April’s PAD – Day One

April 2, 2014

Two for Tuesday Prompt: Write a beginning poem. Write an ending poem.

Beginnings and Endings

I was bone-white and hollow
when we began — a new vessel
you filled with lies so sweet
I lost teeth over you —
You taught me to sashay my hips
to lift my chest up to the sun
and smiles so fake my face broke
You wanted them all jealous
old and young — I was starved
I ate and ate and ate
’til my belly was bloated
and then I spat you out

I was bone-weary and empty
when she found me — rock solid
that she picked away at day by day
’til I slowly opened up to her
She taught me to thrust out my hips
to lift my head high to the sun
and smiles so confidant my face glowed
No longer starved, I learned to savor
to let time melt on desert sands
I lingered, lingered
’til her blood was my lifeblood
and then I sucked her in
