Confessions of an Alien Housewife

Updated on June 19, 2013

Some new excuse to use:


Something special offered you:

An urgent need to me:



I touch upon your soul:


I draw you to my world:


So meaningful to you:


One more spirit in this web:

my fallacy.


Disregard the cost to you:


My course, ever the same:


No thought to the price I pay:


No surprise what this amounts:

      I loved the structure of this poem and the way each part is summarized. Great job on word play and it left me wondering if you are the good guy or the bad one?? :) Well written voted up and interesting... and that is a good thing :)
