I want to make a feast out of you
your fat swollen chops would be great
nourishment for my lovesick mind
your savory lips pack the flaky crunch
that goes
perfectly with crimson molasses like my
dear honey bear draining the life out of its belly
oh yes! the belly!
my tongue yearns for medium rare sausages …
your tubular will do perfectly
fillets off your midsection
still fresh and perfect for sushi
won’t you say?
I can’t wait to get a bite out of you and
won’t you want a piece of me too?

We all have these things, that no one can see. They hold us down like anchors, they drown us out at sea.

Nice, reminds me of the effects of Bath Salts....

very creepy, disturbing, but meaningful. Like people are saying, I love how you add the slightest pinch of romance at the end, and it affects the whole poem, and you can vaguely determine what the character is like.  It was very creative !

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

This was a beautiful poem...very original. I loved how creative it was. You have great talent, but I think a better way to utilize it is to write about something meaningful. But, overall, it was an interesting, unique poem. I hope to hear more from you!
