Burning House of Love

On a cloud of romantic ecstasy she floats
to a land of pink plaid polka dots and pretty little girly things.
Now blinded by her own ambition for
a love on grounds so intoxicatingly high
she forgets the important
logical things about life.
Like turning off the iron.

thanks for commenting Maxximmuss

Your first two stanzas distacted me by getting me to think this was going to be another adolescent pining-away-for-lost-love kind of thing.  As soon as you got me close enough & lowered my defenses, you stab me in the neck with the last line.  Cool!  Now pass me a band-aid.

no comments homies?

I suggest changing L5 'pretty' to 'scented', thus tying in the last line.

Otherwise this is short and sweet, well done.

corvus, where'd your poems go dude?

thanks b00, but i think i will keep L5 as is. thanks for taking the time anyhow.

A house of love built upon deception and unfaithfulness will soon tumble down.

good insight.
 — SweetPain

It's good, I like it, but in line five, "girly things" doesn't seem to fit.
 — ashley87

suggestions ?
because, personally i dont find that to be a weak point in the poem.
thanks for taking the time though ashley87!
