I have you
#1
I have you by the honeyed buds of words that trickle from my tongue;
held in some slick and sticky trap you struggle but in time succumb.
I have you by your wanton  watch, undressing  me as I walk by,
caught upon my barbless hook that snags your glance and pricks your eye.
I have you by your dribbling dreams of  deep, intensive games we played
upon the down-filled duvet nights when naked on your back you laid.
I have you by your feeble lies that trouble you because you know
that blustering through angered tears, you cannot leave, you will not go.
I have you by my tender touch that warns you when the party's died
and going home we face the night, I have you warm and by my side.
I have you by one other chain, cuffed and linked yet feeling free;
a clever cleat that slips yet holds... me to you and you to me.

I don't know what is going on here (or in Dale´s one). Maybe I am just too young.

I like this - and used a line about 'that look / that hook in the eye' just last week. Cosmic, dude! Smile
Poetry can be dangerous, especially beautiful poetry, because it gives the illusion of having had the experience without actually going through it.

It was never the same after Ellis Powell was sacked.

This is not valid critique. The purpose of critique is to improve the writer's work. Nice is NOT even a nice word. Note forum rules.

This is a fun read, especially L2, though the whole of it is fun to read.

I'm not thrilled by the me to you stuff but I like to contemplate what the "other" is.
