Sometimes we love someone who isn't worthy of our heart

passion's kiss from genesis/
My love for U, my nemisis/
How could I C your blackened heart/
The pleasure U derive from pain/
I strain/
Beneath the weight of ur power over me/
Living inside a fantasy/
I know the truth............reality/
But running toward catastrophy/
I see/
you're just no good 4 me/
you'll never be/
Remove the chains; please set me free!/
I cannot go, although I know/
your heart's so cold/
A tundra in an arctic cave/
I fear I've lost; I'm lost I fear/
you hold me tight then disappear/
into this dream.........Loathsome nightmare/
This place from which I can't escape/
What have U done/
What have U done/
To my yearning soul?!

At first I snagged over your 'text mssg. abbreviations,' but after getting on with them, I find they are wonderful. I'm kind of 'older,' (61), so this is still new (these abbreviations), but you use the short forms well, and I find this piece of writing a hypnotic piece with so much strength and resolve. My favorite lines are: "Beneath the weight of ur power over me/" and "A tundra in an arctic cave/" and "you hold me tight then disappear/" The anguish of the last three lines is chilling, tragic and resurging at the same time. Realization provokes change. Beautiful piece.
