swallow life whole | an original poem

sometimes you get that little buzzing feeling in your underbelly

when you feel mischief pulsing in your veins

reckless abandon caressing the nape of your neck

pecking your cheeks

and you hope to god the devil didn’t send those winds of change your way

because everything seems ready at your feet

awaiting your pearly white teeth

to take a bite

and swallow life whole

no water necessary

forgive me, if i am the only one who knows how that feels

i figure it would be nothing short of narcissism

to believe that temptation only tempts

the severely unkempt folk like me

it isn’t that easy you know

fighting
