A Poem by Kiera Scanlon

I am the erotic sensation that tingles your spine,
The provoking fascination that confuses your mind.

I am a creature of the word.
Which word?
Every word.

I am the scars than run deep and stain your soul,
The amplified misunderstandings of a past untold.

I am the spine, the blade, the sharpest point,
May I show you my neatly decorated knife?

I am the erotic sensation that tingles your spine,
ME: *thinks deeply*....SUGAR???

The provoking fascination that confuses your mind
ME: *keeps thinking*

May I show you my neatly decorated knife?
ME: You can show me yours if I show you mine!!!!!! :D

This piece has all the longings of the heart of a virginal maiden.

Sexy and dangerous

Good piece

This was a well written poem with great use of metaphors.

Brilliant Kiera, erotic sensation gives way to possibly murderous intent ( maybe here we have a sex crime ) what we do have is an enthralling piece that runs from visual physical sensuality to deep dark thoughts suppressed behind that deadly but so beautiful knife, wonderful! :)

That almost plays in my mind like a song or a nursery rhyme. It rolls off the tongue very easily, and I like that. I'm a little confused as to what it's about, though. Care to explain?

The last stanza was a bit hard to read. 'point' and 'knife' don't really read well. But it was amazing to read this. I can connect each stanza to something I know, making this poem even more fascinating.

I have to be honest. This isn't really my cup of tea. I'm not into dark poetry. I don't really know what to rate it, so I won't. Just my 2 cents.

This has a dark confidence to it, which I really like. It makes me wonder what will be done with such confidence and a knife? Only time will tell ;)

Very unique here yet I see flaws. You use great sensation yet the name is reflection.n
refection. Yet you are not reflecting on anything, maybe you are doing it in a different way yet the name doesn't suit it.
