One last time...

The Leaving
 
 
I am the leaving
and the forgetting,
memory's martyr
love's despair
alone...abandoned coronation,
your auburn princess cannot wear
the dainty crown placed in her hair
 
so long ago
before the bleeding
before retreating and regretting
before the seething scornful stare
of her
the one
 
She cannot know
She cannot know
 
You loved me first
then let me go
 
 
Her lies...
a tangled web of wonder
weaved a spell that pulled you under
sultry thighs and pelvic motion,
creamy concupiscent potion
 
Salacious poison
prickly string
She bound you up
and watched you swing
 
~You~
oblivious
in your cocoon -
My hazy form across the room
is nothing more than where I was...
a place in time
she cannot know
 
You loved me first
then let me go
 
 
Ravaged sheets and pillow stains
are all remains I have to show
of us
before the final pain
came raining down and soaked my skin,
still burning from our secret sin
 
I opened up and let you in
just once again
 
She cannot know
She cannot know
 
Please make me come
before I go...

There's so much between the lines, although the lines say a lot. Who was she, Meg?

Who...that evil sorceress? The wicked witch. Real witches are beautiful. Didn't you know that, Ben?

Wow! Such pain, yet such majestic eloquence, flowing like a mighty river, filled with force, with gravity, & with all of the tumultuous feelings that would be accompanied by the event described!!! I am awed & impressed with the literary magnificently of this deep poem!!! Well done!

I feel her loneliness and isolation maybe even rejection, replaced by someone not even worthy to replace her. Very good piece. I enjoyed it immensely.

I still don't know what the words "concupiscent", and "salacious" mean.

Sorry I haven't been commenting. I didn't know you had a page 2 now. I've been like, "did she just stop writing?" I'm a moron. I thought you were writing chapters for your books or something. Silly me. Thank God I found this 2nd. page!

You're not a moron, DL! I haven't been writing much, to be honest. But thanks for digging this up on page 2! Those two words both mean 'very sexual'.
You're right. I suppose I did come first!

Thanks for reading, DL! I love the comments!

The speaker cannot let go of the pleasure and life that has been stolen. A chance of physical pleasure cannot be turned down despite the danger. Lovely and true.
