he is sex
He is whiskey and cigarettes.
He is sweeter than chocolate and feeds my hunger.
The desire for sex, he gives way to it and honestly, I can't wait much longer.
I can't drink him from a shot glass but he quenches my every thirst,
I can't smoke him but he clouds any bad in my world, like strife and hurt.
I'd give anything for him to feel this for me.
I'm so in love tha I've convinced myself I'm ready for everything.
I think he should know...

I desire him more than anything.

"he is food, he is sex, he is whiskey and cigarrettes" i cannot tell you how much i love how raw and beautiful this line is. i actually made a noise as i read it. the entire poem is honest and adorarable.



Wow! Thanks I kinda like it too. Perspective on the poem has changed a little but the point still stands... The person I wrote this for just wasn't a healthy addiction..

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
