Wordle #178

178

I’ve made a meal of your center,

Your words my sustenance

Your blood, my refreshment.

I know that you are more

Fluff than marrow

And this is why I pester,

Why I rearrange

Your teeth and bowels

Until your joints

Soften from the pain

Like spoon-tilled jello.

A test by any other application

Wouldn’t be so cruel but than you

Wouldn’t try so hard to surpass

Your stone-crushing anxiety.

In the end we all find our way

To the hospital, sutures adorning

An essential ouch, might as well

Dream while our eyes still open.

  1. I love the strenght of the opening line, I love that it makes you want to read onwards to see how the atmosphere adn the story progress.

  2. Well I agree with the last part, and that is one thing worth to pain, to live life to the full while we can. The end has a different feel than the first part, the consuming of them them, the testing, the preparation of them – perhaps it is all in leading to learning how to live now?

    • Anxiety can be quite excruciating, paralyzing even and pushing yourself through that or having someone else push you out of your comfort zone as always happens in any relationship is difficult but in order to live fully we’ve got to embrace challenge

    vampire
    dabbed
    at
    the
    blood
    dripping
    from
    the
    corners
    of
    his
    mouth
    it
    had
    been
    a
    good
    meal
    red
    jello
    not
    withstanding
    the
    hospital
    center
    would
    never
    pester
    him
    they
    knew
    it
    was
    safer
    for
    everyone
    to
    let
    him
    have
    his
    fill
    he
    whispered
    words
    of
    dreams
    and
    fluff
    into
    their
    ears
    just
    to
    let
    them
    know
    he
    was
    grateful

    no
    one
    even
    said
    ouch
    as
    he
    licked
    their
    necks
    running
    his
    own
    tests
    to
    see
    if
    they
    were
    to
    his
    liking

    instead
    men
    and
    women
    alike
    swooned
    in
    his
    arms
    and
    asked
    for
    more

  4. This is an excellent opening line: “I’ve made a meal of your center”

    I love this section:
    “I know that you are more …
    And this is why I pester,
    Why I rearrange
    Your teeth and bowels”
