Arrows burn a white-hot
electric ember and sand
Silver mirrors the cold frost
Consumed with the obsession
Long lost lust denied
The Black Man is chilly,
but gives into my desire
and in my passion's paradise,
lies my erotic overload.

I always feel like I am the last person to discover an interesting blog. Such is the case with mindlovemisery, where she has written and posted some very cool poems. I saw that she has a linky up today with a prompt for early poetry. I immediately thought of "Eros" which I wrote right before my 21st birthday, and which shows the beginnings of my love of alliteration. I know that it was written at 4:17 because I noted it in the notebook. I also have this written underneath the poem
"about someone killing someone they 'love' in order to 'have' them (both ways) forever."
Then there is an arrow pointing up to this blurb from underneath and at the end of that arrow, I wrote
Ummmmm...."both ways?" What does that even mean? What the hell was I thinking? (and yes, there is a part of me that still fucking loves this poem...it was one of my favorites.)
Thanks, mindlovemisery for the laugh.
