I saw her again, last night,
As I slept.
Unlike any time before
In all previous visits —
She annexed my mind with incomparable beauty,
Yet completely unattainable to me.
This time, however, she was atrocious.
Yellowed eyes, blackened teeth, scaled skin,
Patches of dead, colorless hair strewn across a mangy scalp.
As if it had been used; drained of all of its worthy contents.
The most horrid detail —
Of her appearance this time,
Was that her face wore an expression of seduction.
Her tar-toned teeth
Made visible in a playful smirk
As she gingerly bit the right side of her bottom lip
Her hallowed, yellowed eyes
Beaded toward me, tinged with desire.
Yes, unlike every dream had prior
In this one I had her
Attained; all mine
This would be the only way–
I could have her again.
After she’s defected herself,
Without and within.
When no one would claim her,
And she claims me.
