Loss Of Face

You peeled off my face,
defenseless grape.
Crooned, "let the world
see you now ugly bitch."
I bowed my head;
grew a new face in the dark,
skin thick as a mattress.
My muscular pores
will suck you in
semen, head, tail
and bones.
Call it a crime
of honour.

Hi BF. this is Freaky!
Though i am not sure if muscles have pores.
It should be the skin, no?

well even if u dont change it .. it doesnt make any difference because this is truly compelling.

This is a thumbs up review for a raw and unreal-but-real poem

You go grrrl! Fancy first stanza got me in a headlock right from the start.

1 gnat: add a colon to line9's end (I just read it like you were sucking me in semen, not as in you were sucking all of me and my semen and bones in).

That's all though. What a breeze.

i think your ending is too cute for itself. is my only criticism.

5-7 is very japanese. fumiko. whole thing is kinda actually. i love fumiko.

you get 10 for that, 11 for better ending.

S3 does read a bit odd with "muscular pores", could possibly be improved.

Another terrible  poem.
