snake charmed

By Candy Cain

Can I call you my heartbeat harvest or have you never heard a heart thief pardon? I could surf your channels days and still be blessed with ample pickin's. 
I mean, I'll bargain, but the only bars I gain at connect me to a highway where it's straight to you or bust, hence my blatant lust. 

I could stitch the holes in my wing with a string of your affection. Apply your kisses to my accuracy and split an atom with my aim. You could be the snake that locked me out and I'd still suckle the fang like it was the eve of something wicked and I'm looking for a taste.

    Interesting choice of words; it works really well. I'll also add: I enjoy your author's note :)

    Unique wordplay. Almost, dare I say, plucky. Lust and desire are quite the topic, and man can that potion turn toxic.

    This is *more* than lust. Obsessive passion begging release within the halls of one's soul. What is love, anyway? The begging question. Well done

    Very creative imagey from beginning to end . I started to pick some out for examples but there are just so many . Eye candy from beginning to end .

    This was definitely unique. I tend to like things that aren't as structured, feels more raw to me. So well done.

    I'm definitely not going to say that this is bad, it has some really beautiful lines, but the only advice I would give you is perhaps that this would be better off not being formatted in paragraphs. It's your poem, dearie, and always be proud of your work. Welcome to our midst. Rebs:).

    that's something to think about. honestly i've never really cared for looking at structure on that level. how i write it is how it comes out. thanks for being real.

    I feel like you took that pardon off that one Twenty One Pilots song. Think you're gonna add onto this one? It's good, but I feel like it could use another paragraph to round it off if ever.

    which song was that again? merp maybe I'll get around to another verse eventually then.

    this is... different! I don't mean it's bad at all... just different... I'm wondering what inspired this? ~worm~

    tThanks for stopping by. you're totally allowed to call it bad if you want to. if you're asking what inspired me to write it, it was something i made for a person i had strong feelings for.
