Rookie - 12 Points (New Zealand)

Devoured


Diminished
Skeletal and naked
I am now only candlelit bones
Mere scrap of a voluptuous feast
I had served with my best china

You my guest dined and fled
With all the silver
Consumed
In your haste to alienate
An emotional plate
I am swiftly scraped
Clean

Even now
Down the bulimic drain
Your hurt hurts me
My body waste disposes
Sewage from a compost
Of rancid depression and rage
As your chewing enzymes bite
Caustic from your heart

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
