A Poem by Vanessa Macanas

I crave it. I want it. I need it.

My fixes cannot be temporary.

So I'll pass the toxin through my lips

And suck on his sweet poisoned kiss.


I will breathe him in right through my chest.

Like wildfire, the poison spreads,

Rushing through my veins, igniting my senses.

Making my blood boil and my skin hot.


The poison takes control, takes me over.

The beast inside awakens.

She uses my body and takes a deep breath.

She breathes me in and I embrace her.


We pull at the source of our fueled fire,

Taking in his toxic air.


We touch his body as one.

We move with him as one.

We breathe with him as one.


The beast, unleashed, devours me.

She becomes me.


His lips press to mine once again

My pulse races.

I pull him in...


His lips linger and leave trails

From my lips 

Along my neck 

Right down across my hips.

My body trembles 

And my hands grip in his hair.


With each touch, with each kiss,

I become higher.

Rising into ecstasy.


His hands dance over my body

Making me tremble with sensation.

My mind becomes lost in this toxic reaction.


It is this that I crave. I want. I need.

I am a fiend.

I am a slave to his toxic lips, his poisoned kiss.


I am the beast he has awakened,

And I refuse to give up the abuse.

I cannot get enough and to come down...

Is not an option.


So I devour him instead.

I awaken his beast.

Now unleashed

And driven into a fiery passion.


Our bodies tangle and intertwine.

Lips crash together like waves to sand,

And we plunge into the ultimate ecstasy.

Together, untamed, wild, and free.

A powerful poem of emotion and desire. Each line adding to the heat and desire. Description and story was very good. A outstanding poem. Thank you.

The imagery, passion, lust and emotions in this piece are strong. You painted a canvas with words and ecstasy was the painting the emerged.

This piece is so strong from beginning to end, it pulls the reader right into the story. I like the way you turned yourself into two people, by his toxic kiss the beast in you was awakened, making you go wild and feel free, throwing yourself into the passion without hesitation.

I can't say that I have a favorite part of the poem because I loved the whole thing. This was a very good write! Keep it up! :)

You made good use of the central image, combining the wild and dangerous sensations with the loss of control and the overwhelming need.... Intense and exciting
