i am
a taxidermy fawn,
existing yet comatose,

my soul flickers within a lantern,
releasing a smoke with the scent of
pheromones and vanilla verbena,  

but your necromantic whispers
linger in my ears,
so sweet and succulent as peaches,

animalistic instincts
give me breath,
filling my lungs upon a full moon,
oh i'd so like to take a bite of you,

you and your jungle bred lips,
tropical to taste,
organic to kiss,

jaguar, leopard spots
cover your skin
in patterns painted by the forest,

then a low, throaty growl
slips from your jaw,
haunting me like a past mistake,

but you are wild bamboo
and the sound of my heart beating,
palpitating against soft winters,
pulsing with the rhythm of summer,

for some reason you suit me
in all seasons,

and like gravity
you hold me
down,

so no, i cannot escape you,
for no one can bypass
an autumnal equinox
or an eclipse of the sun,

you only continue to
kindle the flames
you used my wooden ribs to make

and i truly love
that searing sensation in my gut,
because if i'm going to burn,
i'd want you to be the fire
that drew my skin into ashes.

i can't describe how i feel when i'm around him so this is me trying.

What a brilliant poem. It is so dark, yet, isn't that what these kind of emotions provoke?
