Bon Appétit




Oh, you know her and have seen her wandering eyes

Her fidgeting chest carrying a half palpitating heart

Half of it is already so numb, more over thwart

Soul dripping in ink too dark to make a baffled note

If she writes, muddled letters stain the spotless sheet

She artlessly leaves a mark where ever she steps,

But...Alas, as fate would have it

Renaissance never followed, what follows is only dearth

Vulnerability is so juicy,

Melting on your tongue, as

Mozzarella on pizza crust

Little Cherub becomes a malicious mammoth,

Cheesecake so richly silk to make you hover

Don't tell me that you have no desire to taste it

You know it shall rouse your dead leach senses

Instigate you

Entice you

Incite you

Linger to your sedated mind, enveloping it in a cocoon of succulent pleasure

Chef-d'oeuvre, a magnificent feast to dine upon

Be an unprejudiced basilisk, suck away all her aching breaths, but,

Look for the juice dripping from your smoldering smirking lips

For staining the chenille might leave a sign of your scrupulous sin

Do let me know once you are done with that aphrodisiac THING

Is she still taking that vicious agony stricken lurching Breaths in?

Is she still alive?

Anyways, Bon Appétit...

  ***Chef d'oeuvre- a masterpiece
      Chenille- velvety fabric
      Cherub-an innocent child looking angel with wings
      Basilisk- a mythical reptile whose look or breath could kill***
