III. venus

and she smirks because she knows she's got
you wrapped around her little finger, waiting
for a kiss from her cherry chapstick lips, she'll
stab an arrow through your heart, but you don't
mind 'cause it turns the blood in your veins to
liquid gold, and every time a smile adorns her
rosy face, you have to hold yourself to stop your
chest from leaping out of your body, and you
curse her name because you never wanted this
no, not this, falling in love burns like her core

    This one reminds me of that quote “men are from Mars and women are from Venus”

    Wow again, this is so beautiful. "cherry chapstick lips" was so specific and I feel like also a pretty basic flavour so it really opens up who this person could be. and "blood in veins to liquid gold" was just a perfect description of love and then the ending- oh my!

    woah, this hits hard. okay and the structure of these poems, of this collection, adds so much.
    "curse her name because you never wanted this
    no, not this, falling in love burns like her core"

    lol nice. i always liked that style of folk rock. it also serves as a pretty good metaphor in my poems/story so.

    RE: I'm sorry but that is so weird because I literally haven't! I'm really not sure what's happening? Maybe it's a glitch?
