Poem: Caustic

chemical edge
clinical tone
biting away
soft outer shell
peel it right back
raw flesh beneath
see how it bleeds
making me scream
sweet agony
you remind me
every bedtime
taking your fill
what doesn’t kill
makes you stronger
there is no growth
without my pain
you gift to me
slicing down deep
saying again
better to give
than to receive
you give it all
don’t hold it back
better for me
these marks i bare
bruises and wounds
are just a sign
of your true love
caring for me
the alcohol
of your kisses
keeping me pure.

the minutes pass
like forever
then you are done
in your blue eyes
whisper to me
your blessed words:

“you should be happy
I keep you alive”.

Oh and i am
these tears of joy
drift me to sleep
as your greatness
oozes back out
between my legs.


Shall we have a conversation?
