Lovesick – Audio by BitterSweetVerse

One of my Dverse Poets Pub friends, BittersweetVerse, always tells me when she has read my poems aloud.  I told her I’d be honoured to have her read one of my poems.  I told her to go through my archive and choose one.  So, she chose LoveSick.

I took ages to figure out how to embed this clip… I still can’t get it done how I want, where you can see the Soundcloud waveforms in the post itself… but if you click the title of the poem above a new window will open and you can hear her lovely rendition of my poem.

If someone can help me embed the Soundcloud here, I would be most grateful…. *hint hint*

Here is the SoundCloud of Madame SweetCheeks doing my poem  LoveSick

Please go over to her blog(s)  – click on her name above and on her Blogspot blog under her other pseudonym – Madame Sweet Cheeks.

Now that I’ve figured it out, here is my own version of Lovesick…

And if you want to read along ….


I get drunk off your essence
Your presence leaves me high
Floating on air
I swear you leave me in
An altered reality
Another galaxy
When I’m with you I see small ants
Clearly defined
My vision’s refined to the accuracy
Of an eagle’s
Every angle sharp enough
To cut like a well honed blade
My love for you has made me weak
Made me seek after you
Needing another shot
Another hit
Another fix…..
You leave me battling kites for space
I’m in another time, another place
So, tell me again, if you leave me so high
Tell me why
You’ve gone and cut off my drug’s supply
And now
I’m shaking
Faking happiness till I can draw you in again
So hurry back
And feed my lovesickness…
