Love note: Eat puke!

Love to me is,

when I said I’d feed off anyone’s hand

and I didn’t mean yours.

So I say I love you because

I think maybe you wouldn’t want to hurt me
(What a tragedy.)

I couldn’t tell you,

but I can feel my skin bleeding marble and buzzing with white noise,

I’m cut-off cries and static,

a loose-wired run-out girl best suitable for tapping on the shoulder while I puke out my childish love to you

and I know you’d never reciprocate it and never consider me an equal again. (If you ever did so in the first place.)

I don’t blame you. After all, who wants to eat love with an aftertaste of puke?

Hi Henna,
I love this. At first, I laughed hard at the title.
Just a little info, Puke – if we will read it, as a Filipino, in our own dialect Tagalog. It means female sex organ. “Eat Puke”

    That made me laugh out loud! I had no ides, but you know, it adds another dimension to the piece doesn’t it? I’m glad you liked it and thanks for commenting!
