Random Poem:

Still I Love You

That earthy, pungent aroma that musters
beneath your persona is grotesque.
Like vomit spewing ten feet from
the cavity of  a rotting boar.
But, still I love you.
Greasy, foul grit, piled on like shit.
Oh, the stench is so overwhelming
I have become blind.
But, still I love you.
The drunken glares, blackened teeth
and craters which swallow your hide,
are too sickly to behold for more than
a blink of an eye.
But, still I love you.
Your unpolluted heart,
and tender, unscathed soul
makes me want to inhale
deeper and take all that I can.
This is why -
Still I love you
