21 (who?)

i want you like i want succulent strawberries dripping over a white lacy dress,
i want you like i want complete silence on a sweltering august night,
i want you like it's dead rats melting over hot gutters and then it's your hot guts on my body.

i want you and your collarbones tied to my strings of saliva,
i want you smelling like you're some wild wolverine with incisors as sharp as rose petals,
i want you broken and bleeding just so i can nourish your wounds.

i want you dangerously close and always so,
i want you angry as you are passionate,
i want you in ways i don't even understand.

i want you for completely unreasonable reasons

Ugh I can relate, my brain has been in revolt for awhile and is trying to steer me the right way.

It's a bit confusing, stressful but understandable. You know what's right and what's wrong. But can you really help it? I guess you can try.

Beautiful piece.
Thanks! I'm so glad you can relate, and it is definitely stressful! There's all that pent up emotion but you know you shouldn't do anything about it. Damn!

I know this feeling so well, it really hits close to home.
I love your imagery and symbolism. this is a truly heartbreaking and beautiful poem.
I can feel the desperation dripping from your words. <3
Thank you so much, I am so glad you can relate! I feel like I'm going crazy over someone completely wrong for me and it's so hard to get it through my own head that that there are better people out there that are worth waiting for.

I've learned from my own situations that sometimes you just have to accept the pain and continue trying to live life to the fullest. It will be hard and hurt so bad at first, but if you let it keep you from living then you'll never move on. Your better someone or something will come along soon enough to rescue you. <3
Even then, it still won't be easy. there will always be residual feelings. But I put that under the category of "Life experience"
We have to go through hard times, it's what shapes us most as people. :)
That is exactly what I needed to hear! Thank you!
I definitely agree that it's the difficult times that shape us and make us stronger and wiser. Moving on, moving forward, and living in the moment!

:) I'm glad I could say something to help. I know it can be so hard to work through something like this. Sometimes all you need to help you keep fighting is to hear someone tell you that it'll be okay. <3
A very great poem! It brings up strong imagery and is very descriptive! It's really well written. Great job!!!
Thank you so much :heart:
