Of Vices and Virtue

They say it's true
About vices and virtue
Of hot and cold

"All along it was a fever"

They say it's true
About saving grace
That certain crave
Of time
and place

"A cold sweat hot-headed believer"

It's delicious
The lies we tell ourselves
Simple sugars
a person's virtues

"I threw my hands in the air saying show me something.
He said if you dare come a little closer."

Intoxicated lies 
Sugar high
blood stained lips and alibis  
scratched backs 
claw of deceit
Sex as a treat

"It's not much of a life you're livin'
It's not just something you take-it's given
Round and around and around and around we go." 

Grasped my throat
That open grave
Victim to villian
Obscure by trade

"Oh the reason I hold on
Ooo cause I need this hole gone." 

Skin to fire
Weakness strung on delicate wire
Roles in switch
Now I'm the liar 

"Funny you're the broken one but I'm the only one that needed saving
Cause when you never see the light it's hard to know which one of us is caving." 

I came to you with roses in my hair
And you
You answered
There's no one there

"Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can't live without you
It takes me all the way." 

But in that moment,
I was both
vice and virtue

"I want you to stay." 

song used: "Stay" by Rihanna ft. Mikky Ekko


  1. I love that you're getting into poetry. Positive creative outlets ftw! :)
    This flows beautifully. I can imagine the song in my head, though I've never heard the one you used.

    1. I used to write when I was a teenager and I get these pieces of ideas randomly all the time and sometimes I wish I had written them down so I I'm going to a lot more now. There isn't always excitement in my life and this is a nice break.

      Thanks girl! I like getting feedback on them. :D

  2. Just lovely, these should be a weekly thing! ^ "Positive creative outlets ftw!" haha well said.
    Hope you are well, lots of love xx

    1. I want to make it a weekly thing! Sometimes I don't have anything new going on but feel like writing so this is a nice way to get some pent up emotion out. <3 I hope you are too girl!

  3. This is amazingly well written. I love it. You are such a phenominal writer!! I like the way you integrate lyrics with your poem!!
    If you would be postimg more of these, I would love to read them anytime! I always love finding other writers. Xx

    1. D'wahhh thanks love! I'll keep up the theme. Thanks for reading!

  4. Listened to the song, kinda cuts like a knife.
    "Funny you're the broken one but I'm the only one that needed saving"
    Yeah, that's pretty much how it went.

    1. Aw hun. I know it's hard right now but don't forget that I love you and I'm always here. This pain will pass, I promise.

  5. This is a beautiful composition. Stay strong!
