look

(back)

By Sara Published 4 months ago 1 min read

you didn’t even

look back.

if you did

you’d see

hollow eyes

wild with fire

lips kissed by

gun powder

and a heart

that beats

for you.

what do you

call love

when only i

give it

and you suck

it off my tits,

wipe your mouth

and look away.

maybe stupidity?

but i forget

to think

when your fingers

draw dreams

on my skin

and the world

feels like you are

all of it.

so i made you

all of it.

served my soul

on an altar

slit my throat

because isn’t it all about

sacrifice?

so poetic.

until you left me

to bleed dry

walked away

and didn’t even look

back.

    Wowser. Just. wowser, lol. there are so many powerful bits to this. I love the itallic sarcasm of "so poetic" in an angry, sad poem, that made me grin a little. You are always so expressive and not afraid to say things people would often shy away of it, and it makes your writing so special and so yours. :)

  • That's what people do when we're too kind. Loved your poem!
