I can see your soul
in the dark pit of despair, my love…
you have a demon lurking.
Sweat drops in rivulets of panic
staining your face with guilty roadmaps;
crisscrossing your haughty cheeks.
I gave you my faith – you whispered a cursed prayer,
condemning me to the eternal flames
of your vile inequities.
How could I not see the beast
raging within your tender breasts;
the sharpened fangs masquerading as nipples
glistening in the dark?
Your undulating hips covered in thorns,
your lying lips sweetened with vinegar.
Your reddening eyes, beacons of hate.
Just what is you think I’ve found?
Something deep and dark and inviting
despite the screaming in my brain –
I have no voice but to consent, not thought but to obey.
Don’t torture yourself with hungered thoughts;
devour me as your wicked appetite compels.
but please, spit out my bones for Heaven’s sake.
