With Undying Affection

Your smile, like thunder,
pounds in my eardrums
whenever it appears,
the beauty of its foundation
being incomprehensible
to behold. So I cringe
and shy away, believing
myself unworthy of
such a flawless sight,
which pierces my senses
like a serrated blade
that cuts down deep
into the fiery trenches
of my heart’s passion,
refusing to relinquish
its hold over me.
Although I have fought
the feelings postulated
by your very existence,
I have instead become
a slave willing to
humbly serve you,
with undying affection.


About totalovrdose

I am an online journalist, video game reviewer, mental health advocate and post graduate university student. I am a massive video gaming geek; a lover of intellectual conversations; an award winning procrastinator; a devilishly charming nuisance and the definition of 'fun' (sometimes). My blog is filled with many a soporific love poem, and is simply the beginning in my quest to become a published author. Please stop by and say 'Hi!' (that rhymes!) :D

  3. It totally engrossed me in. Awesome.

  4. You write with your heart and soul, as a poet should. Beautiful piece.

  5. Loved it. Pace, rhythm, theme, sound – everything worked. —–Chagall

  6. An intense heartbeat pervades in the tone of this well structured aspirational piece. Very well done.

  7. a slave, huh? 😉

    seriously, well written

    • Yes ma’am, a slave. I really enjoy using the term ‘slave’ in both negative circumstances (to heighten the power of the anguishing features) and in positive connotations (to employ the idea that, as an example, love is uncontrollable). Thank you for the comment ma’am! 😀
