Languishing in the House of Desire II a poem by RestLeSsD

I suppose you think I wait for you?
You suppose that this is all I do.
Do I spend my time
Just waiting to see.
Whilst you spend your time
Away from me>

Ah, silly boy you are mistaken
Tis not my heart that you have taken.
My heart is not for you to hold
You’ve lost that right, if truth be told.

I prefer the silence of forgotten pain
No longer will I allow hurt to gain
A hold upon my head and heart
I will stop that aching before it starts.

I say these words to remind myself
That no man shall put me upon a shelf.
I will not allow these dreams of fire
As if languishing in this house of desire.

Hello, I am Rhonda aka RestLeSsD & I am a graphic & web designer. My main media is Photoshop & Dreamweaver. I create 3D art & images using Fractals from Incendia & Apophysis. I use these in my creations formed in PS. I also use Picture Window Pro and Paint Shop Pro.
I am also a poet & I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. Since being here on the Bubble I have fulfilled my goal of illustrating my poetry & writing as well as writing new works…
