Animal Instinct

Animal Instinct

A Poem by José Humilde

Just up late...watching old re-runs of Law and Order. haha

There goes the prey that I'm silently stalking.
I've gone hungry for far too long.
Pounce on her back lightening fast-almost shocking.
I have no remorse; I see nothing wrong.

I snapped her neck before she could make a sound.
Her sweet flesh was teasing my nose.
I made sure there was no trail so that we could be found.
Drove her home and ripped off her clothes.

She wasn't my first; definitely not my last.
I finished up with my tasty snack.
I compared her to others I've had in the past.
Licked my lips with a slurp and smack.

A noise at the door; somebody was knocking!
I opened the door with a bit of a quiver.
It was just the neighbor, "That's my car you are blocking!"
I backed up my truck and made plans for some dinner.

It is definetely an uncomfortable read! Don't know where you were going with it but you hit a 10 on my "creep O-meter"! Very effective.

You have a talent for rhyming :). I think that what this poem needs it a little more clue as to what this speaker is. Are you talking about a cannibal? You could use the title as the way to set this up somehow.
