    LOVE

    LOVE

    Consuming him like a great white,
    consuming him like a some broken down
    whore on a hot Saturday night;
    then leaving him empty.

    Love most foul comes and goes,
    or stays like a good dog and howls.
    Sometimes it blows like a discarded recite
    that has been tossed to the wind.

    Sometimes the wheels keep turning
    as you drive, with the Kleenex piling
    up by your side, and the radio turned
    up way past high.
    But even that cannot tune out
    the high pitched scream
    of her goodbye.

    Every now and then when
    the cruel fate of love
    feeds on the gluttony of your soul;
    and it eats you from within,
    like empty calories and chop sticks,
    you’re only hungry again.

    u have a fine way with words and this is what poetry is all about. this was fun to read but the circumsatnces are sad.

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

    Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
