I Was Flawless (or, Life As Your Buttertart)

by J. P. Davies

Recently served to you,
a fine specimen of taste,
I was pristine in form.
As your slender fingers
reached out and grasped
my delicate pastry skin,
I felt a slow softening.
Your warmth pervaded me,
and bonds broke asunder,
while I melted in hand.

Rushed through tense air,
I was placed so softly
upon your amicable tongue.
You savored me with glee,
your eyes clasped shut,
as my life and texture
became equate with yours.
For a moment we achieved
a perfect balance.
I was flawless and fine
until I met your teeth.

Okay, now it may just be me, but how could you NOT take this sexually? Anyhow, I really enjoyed this. :D

So, you're saying my mind is in the gutter? Nice work anyway.

Well expressed update of the ol' food/love/sex combo hunger. Killer last line!
