She
devoured
my heart
in one slow,
satisfying gulp.

I heard it plunge
into the gaping
emptiness of her.

She
drank the sun
from my fingertips,
licked me from her lips,
& said

"Rose petals
look better dead, plucked
from your November pores."

I cringed.

"They go down smoothest
with Writers Tears."

I think about this poem a lot. It really left an impression on me. I just love the imagery and the description and the words used. I'm not even sure how to explain it but i just really adore this poem. :heart:
