Let me step
Inside the hell
That lives within
The outer shell
Of you, I love
And for whom I’d lay
My own life down
To keep you safe
Let me fight
On your behalf
When the demons raise
Their heads and laugh
Together we can
Put to rest
The haunts that taunt
And leer and jest
Because these two hearts
Beating strong
Can kill that which
Would kill just one
So when I come
And knock for you
Let me in
To fight for you.

  1. Reblogged this on Spunkypedia and commented:
    Felicity Johns does many things besides poetry, on her blog. The theme of her blog is dark, sinister even, like it is some boudoir from the dark ages, filled with sin.

    You would think that if you clicked on one of her pieces it would be an effort to find the convoluted meanings. But her poems stand out, at once clear in their simplicity and down to earth, filled to the brim with all sorts of emotions – desire, pity, despair, love.

    Felicity Johns makes my heart skip a beat. For a 60-year old, this is not good. I have asked my attorneys to prepare a claim for damages in case I get a cardiac arrest and I’m found in front of my computer with her blog open. (Kidding). πŸ˜€

    1. LMAO! This is awesome! Thanks very much, sir, I’m touched by your kind words. But I’ve been responsible for enough deaths, so keep the paddles close, would you? πŸ˜‰ And many thanks for the reblog. Hugs!
