if i was insanely in love with you
i'd take scalpols to your temples
and score down your sides
til i could peel you in half;
stretch you over my mattress
and sleep on your skin


Author's Note: This is just the product of daydreaming whilst listening to cocorosie. I was going to call this "skin" but then realised that Piel means both skin and peel in spanish.

Ha! Now this is how a love poem is done! I adore it - I shall have to give it my Poem of the Day vote. ;)

this gave me a weird shudder and made me feel kind of warm inside at the same time... should we be worried?

kinda gross but loving at the same time...hmmm.

now there is a surrealist picture as I've ever seen, wonderfully imagined, and still it has me wondering what happens to that love when it is fallen out of? I mean how do you put the one you used to love insanely back into her peel?

Be careful, he may return the favor.
