Rip It Off




Thick crust long and deep

Color of crisped  bread crumb coating

You began as a crimson bead

A perfect little blob of blood

Love’s deed

It did prick again

And again, plunged deeper each time

New blood building upon the old

Across my chest crispy  coating

Love’s bold

Brazen behavior

I should have known far much better

But what I knew I soon forgot

Because you are a Scorpio

Love’s hot

Poisonous stinger

Sharp and dripping did form this scab

Cruelly rooted inside my heart

Rip it off, rip it out and die

Love’s start

Is so beautiful
