Razor-Sharp Love - Poem by Alexander Shaumyan

razor-sharp love
I want
all of you
but there just isn't
enough of you
behind the silk
like a bullet in my heart
you poison my soul
with your horrible longing
you terrify
and immerse me
into your darkness
a fleeting memory
of your caressing tongue
on my chest
that's what you are
a black veil of
loneliness.

    All your poems are a cut above the rest but, this one is of particular sharpness. I can feel it. >.<
