Black widow

i plucked
the bluebird's song
with the hook of nagging memories
to fill the clefts
in my mind
.
i trapped
the smell of erotic dreams
by blowing smoke rings
to trade for
a peep
into your heart
.
there i caught
a spider cheating the one she loved
making love to another
and eating him up
.
still i scoop out
your racing heartbeat
into an ice bucket
to serve chilled with wine
for you, me and him
.
who would you love
who would you eat
.
who would you cheat
to love
who would you love
to eat
?

why are your poems so wicked? They go soo deep in ones heart.
I loved this stanza

i trapped

Awesome! :)
Cheers!

@ Raaji: My wickedness just get reflected in the poems :)

Black widow is also a giant spider...the female mates only to eat the male

was that the inspiration!

@ Anki: The inspiration was human behaviour...the analogy is from nature....yes, the spider.
