Stopping by Her on a Hungry Evening


[Day 20 of the 31 Days of Poetry]








Seeing you across the square
Cannot help but stop and stare
Heart begins to skip a beat
Electric current in the air


Appearing good enough to eat
Delectable and tartly sweet
You can feel my growing need
Flushing red and rising heat


Reaching you with desperate speed
Paying consequence no heed
You will be my greatest sin
On your body I will feed


You are ready to begin
Liquid fire from within
Taste the night upon your skin
Taste the night upon your skin
