I hear the ticking of my clock,
then the chime as it strikes ten.
The room is dark and warm tonight...
only a fan keeps it tolerable.

You are safely in bed, asleep.
The demons in your mind are too.
You left your door open wide...
so I peek in to check on you.

Sometimes an angel, others not--
but just what am I to you, honey?
Am I your lover, or punching bag?
Am I your friend, or am I nothing?

You stir in your sleep, smiling.
Perhaps your mind-demons will rest.
I blow you a kiss and start back,
thinking of what we mean to each other.

Sometimes, Salma has problems with her "mind demons" (her term for the voices that torment her at times).
I wrote this poem a couple of nights after a rather heavy-duty episode.
P.S: The next day, she was all giggly...even hugged me without hesitation.

Why, thank you!
Check out my gallery if you desire.
But be forewarned...there are entires marked "Mature Content!"
If you can hang with that..."Come Get You Some!", to quote the Turtleman!

No problem. Sure , I'd love to see more of your amazing poetry. And of course I'll stay away from the mature ones. I am hoping to do better with my poetry. Although I'm kind of new to it

It's nice meeting another lover of poetry.

Just keep on writing--with practice comes ability.
And when that creative urge hits--feed it!
For me, that creative urge strikes at any hour...that's why my laptop is ready 24/7/365 for some creative work!
Stay Deviant!

I have been told that I have the tools and the talent...it just took years of writing to polish-and-hone my abilities.
It's the same for everybody who wants to do well at this craft.
Now if only I can get my books on Amazon's Create Space to sell ("Unchain The Night" and "How Does Love Taste?" are my two on that site...as well as the first books I have had published!)...but that will come with time.

Oh, btw--"saint-level" paitence is a great habit for ANY writer to cultivate!
Especially when dealing with critics.

Stay Deviant!
