What was I before you
A halfbaked dream cupcake woman
needing icing and your tastebuds
to fully become
only while being eaten alive?
Hahaha–that’s the spirit 😉
Flour, an egg or two and space dust?
Yes–but don’t forget a lot of sugar too 😉
I always forget the sugar… sorry sweet Susan.
That’s what I like…a cupcake with an edge.:)
Hee, hee. Thanks, Jen.
Wow. I like the dark edginess of this. “only while being eaten alive”.
Alice, thank you. I do so like pissed-off poetry. It is not often I get to write it.
That’s telling ’em. I love it!
Hee, hee. Thanks!
Oh this is perfect! I wish I’d had it to quote at times in my life when relationships broke up…it is so, so deliciously clear and strong! 🙂
Helen, thank you!
Wonderfully poem Susan. “Halfbaked dream cupcake woman” was the icing on the cake for me.
Thanks, Joseph! I love those random gifts from the universe that that line was.
Read it and went “Ha! Too right.” Excellent last line.
🙂 thanks, Holly!
Perfectly said. Love the imagery
Gosh! Gosh! Telling off! Telling!
Hee, hee. Just a little.
The dual meaning of “being eaten alive”! That got me!
***smiling. Perhaps I should clarify somehow in the poem that I am referring to nothing enjoyable!
The pleasures of the “sweet-toothed” cannibal tongue!
i just. wow. the question mark attempting subtlety and I can just feel the indignation!
Thanks, Shrinks. I just looooove objectification, know what I mean?
oh, do i….
Why does the floating question mark make me laugh so hard? I just love that. . . it suggests a higher knowing and a higher confusion.
Because you got it…and I was laughing when I wrote it!
Pretty darn marvelous, Susan! 🙂
And the active ingredients are… careful when you add sodium to my water.
You had me at the title lol…you know I love it
