The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

by Angela Yuriko Smith

I can taste your love.

It rolls of my tongue, delicate

and rare. Like you, a morsel

like no other, a rare breed

that can only grow with your love

in your chest, in your heart meats and

when your heart meets my cleaver

we are both bathed in frissons of

ecstasy, nutrient dense joy

washing over us

soaking the substrate. 

I watch you shiver. I

Know you feel it too. 

My love for you consumes me

as I consume you.
