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?

Very cool. It conjures a vision of desparation and a distinctly disturbed mind. I love it.

It is very unique, something I strive for, and though it was disturbing I'm sure that was intended. :) Very Hannibal Lector.

I like the premise, but it's not a very sophisticated piece of writing.

I'm kind of confused on the meaning of the poem. Even though it kept me wanting more, I was still confused on what you were meaning to talk about in the poem.

People want to know why I do this, why I write such gross stuff. I like to tell them I have the heart of a small boy... and I keep it in a jar on my desk.

Now that we're here,
It's so far away
All the struggle we thought was in vain
All the mistakes,
One life contained
They all finally start to go away
Now that we're here its so far away
And I feel like I can face the day
I can forgive and I’m not ashamed to be the person that I am today

love this poem, love how it explains even the worst of people can fall in love its also dark and mysterious lol i luv yer poem!
