myosotis boy

i love you
silly little ghoul -

i find a dead flower in a mausoleum and think of you
or maybe
decaying bodies in a morgue

they tether my emotions
and bring me into darker days

but somehow
there's another kind of light in this darkness;
so different than
how i used to feel
and how i used to bleed
from my scarred arms

i'm like a rotting little bat.

it is awful, isn't it?
that you have to spend a life
devoured by stubborn figures
when you should be as happy as a piece of
newly-mounted taxidermy

alas, you are not, my dear...

though in dreams, perhaps you are.

i do not exist in your dreams,
but i do not care,
i only want your life to be spared -

please stay in this world
and sleep near the flowers
please wander your cities
my sweet little ghoul.

Intriguing love poem, dark, unique, and enjoyable.

...my significant other and I use the word 'maggot' as an endearment, people think we are nuts. LOL

ah you see this is a very personal poem about my significant other
and in our case, ghoul is not derogatory but rather a term of endearment (i'd rather not explain it because as i said it is personal).

so you really missed the point here by focusing on the ghoul part, but oh well.

it is me expressing my feelings for somebody. it may not be your traditional love poem but it is just how my feelings came out.

Ghouls are what we make them to be and I really like this. Maybe I'm a ghoul at heart because i enjoyed the darkness and hint of humor in these lines and look forward to more. Vote

Ghouls are undead. One would not have a life to be spared.

The story is interesting but are you sure you are up to date with your folklore?

Maybe you are just referring to someone as a ghoul. It seems though that you like this person. Ghoul is usually meant to be derogatory.
