i was all sex and stitches
with every color on a TV screen;

(and between me and you)
your teeth, your tongue,
your ferret-hands and knowledgeable mind--
they scared me.

the foreign worlds beneath your skin:
the contortions of your spine and
organs;

you wanted to conquer; to claim
and plant a flag--

and i--i wanted cancer
.

:glomp: Ah, stop it. You don't have to fav; just knowing that someone enjoys my poetry is a miracle to me. :XD: It's really rather a strange feeling, to know that people love something you made.

I like the imagery in this one too. The last line seems a bit out of place, but I'm sure there's probably a reason behind it. Lovely work. :)

i... i don't think i fully understand the poem, or it's message, i may not even have the slightest idea of what it's truly about... but it touched me anyway :)

Well, it's nice to hear I had enough force to make an impact, even if the meaning is blurred. :la:

it's quite possible that the meaning will become suddenly clear to me in the morning- but i must admit i've been in the strangest of moods today, and hardly anything's been making sense :)
i guess it depends if you wanted the poem to have a definite meaning, or would like it to be interpreted. i think the hesitation... and i thought i read fear...
but then maybe i'm just implanting my own feelings onto the poem right now ^^;
