When A Scorpio ♏eets A Taurus ♡ (p♉em)

You drank
scorpion venom
and lived
Then coughed it up
and french-
kissed me
That was the first blood-
red flag I missed.
I’ve never been much of a bull at heart
despite what the stars say,
Crimson chromas don’t faze me

*I’m not a Taurus by the way, I’m a Leo. I just wanted to write a poem about two star sign opposites.

    1. Lol. Thank you! 🙂 I’m not trying to paint Scorpios in such a negative light. I know a few and they’re really good people (I’m sure you are too). Just having some fun with the astrological stereotypes.
