“A Poison Tree” by William Blake

I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow.

And I watered it in fears
Night and morning with my tears,
And I sunned it with smiles
And with soft deceitful wiles.

And it grew both day and night,
Till it bore an apple bright,
And my foe beheld it shine,
And he knew that it was mine,–

And into my garden stole
When the night had veiled the pole;
In the morning, glad, I see
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.

Venus Fly Trap

Her kiss was poison but no one would know

Those who dared

Those who tried

Never lived to tell about it

She was delicate and charming

But she hid a deadly secret

Many have failed

Still, many will try

But their demise will come sooner than they think

Poison

You pour your wine over

A glass or two and a hangover

You decide it’s late

You didn’t even call it a date

We smiled ever so fakely

My hands sweaty and shakely

Tried to reach out for you

But you left me hanging in the blue

I fell to the ground and realized

You got me hypnotized

But it was all for sure and no reason

Since it was love with a drop of poison

Toxic and Poison

I try to breathe but my lungs are burned

My eyesight is blurry

I can not see in front of me

and I feel weak

Slowly, I come in and out of consciousness

The clock is ticking and I pass out

Dark green at first then the world turned black

Blinded

Do we not see the poison that is eating our world?

It’s slowly creeping up yet we refuse to see

We turn away and shun all the obvious reasons

Blinded are we

NO!

We choose to be blind

We choose not to see

We refuse to believe

that the world is dying

That society has gone mad

That we are poisoning ourselves

Killing ourselves

We are the cause of our own destruction

We choose to be blind

and blinded we will remain

When will we accept the truth?

the fact?

that we are on the brink of extinction

From the cruelty that we have spawned

From the evil of our ways

Unless we come accept

we will forever roam in the dark

continue to be blinded by the poison

we ourselves have all become
