Eat My Heart

By Hands_Around_My_Throat

Throw me to the floor,
Overwhelmed with need.
Make me scream, make me yours,
-or let me take the lead.

You're in my head,
in so many ways.
Let's stay in bed,
and play for days.
Words are so weak,
let your actions shine.
If what you seek,
is to remain mine.

Love is just so complicated,
God, it hurts and I just hate it.
Sex is easy when compared,
But I'm just so damn ensnared.
And When you're body is above me,
And you whisper that you love me,

It feels right.

Stop it.

Love may be a word- but it is so much more.
And I love you like I've loved none before.
And I just don't want to love you more.
Than you'll ever love me.

[Press me down - Undress me now.]

Tell me that I'm just a whore.
So I won't love you anymore.
Because I'm so loney,
but that isn't the only,
thing wrong with me.

[You see]

My heart is in pieces,
Devoured in hours.

[Yes, But,]

A bit too bitter, a bit too tart.
They said my heart
Was never quite right.
Baby do you want a bite?

Eat my heart, it's okay.
I don't want it anyway.

    Good poem. Your right some people say I love you before they even take the time to really know you. I really like those last two lines.

    Finding someone who treats us right can be a challenge. Love always has pain because we are imperfect beings, but we have to learn where obsession beings and love ends.

    Another amazing piece. I love how the ending wraps it all up beautifully. "A bit too bitter, a bit too tart. They said my heart Was never quite right. Baby do you want a bite?" definitely my favorite part.

    God, I hate love. It always turns to hatred and emptiness. I'd rather be a whore than to have my soul rubbed raw. Thank you for the beautiful write

    profound in its depth, some like it hot and some like it????? well, some don't even know how to at times! so all in all, love is more than an act, gesture, or words, its unconditional. truly blessed to find that. I agree with Dwells. yet, can't say I felt the same way some years ago, its confusing.

    Don't want to love you more than you love me - why and how do you quantify? Very profound statement. Don't confuse sex with love, and then let me know how it's done cerebrally, cheers!

    Sometimes someone can take your heart when you do not even want to give it...... Nicely penned and expressed.
