Tantalus

I want to hang above you.
Breasts out.
Shoulders back.
You reach out and a rope pulls me away,
pulled by an invisible
rope-puller.

I want you to watch as others touch me.
Bare neck.
Smooth thighs.
The jealousy and desire unbearable,
you writhe in eternal
torture.

Wrongs needn't be righted,
shouldn't need to be righted.

It's in my head,
but it's no use.
I want vengeance.


No matter how much I love you,

I want to hurt you

so badly

just once

to even

the score.

  1. Hello favourite.

    I have a new blog that's much, much better than this one: Geist Bites.

    If you get a chance, have a look; if you like it, subscribe; if you're full of Christmas cheer, spread the word!

    Stay cool. Merry XXXmas.
