(1792-1822 / Horsham / England)

Attention Seeker

You will see me on the street
You will fall in love with me,
You will want me to be apart of you
You will call me coz you think you need me.
Am an attention seeker.
Am a virus.

I will not promise you love
I will not promise you anything,
But i'll promise not to leave you.
My need for u will grow
And i'll put an anchor in you.
Am an attention seeker.
Am a virus.

I'll take over your entire body
I'll flow in your blood,
From your brain cells to your feet
You would not imagine life without me.
Am an attention seeker.
Am a virus.

Slowly i'll detoriorate you
I'll take all the love you had away,
I'll slowly take away anythg you felt
And day by day you will learn to resent me.
Then evntually want to let me go.
Am an attention seeker.
Am a virus.

But now is when i love you more
This is when i want more of your attention,
But you cant give it any more
Coz slowly i killed you.
Am an attention seeker.
Am a virus.

A beautiful work by Shelley... interwoven with life!
When I arose and saw the dawn, I sighed for thee; When light rode high, and the dew was gone, And noon lay heavy on flower and tree, And the weary day turned to his rest, Lingering like an unloved guest, I sighed for thee.- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -Percy Shelley could write extraordinarily beautiful verses that just rest into your heart and soul like a prayer or a lullaby.
A very good articulated piece of poetry! Well done keep on writing my friend ✏📝💭📒
Weary of the day's unwelcome state and not bothered about death so soon, Shelley calls for the night to accompany him and invites night spirit to come soon! Yet another poem of the romantic hero is wonderful to read here!
Mystery of Night and death still remains same
