cursed. a poem by sandra.

When you’re lost in the midst of a miserable day
You look for me, you find me and pain disappears
I make you laugh…
It’s my curse.

Everything I say echoes in your head
Happy or sad, frustrating or naughty
I drive you mad with my words…
It’s my curse.

You won’t understand why you’re thinking of me
But you cannot stop, you’re left powerless
I get inside your head…
It’s my curse.

I catch you staring at me (oh, not at my eyes)…
When you watch me walk away, you stifle a moan
My God-given curves…
They are my curse.

When I finally surrender to you
You pretend you have the will to resist
But we both know you don’t…
It’s my curse.

After a single delicious kiss you’re hooked…
You want more, you need more, completely consumed
You’re helplessly addicted…
It’s my curse.

You think I couldn’t possibly tempt you more,
But I need only a dress, a look and these heels.
I tease you without a word…
It’s my curse.

Your inhibitions lost on the bed, the chair, the floor.
We shower but somehow I make you feel dirtier
My bad boy, now you’re naughty, too…
It’s my curse.

You smile and tell me how terrible I am
I cannot disagree but you must admit
Bad girl works for me…
It’s my curse.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
