Poetry #12: Erotica (or dedication to Shame)

[This was originally published in F.U.C.K. poetry Issue #12. The publish date is approximate.]


Sheltered innocence is sexual appeal
emotional turmoil an unfounded desire
twisted soul, scarred psyche, raging conflict…

desire to share pain, desire to be the
missing element. desire

Is it comprehension of pain?
empathy of internal struggle?
or lacking in oneself, and need for pain from another?
Doesn’t matter. Come mind fuck me.
Please?
