Eat Me!

Serve flesh ribbons from deep within my chest
Feast on meat strands, if that's what you deem best
'Guess I'm no more than a caged animal
A beast of a meal for you, the cannibal

Tears ripple torment and ebb agony
I suffocate in airs of ebony
While ivory shrapnel scatters and slivers
Echoing memories you'll never deliver

Pull another heart string far as you can
Rip it out with your clenched and trembling hands
The love I gave, you didn't't seduce or steal
Here I lay, dear, just another meal

So let your teeth tear my heart to shreds
And when you smile, I'll see just where I've bled

If you want to reach a mental picture you need to feel the rage not in portrait but in comparison, the rage is the meat you as a sexual flavor of the day, not a participant but a victim, wiling to give to be accepted, need to reach climax in a less violent way. Still and emotion write

And Anthony... what can I do to make it more than a three star rating poem? I highly value your opinion!

        04-29-2006     Mary -BrytEyz- Ball        

Leigh, nope. I meant bled... as in past tense. But thanks for the suggestion. Any others? I'm all ears!

I can't even imagine what in your life caused you to write a poem like this, but it must have been bad. The emotion is raw and brutal; the imagery frightening.
I'm pretty sure you're a happy person now; I sure hope so.
All the best,

I was wondering about this one from the title... I wasn't sure what to except, but I certainly didn't except this! This was a good piece, and we all feel like this sometimes. Heartbreak and pain are emotions we all go through time after time. This was a good piece, and the overall idea for the main metaphors was a creative one. Sorry for such a short comment, but I'm supposed to be doing a report's that for concentration? Good work, keep writing! Oh, and in the last line, do you mean bleed?

Does cheese come on that? This is a very funny piece to read. I bet it wasn't a great feeling then. You live and learn, but I seem also to have to learn some things over and over again! Good write, Anthony

I came back to re-read this peice. Ya know what? I'm a sucker! I fall for the same shit, just on a different day. Well, with eye lids wide open (propped open with tooth pics if need be) I'll forge on and forward. I'll keep my eyes peeled for the same stench and try to avoid it before stepping in the dang pile of it. Ugh! (All figurative here folks).

And yes, this pain was real when I wrote it... and for some odd reason, refreshes itself each time I read this to see if I can or should try to improve on it.

I never seem to think of anything to add to or take from it, but it sure has a way of affecting me when I come back to read it.

Tho I'm glad it touches you all, I sincerely hope it doesn't affect you the way it does me. It's like opening the wound anew.

Take care all,

Wow Mary! I hope no one truly hurt you like this and that it is mostly from imagination. If they did, my heart goes out to you. In any case, it is a very powerful poem with at least the force of a level 5 tornado. Great write here!

Mary, that is an incrediably powerful, symbolic poem and has become my favourite of yours! Well done!

I'm not bitter, am I? *Sweet smile* Thanks all for reading!!!

Very very emotional and elicits deep reactions. Good one, Mary
