Better Than Revenge

Revenge is a bitch in tight arse jeans!!!

 

"Please forgive me?" 

Could I? Should I? Would I? 

As I gazed into his eyes. 

I knew my reply. 

 

I placed a finger on his lips. 

To stop his panic…Almost manic. 

"Shhh." I whispered softly. "No more." 

Was it really six months ago, he’d walked out the door? 

 

I wanted to ask. 

I needed to know. 

Where the hell had he been? 

Where the fuck did he go? 

 

Was he with her? 

The reason he’d left. 

Back here with me now. 

Did he leave her bereft? 

 

The angel on my left whispered. 

"Say no more. 

He’s back. Let him stay. 

Don’t make forgiveness a chore." 

 

The devil on the right decided. 

"No way! Don’t take him back. Don’t you dare let him stay." 

And me in the middle, a smirk on my face. 

"There’s the door babe…Get the fuck out of my place!" 

 

Revenge is a woman. 

Wearing tight arse jeans. 

Compelled by foreign instincts. 

That for once…She’d be mean! 

 

I hope you'll all forgive me? 

But instead of feeling sad. 

I turned it round the opposite. 

And ended up...Just mad!   Sealed

This Is How I Feel

Folder: 
Just For Fun

It Can’t Rain Everyday,
But as the Daylight falls;
When Angels and Serpents Dance,
I’ll Be Ready.
For Today,
As the rain is Descending Upon Us;
This Lifewar is Collapsing.
I feel Blood In The Tears
As this Internal Cannon
Is Driving Nails into my soul.

I remember the Story Of Us
And remember when you were Mine.
Tell Me Why, You’re Not Sorry,
I was Innocent in The Way I Loved You.
We were Fifteen and Fearless;
I thought our Love Story would last
Forever And Always.
I was Enchanted, as the Sparks Fly.
Memories take me Back To December,
And reminds me that the Last Kiss
Was Better Than Revenge.

I’m Haunted, I’m Addicted,
But that’s just the Tip Of The Iceburg.
Where Do I Go From Here?
I wanted to Curl Up And Die.
Sorrow makes it so hard to Breathe Today.
You want me to Let It All Out,
So Here We Go.

You’re The One I’m Waiting For
And they say that the Best Is Yet To Come.
But I’m Buried Beneath,
Or So I Thought.
I’m So Sick,
I can feel you All Around Me.

I’m Sorry.

I Just Want You To Know,
You’ll Always Be My Best Friend.
You’re in my Atmosphere,
Even when you’re Gone.
Hey Now, I need a Getaway Car;
Turn on the Ignition ‘cause Suddenly,
I’m All In, I’m Letting Go.
Whoopsi Daisy, I’ve caught a fire.
This “No Ordinary Love Song” is Boomin out
That I’m For You.
I only have one life, One World,
And God Forbid that I should be Poetically Correct.

So, come Shine With Me like the beautiful star you are,
Because you’re Perfect and I feel
Fully Alive for the first time in a long time.
Set Apart This Dream, The Kind
That has you Swept Away In The Dark.

I’m Melting away this Monster,
And there’s a Hero underneath
That’s There For You.
I’m Awake And Alive today,
And I don’t want to be One Day Too Late.
I Believe that I’m Forgiven and I’ll
Never Surrender to the Chasm.

Arise my Beautiful Bride as we watch Fireflies,
During a Vanilla Twilight.
I know that this is No Ordinary Love
And it’ll last until the End Of The World.

No more Divisions.
No more Cutting The Ties.
No more Levelers,
Just this Phenomenon.
I’m There For You;
I’m For You.

This Ain’t No Ordinary Love Song
Because you’re my greatest Treasure,
And When You Come Back Down
I’ll Be Ready,
‘Cause I’m The Lucky One
And I Love You.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This Poem was created in 2009 just for fun.... I was seeing if I could make a poem completely out of songs, and then added some words to make it flow better. Enjoy!
