He would wash her tender skin
Shade her from the harsh sun
Sing to her in the cold night
Care for her as he cared for no one else

Then one fateful morning came
He brought her inside the house
He grabbed her and sank his teeth deep into her skin
A red liquid dripped from his chin

After his deed, a tear fell from his face
It was there that he realized
No one would ever love him
As much as he had loved his dear tomato

This piece was inspired by a game I played with a few of my friends. We would take turns making poems and deciding the topic for the next person's. I happend to get tomatoes. Combining that theme with my love to mislead people, this poem was born. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

At first it seemed like you were on the whole "vampire" bandwagon, but it turned into a tomato... Very creative. Alittle misdirection never hurt anyone. Great job!
