My Sweetest Concoction

My Sweetest Concoction

A Poem by Camille Corbett

You, my darling, were my sweetest concoction,
A sweet little tart waiting to be devoured by my ravenous mouth.

I swallowed you,
I ripped you open,
And I almost digested you,
but instead, choose to spit you out.
Now, here you are
Mangled and sad and broken

Now, here I am
ravenous again but craving something bitter.

You were my sweetest deprivation,
and I was your angel.

I think I’ve been that concoction for someone...

Never mind - the whole thing left me bittersweet.

A lovely piece. :):)

Is the topic about something to eat, someone to eat, or a baby being born and dying in the womb? Is the MC a vampire or a monster/angel-type? Sorry. This poem is utterly fascinating to me. Please PM me with the answer. I'm dying, so curious.
