A victim?

Contours and curves make me shake,
a Freudian love dream.
I pulse, touching slick wetness on tender thighs.
Then collapse, flowering perfection is unobtainable.
We're not ready?
Thank god I'm a saint.

You think? How so?

God I love huge run on sentences. Also shitty images and cliche phrases that sound like they are from Elton John songs (touching slick wetness). Line 2 sheds some light on the issue though. Slick wetness blowing through your skull and out of the vacant cavity where your brain should reside. I'm sure by slick you meant perversion. We're not ready? Really? Is that why this piece is so incoherent and lacks substance or meaning? I would say so. If I were anywhere near you, I would spit in your eye.

Yeah, Elton John is known for writing songs about feeling wet vaginas. Moron

stop talking to yourself slick willy.

Is this about feeling up a dead body? Or, a child molesting priest? (I do not think poorly of priests by the way...I think they're all generally good). I only thought that 'cause of the "saint" part. Hmm...interesting, but ya feel short. 5/10

No, it would be about feeling up a live woman. I dont know how I feel short. I'm nearly 6'2". Does my writing make my stature seem diminutive?
 — InMyBlood

I have no idea what you're getting at with this.
 — weed

You people are dense.

I liked the first four lines, but I have to say that the last two seem so disconnected. Ready for what, sex? This should probably be made clearer, as should your meaning of saint. As it stands, it looks a little too shallow, and I think they could, at the very least, be better worded. Perhaps the second line could have a word or two added was well, as it's out of balance with the lines surrounding it. And as a last note, I'd say find a better word for "shake".
