Hear me read it!

In debris beside your house
there's the rotting stench of home,
where all the ghosts of lovers
and their broken chances go.

You smile at me, I shiver.
I taste your tongue on mine.
There's no dead for the sympathy
as you trespass bound'ry lines.

In the broken bulb of midnight
when the caskets rock to sleep
there beneath the soil bed
you lay me down, I weep.

You smile at me, I wonder
as you pin me underneath
if you know how I wish that I
were six feet more beneath.

In the soiled marital bed
where pigs and otters go to lie
you grunt your way to release
the only release I want, is to die.
Consummation, the act of having sex to seal the deal of marriage - or an experience of being unwillingly consumed. You decide.

This is a great piece of poetry.  I can relate in a way.  Makes me sad, but that just means you did a good job writing it.
:tighthug: Thank you so much

I am awestruck and, therefor, can come up with nothing great to say other than that this piece is disturbingly superb.:clap:
Aw, thank you! For superb and disturbing :D As now I know people are really understanding it

When I read this, I thought it read somewhat like a murder ballad, until I got to the last two stanzas. In response to your question, the answer is yes. The deal is sealed...and she is consumed in turn.
Nods.. for me its not about two different topics, its about one situation that involves both. you know.

Yeah, I get what you mean. This one was powerful, as always with your work.
