Venus Flytrap

written by: Eric Johnson

 

There is a gleam in her eyes
Looking at me, I feel I cannot die
Emotions beaming through my mortal mind
Her absences deprive me of would-be life
She is not my breath but my very lungs
She did not steal, she became my heart
Every nerve in my body paralyzed by her toxin
The mental walls trapping me, I feel boxed in
Yet I have the key, always had, always will
But never will I choose to, unless she forces my will

Just a student trying to learn and explore the world one poem at a time. I usually write poems as a way to relax, I have been writing since I was a high school student but never really bothered to use any specific rhythm. I like to almost rhyme but not fully. Other than that I just enjoy writing poems because it gives me a different perspective of my mind.
