edgar, you're a heart eating canibal; i swear,
preyed on my soul, picked it apart with pink
tinted nails, while whispering raven colored
lyrics in tongue tied strains, her body ached.
a beautiful unbecoming, you said to me; she
simply screamed for a sinner's delicacy; then,
when days became poverty's raven, you drank,
you drank impossibilities (calling'em prophecies)
for centuries, then claimed them as you're own.

edgar honey, what does that poetry mean? 'cause
all that's sewn to skin is the forgotten confessions
and sun dipped tragedies; & know, she's no saint,
even if her eternity claimed your lips whispering
as though you're the savior to our dreams. yet,
i suppose cadavers are distinct immortalities & 
nightmares are dreams that've soaked reality.
i'm a proud Poeian honey, said so in the bio <>

    I love the way the reader immeadiatley knows what your thinking. From the first mention of Edgar I thought "Poe"?
    'A heart eating cannible' Not only is that a dead giveaway (and my favorite line), but it's so different from Poe's works where he describes the heart. Here, you say his poetry has captured your heart, swallowed it, made you feel, while his is so morose. I love this so much. :)

    this poem is so mind blowing, by the way are you referring to Edgar the poet(Allan Edgar Poe)...?
