Incorruptible... A poem by Bea :)
Incorruptible by Bea

Throw 'em down or double down, it's all the same to me
I'll own a slight advantage, this ain't my reality
I'm not the game you asked for, not the rules you knew
There's a hidden hand at work to make a game of me and you.

Yeah, you sold me down the river flush with bitter misery
Isolation, love, becomes me in more ways than you can see
But I'll raise you double nothing and never blink an eye
The stakes seem too important to allow us room to lie.

I saw the game before you.
You could say I see straight through you.

So now I'm the one just sitting here waiting
I hear you talking in circles with nothing to say
But the rush of the flush has got me thinking
This is the hand I was meant to play
And there's never been nothing that you wanted so much
You say you'd tear it all down for just a single touch

I'm the one, I'm the one, but I'm not the one for you.

They say when dancing with the devil, the devil changes you
As you can see I'm not affected so that story can't be true
Or did you tell it backward to hide the lies you've told
Thinking I would never discover the lies you've sold?

You shake your head and tell me that I've got the story wrong
But look into my eyes and see what I've known for so long
There's an angel and a devil used to push us to and fro
But in games with odds like this, I'll choose the devil that I know.

I wrote the script we're playing
You should see what they're all saying.

So now I'm the one here sitting here waiting
Got the hand of all lifetimes and I'm calling your bluff
I see you wet from the sweat, lip all a'trembling
Are my games a bit too rough?
And there's never been nothing you'd compare to this
You say you'd tear it all down for just a single kiss.

I'm the one, I'm the one, but I'm not the one for you.

You're all in now
You're wondering how
Killing sacred cows
My secret, special tao

When you sat down to the table, you were conceited, convinced
And you thought you could play me, but there's something you missed
I own a soul that's suffered and let it all go
You came here playing God and left a devil that I know.

Great work Bea.


A bit of interest to note, I saw this on the bathroom wall my first day of selling this week:

"It's hard to dance with the Devil on your back"

Your poem reminded me of it.



Reminded me a bit of this as well...



Never let em see you sweat.

Ok, will do, Dion... this one sounds romantic and girly, but it's more about the war of the sexes due to lack of understanding... Think Mother and Father... I named it Ariel's Lament due to the first line mirroring the Hans Christian Anderson sad version of the Little Mermaid.

Ariel's Lament

So hard to walk out in this world, each step is pain
But there's a thing about the dance that makes us dance again
I'd give the world to show you, but I can't feel you anymore
Didn't think the world would fail you and take me for the whore.
The wide and daunting road ahead feels false and I'm afraid
I don't have the voice to beg you and no time left for masqurade
You always said I lacked the foresight to know what I had done
And you always had the insight to see just what we'd become
But you never felt the freedom of the wind upon your skin
You watched and never walked it, always thought it was a sin
If I thought you'd learned the lesson of a love that's given free
I would drag down all the heavens just to bring you back to me.

Someone left me karma my poem was too long, lmao. Uh... really? I didn't know there was a standard length for poetry, lol. Wonder if anyone ever told the greats that... not that I'm a great one, but still... Kind of humorous, lol.

If you accept the devil’s invitation to dance, don’t complain if he steps upon your toes with a cloven hoof. He’ll only laugh. devil6

I liked your poem; the structure held your narrative together well. I’m afraid I get bogged down when I try writing poems much longer than a haiku. Perhaps we should start a poetry thread?
