You, Necrotic You

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


You, my gaunt and decaying love,

how your face entreats me

your smile: toothless, lips sagging,

a gentle touch, a sigh

and I am yours.

I drop to your bony feet,

in awe of your beauteous form,

skin pealed, muscles pulled from tendons,

bones bending, dark and crunchy.

Please, may I put that eyeball back,

that empty socket excites me so.

How grey you are,

under this radiant moonlight,

blood now dry and brown,

a remnant of a past beating heart.

Run your fingers through my hair,

and lull me to an early sleep,

for I am lost without you,

and bring the darkness on,

my oblivious living death.

My love, sit with me,

my hip just cracked

and I cannot rise to see your beautiful face,

the tender clanking of fleshless limbs,

entwined in passion.

I ache for your loins,

your luscious body,

but I am without,

helpless in this conscious death,

the humming of maggots

my only remaining life.

How cruel this end;

hold me, so we decay as one,

dust to dust,

blackness together in life and in death.

Farewell, necrotic you.
