Beauty And The Beast

 

  She had beautiful breasts, that being the 

beast I am, I kissed and sucked. No, but

it wasn't the nectar of the gods, or mother's

milk that I consumed. No, they were full of

cancer.

  That's why I'm this ugly deformed creature,

struggling to breathe in this broken down

wheelchair, that no nurse will push, stranded

in this hospice alone.

  I study the photographs that I took of her,

and see that the nature of beauty is purely

destructive. Soon I will die because of my love

for her voluptuous mammary glands. Once 

again beauty kills the beast...

This is insane and really weird, and I love it. Totally different than what I had in mind, and the metaphor in this is crushing and you nailed the monsterous and lonesome feeling. - E.E

Thanks Ezra, I specialize in the insane, it's certainly an enjoyable way to catch cancer, nearly as good as smoking!
