Making Someone Love You How-To (All You Need is a Syringe and the Sun)

I took a heat-resistant syringe
and drained the sun,
every last ounce
of the core
of her
& as you slept like the heaviest of stones,
I entered through your mid-agape chamber
window with the stealth of a succubus,
and gently jabbed your aorta with it,
eradicating your heart-walls
with pure flame.
maybe when the morn-sounds
‘waken you
you’ll give me a call
via telephone or telepathy
and tell me you love me
without  hints of mind-
game tarnishing your
sacred words
or perhaps you’ll
be too scorching hot
and bothered,
burnt out to a crisp–
In that case,
I’ll come over later
and plant a kiss
on your

you know where

  1. Were it not for lack of oxygen and the broken ache of time, the very core of this would be melting in your hand. Cold as ice, born of the sun a glowing coal piercing your heart and ebullition through the darkness deep into your quivering soul.


I value your thoughts. :)
