Bon Apetite

Bon Apetite

A Poem by Chloe..Across the Universe

What is that lying on your plate
That bloody pulsing thing-
Oh, that's my heart

Tell me, how do you like it?
You may need to add salt
It is bland I am sure

What do you taste, tell me-
Can you taste the sadness
The heartache, loneliness

I mean it is apparent
See- you put it all there- you
I gave you my heart and

You chewed it up
Spit it out like flavorless gum
Tossed it away like used kleenex

So... please,
Enjoy, eat up-
Bon Apetite

This is very cool. It is a good one. Don't lose it. lol
It's prose, it's clear, it's conversational, it's speaks it's message. I can just imagine the eyes delivering this message.
Good write.

i always love what you write becoz i can feel your passion...its naked and its pulsating.

Do you feel your poems need to rhyme or fit into a format? your very hard on your writing and that is okay but not deserved still. If you were to read this to people with the same passion and conviction you had writing it, they would love it. It is a desert served cold to a past lover who deserves such treats to remind them of what they have done. Too many people chew up a heart and discard it with little regards to anyone. I like this poem it is one I wish to share with another as well.

it just tastes like blood. and veins. and such. if i ate it. probably need a lot of salt.
but i'm a vegetarian
a very unique, great write.

(oh, i just read your review. i didn't know this poem wasn't literal )

not literally eating a human heart of course.

Oh my i would better refuse this dish, no matter how much its seasoned, i wouldn't be cruel to eat a human heart....
