of acid
through these veins
carrying venom
I canít
turn away from.
is more wrong
than Iíll admit to.
Call it intuition
it's all the same.
A fondue
bitter anguish,
taking me
to a place
I canít afford to go
right now.

Do I trust it
and let this voice
that has never betrayed me
take over?

Silencing it
is not an option.
Honesty took
a wrong turn
these words
lay dormant.
seep in
taking control
of this path
gone wrong.

I am on a journey. Looking for Me. Everyday I get a little closer. The more time goes by the more I realize I'm always changing. This journey could take forever... Renae L. Soler

Gone Wrong
I'll second that "wow", if I may? I know this feeling, and it's told here with immediacy and impact... a raw poem, this, but highly-strung and tightly wound rather than self-indulgently sprawling... feelings let loose with skill and passionate aplomb... nice to read a post from you too.

comment re: Gone Wrong
I especially like the line about the voice, and how IT never betrayed you.

The poem, taken as a whole, it implies that you at least suspect the object of your affection (and now your frustration and pain) of betrayal. You suspect that it's either happened already, or will happen in the near future.

It sounds like infidelity.

It's very raw, very powerful, and very good.

Thanks for sharing.

I love the snake bite imagery that you used at the beginning of the poem; it gripped me from the beginning.

been there!
Nae, this is not what I expected from you, but I love the immediacy, the frenetic pace of unsurety of who or what to believe when a seed of doubt creeps in. The acid in the veins was a great image and spot on to the feelings here of suspected betrayal. Nice write, and nice to see you post-

Thank you!
I appreciate the feedback. I haven't written much lately and this one was burning so much it just came out. I know feelings of jealousy/anger hurt like hell but at least I got some words for my trouble.

Way to go Nae!
Just peeked in to see what you guys have been up to lately, and what do I find?.....this absolute gem from you nae!! I see you haven't lost your touch, which is more than I can say for myself.

I'm sad to see so many familiar faces absent...could it be that our collective muses are vacationing together? In any event...this was a delight to read!

Love ya

hi nae
Hello nae, I know that voice... heard it many times, saddly. Great poem... maybe it will inspire me to get off my duff and write one again. Lord knows I need to.

But It Feels Right...
This is a very powerful statement, very concise, with just the right amount of conjecture to leave the meaning open to ones imagination, use good judgment in who or what you point that at.
