I could speak of her in riddles,
in aged, anatomy textbook terminology-
but, I wont.

You see, I cuffed this angel to my bedpost.
I sank my teeth into feathers she wore like a cage
and asked if I was dreaming, because Love,
you're not holding me. If you only knew the you in my head,
every night--tearing with these heavenly fingers
at the cracks in my sanity- you would allow me this!

Her tongue tastes my tears; nails clawing, clawing, clawing-
she takes away my pain,
but she doesn't belong to me either.

"We are but wolves.
Tell me, what does my blood taste like?"
I've been missing a couple of weeks haven't I?

This girl keeps showing up in my dreams, again.
Writing her out.

No, no! I am in no way a poetry teacher!
I never even learned much about it in school,
besides the basics: Poe, Shakespeare, Frost. lol
I'd love to take a class though! <3

I think it's because I write whatever I want.
And if someone doesn't like it, oh well.
I don't write to please anyone but myself.
That might sound rude, but it's how I've learned to survive writing this long. :)

Tell me wh does my blood taste like?
Brilliant! It's not 'depressing' or even saddening in the slightest; it's not hopeful nor is it simple happy. It seems to be a mixture of good and bad, and yet not neutral...the only word I have for it is simply 'beautiful' C:

I'm very glad you're back; your poetry is always the greatest joy to devour! NOMNOMNOM! read!

What an intense poem! I like how you contrasted the physical bonds of the girl with your character's own emotional 'cuffs.' "If you only knew the you in my head...tearing with these heavenly fingers at the cracks in my sanity..." was the peak for me, the very best part of the accumulating angst. You wrote an excellent poem!
