The Cruelness of Pygmalion

I let this happen
Why do I allow the callous
flourishes of love seduce me
and open me for disappointment
Just leave me
let me go

Away from here
where you are Pygmalion
and I am your statue -
Allowing you to mould
me into your creation
of me
Keeping up the facade
but too exhausting
The rawness of my unfinished being
allows me to feel intensely
saddens quickly
and love so deeply
How can I change that now…

callous flourishes of - I love that.  Quite a twist on the old story of Pygmalion - I can understand the award.

Beautifully written and belated congratulations on your award.

Ah, yes!  I'd give you an award for this one myself!  The truth is raw, and the content is so Adri!  Whether the seducer or the seduced, in both victory and defeat, your writes are so romantic, hon.  You have a very romantic heart.  And that is not a bad thing at all, though it may seem so at times...

You have made yourself sound like one of those slaves of Michael Angelo struggling, half-finished, out of a block of marble - they are astounding accidental masterpieces.


Sorry I did not congratulate you lst month on this. Well Done.

It is often difficulte to change the course of love.

Its waves blows you beyond expected directions.

Anyway, thats the way love goes.

I don't know. Sometimes I think we're just puppets and anyone who comes along with the right set of words and gestures is allowed to pull the strings. Well done, Adri. Very. ML

Wonderfully expressed, the pain that rides alongside love too often.

A true work of art are your poems Adri.

A real pleasure to read poetry such as yours,
Thanks for sharing...

Wonderful imagery from silken words that move softly across the page. 

Comment By: FreeCathy on September 15, 2008 11:26:06 AM Report
A very sad write here, love the use of the Greek King in mythology who fell in love the goddess Aphrodite and then made a statue of her. Perfect comparison,  love that is carved in stone as a statue is a cold and uncaring love and yes a love where you truly feel trapped.. Excellent write here really enjoyed my read.
