The Tasting of Hearts

The Tasting of Hearts

A Poem by kera moondust

Idk what spawned this poem but I really like it. =)

Have you ever tasted heart ache?
I remember the cold feeling of the iron touching my tongue
Caressing my dead skin cells
That lived and breathed only for his loving embrace

An embrace of something rotten that collected in your eyes
And shoveled them out to the sun
Or was light the taste of heart break
Moonlight or some off flavor of LED
Energy saving

Lights that curdle at the sight of
Gamma radiation
That pours radioactive
From the mouths of the tainted
Heart broken

Was it the colossal strength of the sun
As its light takes you in dances with you
Then leaves you aching and burning with 
Sun scorched flaming red skin
That will sustain for months at a time.

Maybe it's poisonous 
The way a lovers embrace
Causes your heart to jolt out of your chest cavity
All the microfibers of your very existence beckoning for one 
While light pours into your pupils
Drenching them in a sandpaper dry spell
That will cause them to break off 
And glide into the open mouths of those
Heart broken misguided lovers

Or antiseptic haters
That have there mouths washed clean
Rubbed raw from the scum
That soap collected around there rotting hearts

I will not be 
Soap scum on your mirrors
Clouding the vision of some off beat lovelorn
Sick puppy dog
That cannot even see the heart break
Looming at his doorstep like death

I am not a fire escape
Used like some sponge
Rubbing your very existence clean of scum
Don't tell me you love me.

Instead look into my eyes
Lick My eyelids
Protrude your tongue down my throat
Like some alien invader welcomed
By some misguided
Humans who believe they are friendly

When in reality
I'll be the one to have left the sick puppy named
Hart break
On your doorstep

So remember 
Yes you with the alien for a tongue
What does heart break taste like?
