micropoetry - sixwords

You benumb my heart with falsity. 

micropoetry session

Be attentive
To the strokes my words and my pen give
How my fingertips cling
To every sensastion of release
How I please
Your imagination
With my words'
Lingering tease

micropoetry - sixwords

Unbound. Undress. Undo. Abound. Persist. Subdue.

poetry session

The Cycle

You knew
Exactly how to treat me
In every respect
And I
Never held back or
Never harbored
Any regret

You knew
How to read me
And accordingly
React to the way
I was feeling
How to recite words
To get me wet
Poetically speaking,
You whet
My curiosity,
You pique
Reactionary peaks
In climactic reactions of release             

You knew
How to freak
With that unmistakable physique
And that unforgettable technique
Had this poet void of speech
Brought me to my knees
In receipt of weak-

I would’ve liked to be your queen
In fact, loved to have
Quite possibly
Earned that deserv’d  esteem
In your comfortable-
You grew restless
And conveniently
Perfect elusiveness

You persisted
And insisted
That I was the one
(Less the incessant
And domestic stress)
Was there something that I missed?
Was I
So high up on your list
That it made you
Reach less?
Impervious in every sense?
What has got me this stressed?
Causing me to regress
Into a cycle of
Residuals and
Non-reciprocal requests
This cyclical dependency
Has got me sick mentally.
Has me cynical to the ones who
Deserve me
The ones
Who will love me
Tell me then, 
Who will love me better?
