And twas I who loved her...
I held her in these hands,
Like a warm blanket,
Comforting and kind.
But she was a bitter poison, toxic and deadly.
No antidote to her venom;
I wasted away with delirious eyes.
A coward they called her,
And it was the truth!.
But to save myself, I would have her bleed.
Her heart a raw panacea;
Crunched between my teeth...

T'night I'm releasin' a new style. Necromorphed Poetry.
If yer a gamer and ye've played the Dead Space series, ye'll know what necromorphs are. If ye don't, GOOGLE IT x'3
That said, Necromorph poetry is named such because its construction heavily parallels a necromorph infection. Essentially, ye take a poem (any poem really, t'night's was provided by me co-captain) and then ye transform it. The rules are as follows:
- The transformation has t' be morbid in nature. (necromorphs are "scary" I suppose)
- You must keep some of the original poem in there (like necromorphs retain features of the host)
- You cannot just change a few words, that be plagiarism! (get permission and make the work ye own!)
Once yer done, presto ye have a reanimated, necromorph poem.
Personally, I'm going t' be doing quite a lot of these as I really would like t' also work on prose and get things in order. This saves me time on comin' up with entirely new material and allows me th' chance t' see how crazy I can get with any given base.
If ye'd like t' sacrifice yer work t' me. Contact th' church o' unitology, because convergence is comin' and-
What was that? I swear I heard somethin'. I'm a little afraid t' turn t' me right, th' ghost o' Nicole might be there eh? haha! x'D

I understood it and liked it to a point, but then it got confusing after the delirious eyes part.
the subject loves her but it's a destructive love because she uses him, I don't get how she is a coward, and I don't get how he w0uld hurt her if he still loves her.
maybe a bit of symbolism would have been better there. Like the subject realizes she never loved him, and wishes he could take back control of his heart from her, but decides instead to steal her heart just as she did his, but in a more literal sense.
And if you wanted to keep the cannibalism part maybe he could eat her still beating heart whole, so their hearts would be together forever...
or something like that.
Ah I see where you were coming from now.
Thanks for helping me understand. :d
i love this
