nerium love

By FadedBlues

Cry for me. with your big brown eyes.
you will love me when I'm here,
& long for me when I'm not.

better hide your heart, girl,
deceit is my calling card.

I'll adore you as the world's most beautiful woman,
she who stepped out of Pygmalion's desire,
then rush out to the whores in the street,
while you dream in the red shadows.

I'll steal the orchids that bloom in your ragdoll fantasies
& deposit your affection in the nearest dumpster.
in the market, they will call you mistress of misery,
indiscreet inamorata.

you can load your gun with hollow-point bullets
machined in the arsenals of hell,
but you'll never blow away my oleander kisses.

my name is bad news, & my arms cut your skin
when they embrace you,
but you can't get enough & you can't walk away
because you're a woman.
just a woman in love...

you'll hate me & curse me & wish I was dead,
but as long as I'm here,
your big brown eyes will

Cry for me, baby.

    I think I can resist your charms (HA)! and fearless dragon said it best, but it just seems like some women are built that way - once you get the key to their kingdom - beware the "Basic Instincters" or as Stephy calls them bunny boilers!

    A man so sure of yourself. Oleandro to your own love. Maybe one day she could find the antidote. Meanwhile, where is the line? Love Oleandro. (Here, in Brazil its calls espirradeira).

    Damn if that isn't the truth! I love first person narrative! Guys like this make it hard for girls to love the real men out there. Great write!

    Exquisite poem, in the same way as the flower is beautiful but poisonous . Falling for a wrongun! Sometimes we just can't help ourselves!
