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. :)

no exactly, I do the same thing. I write for my own needs, it's not selfish it's healthy!!
