Poison

Poison short poem

Uploaded by Marjorie Meetoo


I let you into my bloodstream
And you are a poison
The poison of youth
And the poison of desire

You poisoned my sleep
And the salt of my earth
You poisoned my heartbeat
The rhythm of my breath

You poisoned the space
And the emptiness in my heart

You poisoned me
With the taste of your name
