This is a story about a man who ate love.
An odyssey of his tumultuous travels up above.
Coveting confection, he licked the sweet kiss.
Starving for affection, he swallowed the poor miss.
She lived inside his stomach for years.
Undigested and pretty, she slept in his fears.
Speaking in groans and abdominal aches.
At night, his disemboweled soul, in torment, shakes.
Insufferable disgust and miserably alone.
He prayed in hunger, in agony, to atone.
For once falling in love with a lady of wit.
He threw her up; a meal of true grit.
