Take A Bite - Poem by Viola Grey

Ah...come closer...hear my tale...

'Twas last night
as I took a bite
I became witness
to this bleak delight...

As I was drinking
he lay thinking,
mind, heart racing
in his dark fright...

Wriggled, squirmed,
hooked little worm,
he revealed to me
his soul...

Black, so black,
shamelessly he lacks
gentle human love,
born so cold...

Took from life
his lovely wife
set her soul alight...
oh, and her body...

So, in delight
I took his life,
which burns his soul
inside of me.

Thank you for listening...sure you won't come closer?

    I can't work out whether this is sinister or sexy....
    Both, I think. I also think that there is more than a little Stephen King in you!

    hey i really love the first bit Twas last night as i took a bite i became witness to this bleak delight.

    the really great thing about this poems is that you use soft words like delight
    yet i think the poem to me has got a lot of darkness in it.
    i just think thats clever well done.
