Charactors that i have met.

I look at the way you walk
Hear the way you talk
Speak sweet nothings to those nae enough to listen
Ignorance is bliss
That’s all you know
Playfully flirt
Playfully stroke
Playfully kiss
Playfully grope
Dance and drink
You are painfully broke
Glass like charisma keeps you safe
Looks get you half way
Bullshit gets you the rest
Constant thoughts that you’re the best
Consistent conversations revolve around you
Your neurotic tendencies make my blood boil
Fists clenched
Knuckles white
Dangerous fires you ignite
Only I see your heart
Full of spite
All this but you had a use
A gift of future sight
Now seen in all your splendour
I know
I will not become the thing I hate
You never knew but now I know
You were my cure.

Son of Niwri:

Did you intend Line #1 to read:

"I look at the way you walk"? Just wondering!

Happy trails,

Ed Bradley.

Glad you like it Hoodling, took awhile to write, i can get lost writing sometimes and forget what iam writing about. I to like the ending, ties the poem off well...i hope.
