i severed you—like an arm, a leg,
tearing sinewy flesh and skin
breaking bones like rock salt
cracking from a shot gun,
and echoing into neon night.
i bled you out—
a pustulating canker sore,
a festering blister on my heel,
a viral infection
eating away at my innards.
your shit-stained prayers
pleased the sky,
but still i
readied the glinting blade
and slit my stomach open,
seppuku spewing guts
upon the ground.
aching intestines wreathed out
an uncoiling and enchanted snake,
spraying horrified onlookers
with warm, wet blood.
my elongated nails
slipped through the sky
piercing my eyes
and plucking them out.
i clawed at my face
with calloused hands,
shredding skin and cartilage
into anonymity.
i yanked fistfuls of hair
from my scalp,
casting them aside.
it took hours, but
my oedipal screaming
soon wrenched my throat
into choked spasms and sobs.
i vomited turnips
upon the tarmac,
and wretched
your baked spaghetti.
stumbling blindly
i tore out my trachea,
pistoning inky black bile
that reeked of greek coffee.
i burst at every end
like a children's water park—
a corrosive plaything,
toxic ooze ushering forth;
your scorpion sting
sticking me like a thousand needles.
on the greyhound
a girl
placed a princess bandaid
across my exposed and aching bone
that won't make it better
i said,
she pointed to her watch.

Intriguing write.  My favorite lines are 41-44.  I also like end lines 55-57 as 'time heals all wounds'.  Nicely executed.

Hello, it's Rebecca!

I'm reaching out because I want to comment on the already decent work on the testing content on poetrycritical.net.

I wanted to ask you if you have heard of this vape seo package (https://wowitloveithaveit.com/products /extra-powerful-vape-backlinks-for-shops-seo)?

I was told that many leading companies in the industry are using it with the likes of vapor dna, vape ranger, element eliquids, ie vapor, ejuices.co, marina vape and other big players.

I just wanted to check whether you have used them before as I can see that you have a backlink from https://wowitloveithaveit. com so my natural assumption is that you are working with these guys.

Would you recommend them?

Good Afternoon

I am writing to you to introduce my freelance vape seo services. I specialise in creating quality vape-related links to rank vape-related sites on search engines such as Google. I work with 50 of the leading vape shops, e-juice brands and wholesalers and now I have decided to take the same package that we provide to clients via an agency and offer it ten times cheaper on Fiverr.

Please take a look at the package and if it is of interest, please feel free to order it from  https://www.fiverr.co m/cryptovaper

Thank you for your time.

Kind regards

Simply send me the keywords you would like to rank for and I will create individual blog posts on each vape blog and add a link to your site with your preferred anchor text. I will embed some vape-related images and video reviews.

All work is done manually using content related to your keywords.

All of my blogs are hosted on different servers and have different IP addresses.
