Narcissist - Poem by Fox Everett

I'll start sketching a blueprint the instant I wake
Of all you can give me and all I can take.

In your taut canvas cheeks, smeared charcoal black
I see potential, if I could only just sap
That unseemly defiance
Tainting those pretty insomniac eyes—
Defiling those sweet violet petal-ringed eyes.

In my captive embrace your bones groan and break,
I do it to see if you'll bleed for my sake.

    I like the display of pride, selfishness and struggle here, another good product from this industry.... (Report)Reply
