Sucked Dry

An poetic encounter with energy vampires

Lights inception
preparatory adjustments
packing morsels
mid-morning Fuel.
Catching morning tune
hearts intent
blackened truth serum
splash of nature’s kiss.

Breathe in
you got this.
Breathe out
ripened, qualified.

Chariots arrival
calming steed
tightened armor
pinch of leaf
tucked diurnal course.
Fortress gate
opens in delight
comestible man-meat
penetrating reluctantly.

Breathe in
you got this.
Breathe out
ripened, qualified.

Timer starts
heretofore predators bite
immediate intercourse
scratched foreplay routine
straight to climax
feeding frenzy.
Coming up for air
plastic bag
gasping for a puff
give me strength.

Breathe in
you got this.
Breathe out
it is done.

Vampirical and empirical
one after another
sucking last breath
feeding from the next
Quarantine amplified
hunting and gathering
feeding whatsoever
limited resources.

Breathe in
letting go.
Breathe out
returning home.

closing laceration
blood-lettings duration
hearts daily menstruation
Centering thought
sacred space
cosmic recharge
daily periodicity.
