Unchained Sonnet

Posted: March 10, 2013 in Poems

Let me peel off your nose,

Pluck out your eyes,

And gnaw away at your chin

Until my white teeth click at your bone.


I want to strip away

The skin on your arms

And strum on the sinews underneath

As I hum the harmony stuck in my head.


I dream of breaking back your ribs,

Ripping out your heart,

And squeezing free the blood

From veins stretched out and inventoried over my bed.


And when I piece you back together I hope

You would want to do the same to me.
