Dear Lover
I am the alienator.
Killing words of love with phrases of regret
Turning affection and hugs into neglect
I love you. I loathe you. Don't forget
forever and never won't happen yet.

I'm the bitter. she's the sucker
falling for words like 'dear' and 'lover'

From pen strokes written with fallen tears that thicken
as this conflict leaves our heartbeats quickened
I turn to leave this romance sickened
I told you before. You never listened.

But she's so sweet. With apologies
"It's all my fault"s and "I'm sorry"s
But it's not. it wasn't. how could it ever be
When I watched it die right in front of me?

You're such a good girl
Always bending your will for another's world.
Needing. and wanting. in near desperation
For someone to show you a new sensation

But I'm just a pauper. playing the part
of the perfect stranger after your heart
Graceful and gifted in the ways of art
With sentiments and promises of a new start

But now I recognize
The lift from a lie used
to keep me beside you

That's not love, my dear. That's desperation.
Author's Notes:
"Am I a monster when I sink my teeth into her?
When I don't love her.
No, I don't love you.
Forgive me, darling.
But love has nothing to do with it,
It has nothing to do with how I can't stop
Until I get what I want from you.

This is what real men keep quiet
It doesn't exist if you can hide it behind your teeth and sleep
Just sleep at night next to your wife who you love too much to tell her
That you don't love her at all..

Am I a monster
When I sink my teeth into her?."

-As Cities Burn.

The longest time since I walked away

and I still can feel you like yesterday

The smartest thing I have ever done

And Iím living now, now the funís begun

And yet Iíve left you far behind

My thoughts are with you still I find

Then something in me wanted to take you

If you love someone you would be willing to give up everything for them, but if they loved you back theyd never ask you to.

This is very strong, which I don't really think is the word I am looking for. I like it.
"I am the alienator.
Killing words of love with phrases of regret
Turning affection and hugs into neglect
I love you. I loathe you. and don't forget
forever and never won't happen yet."
That's my favorite part. It reminds me of something I said once. Great job?

You are skilled with the pen! Awesome write!
Comment By: FreeAlison Storm Wolf on September 30, 2008 11:52:19 AM Report
You have the rare ability to write rhyme without squeezing and manipulation...

You have a certain confidence in your output and although you say you are never happy with your work and I am sure that is the should be glad you have the ability to express yourself with a maturity and style that most do not have

This part the heart of the poem...I love.
((But I'm just a pauper. playing the part
of the perfect stranger after your heart
Graceful and gifted in the ways of art
With sentiments and promises of a new start

I've met you before. I'll greet you again.
When I next perform my new end.

i like the way you use your words, there is a great flow to this piece emphasized by the rhymes.
i also enjoyed the way this poem seems to be directed...there is such a critical aspect to your words, (i.e. "she's the sucker/ falling for words like dear and lover"), juxtaposed by the very fact that you've titled this "dear lover"...definitely inspires some critical retrospection on the idea of luring/criticizing/patronizing...etc....
and yet amidst all of that there is a very real quality beneath the words...a real sense of regret almost?
okay i better stop interpreting here.  but i enjoyed this, loved your use of words. nicely written.
