A New Flavor of Love


your love
a sweet poison
once could bring me to my knees
and as it coursed through my veins
burning my heart until it broke
I’d be left wanting more

but now the flavor of your love
has become mundane
your poison is no longer sweet to me
instead I crave for something darker

a mixture of regret and sorrow
a flavor that goes well with vengeance
that’s what I want

and for you my darling
I have a new flavor you might wish to try
it’s the type of love which comes coated in a rarity
that is smooth
and addictive

my love was all once so easily available to you
sprinkled onto every moment we shared

but now the recipe has changed

I want to see you suffer
and crave for me
the way I once craved you

my affection for you is evaporating quickly

I will never let it be easy again
and I know you will suffer through these games
just for a taste of this new flavor of love
because you crave struggle and uncertainty

A mixture of feelings tinged with thoughts of revenge in this creative poem Elise. Well written and thought provoking.
