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.
