Pygmalion -III

Pygmalion -III

I should’ve never taken you off
That pedestal
It was folly
To think that when
You became flesh and blood
You’d still want to walk
With me
Give my thoughts company
The way you did
All the days we were alone
But -that was when
You were stone

I carved your lines with love
Polished your edges
Smoothened your marble veins
Worked on you with
Bloody, chafed hands
I killed myself
bringing you to life
But in the end
You were just a man

    Why do you always write about love? Just curious I mean no disrespect.

    • I actually don’t, lol. If you look at my older stuff, there’s lots about anger and bitterness, and abuse, and healing.. I write about whatever is dominating my thoughts, and lately, it’s been love. 🙂

        Well love is great to dominate thoughts. Thanks. I don’t know. I think both the art from anger and bitterness and abuse and from love are equal kind of beauties and going between them is fun.

      • Ill admit, it’s a little out of character for me to even have ‘love’ on the mind. I am not a believer in love, rainbows, unicorns, or any of those happy thoughts that optimistic people can afford. But love happened, and I’m learning to, well, love it. :p

      • And you’re absolutely true. There is a raging beauty in pain. I think I looked at it for too long, though. Now that beauty makes my eyes ache.

        I don’t know but I am never in the clear. I don’t ever feel that love can hold up “forever” and the pain at somepoint must come back and I must go back to the painful beauty. If I could write about love I would.

    • I understand that. If it makes any sense, I still have trouble believing it. I think we get so used to the darker side of the world, because we live in it, that light ends up seeming completely impossible.

      I hope you find reason to keep believing. I hope I do too, lol.
