Selachian by:eddy styx


Selachian
By Eddy Styx

for too long now
have I lived with the
bitter wound eternally festering
carcinoma in the cockles
of your heart
blind with an unrelenting
Judas Complex
Serrated edges of promises broken
shattered in the jaws
of your decayed lying
sharp-as-splinters teeth
you've taken your bites out of me
your love has changed me
transposed me redisposed me
that's my beating heart
lying on the tiles of the kitchen floor
yet you smile as lie upon lie
clings to your enticing lips
breathlessly I kiss the deceit
from that cool cherry-ripe mouth
greedily gobbling
your toxic candied kisses
while you scoop out my spleen!

*selachian
se•la•chi•an [s? láykee ?n] noun
marine fish: a fish that belongs to the order that includes all sharks, rays, and skates. Order: Selachii

              Great Work Eddy - might try to include the word 'selachian' into casual conversation. You learn something new every day.

                ever, eddy

                Sometimes, but not every time, a little hurt in love is a good thing especially when you can give back as good as you get - eat his heart out.... Lovely work. Joe
