Image result for evil woman in painting

She’s beautiful, and would be my choice;

She’s beautiful, but I hesitate by that ugly voice.

How often do we experience the soul?

I do. When I look at a woman who is beautiful.

But then, I draw near, and before the soul makes a choice,

I listen to the soul—in the fearful particulars in the voice.

I know that sometimes the beautiful is a trick

To make use of me, to eat me, to kill me with a decorated stick.

The vines winding around the tree are snakes

And after the lovemaking the soul in terror wakes.

After the love flashes in the eye

The hand with the knife reaches around and you die.

The weeping love, the poem whispered in sorrow,

Is forgotten in laughter when I’m murdered tomorrow.

What is the soul? The soul is not the chosen, but the choice.

Who are you? That music. Where is it? What happened to your voice?

    Do you find it endearing, or kin to infection,
    When she ends ev’ry phrase with an uptalk inflection?

      The smile, the shine, the smoothness of the walk!
      And then…oh God…she began to talk…

    Skype has launched its website-dependent buyer beta towards the entire world, soon after introducing it generally in the Usa and U.K.
    before this month. Skype for Online also now facilitates Chromebook and Linux
    for instant text messaging conversation (no voice and
    video nevertheless, all those require a connect-in set up).

    The increase from the beta brings support for an extended listing of different languages to help reinforce that
    worldwide usability
