    Ah, I shouldn't have posted this here.

    I'll write poetry that is deserving her grace and these boards one day.

    Sadness and lust,
    Neatly packed into a ball.
    My inner sanctum howls for you,
    Please heed my call.

    I'm "So Anxious",
    But I am not Ginuwine.
    Sinful thoughts of an angel flown away,
    ...Dam your fine.

    But I shut my minds eye,
    I never trespass on my Creators property.
    You are not mine until s/he says so,
    All I want is to do this properly.

    Even if it spells out my demise,
    I will seek you to the ends of the earth.
    If God would grant me eternal life,
    I would rather have rebirth.

    Your landscape is adorned
    With beauty I have looked for since my conception.
    You are not a goddess,
    But to say I worship you is no eager expression.

    I have three eyes,
    Not two.
    I have been blessed
    To fill them with you.

    You did me wrong,
    And I did you wrong just the same.
    If we didn't use those experiences to our benefit,
    It would be a **** shame.

    I have to stop writing,
    I'm simultaneously smiling and crying.
    Even if I don't want you, I -will- have you.
    When they said love was blind - they weren't lying.

    Well as much as I want to agree that "love is blind" ..
    I tend to think that .."We are blinded by the love" there's a difference.
    This piece is none the less Awesome and it keep my attention.

    You're style is refreshing, it have a conversational tone that draws the reader in, and your phrasing is quite beautiful.
