~Cactus~

I'm like a cactus when you are around,
planted and rooted deep in the ground.
All thorny and spiked and protected,
a shield to a heart you've affected.

Blowing sand in your angry eyes,
for all the times you ignored my pleaing cries.
In this dry desert heat......
this time I won't be beat.

I am in a world in which you can't live,
I'm thirsty for a love you can't give.
Lifeless land surrounding......
echoes of your hatred pounding.

Sun so strong it's blinding,
a life without you I am finding.
Heat on your back, blistering your skin,
This time,....I won't let you win!!!

*This is a bit elementary (the language) but hey ,...you know?...Some days it's just like that for ya.

Some days, yes it is Spitfire. . .

This is a great poem. . . I'm sure that we've all felt this way sometimes. . .

Well, aren't we feeling 'prickly' tonight?
LOL !

I liked the 'elementary' elements.
Don't EVER apologize for your poetry, my friend.

WOW...don't apologize my friend, thats what poetry is all about. Everyone has different styles and different ways of expressing their feelings and thats what you've done here. I say go for it, keep it up
