I Gave Myself To Him

immortal

He wined me, dined me, put me in a pan and baked me

He poured my blood into a cup and drank it

I sat across the table from him and watched him nibble at my feet

He ate my fingers and my toes

He tore out my heart and he ate it

He inserted a straw into my skull and sucked out my brains

I fed myself to him

All I ever wanted to do was satisfy him

I lay on his black silken sheets and I gave myself to him

That he may never lack

I gave it all to him

And when I was left without life in me

I gave my soul to him

But I was never enough for him
