Inside Out.

Do you love my insides?
You know the parts you can’t see.

The parts that constructively divide,
All the places where you can’t be.

Do you love my internals?
You know all my unexploited crevices.

All the words I leave out of my journal.
The soft tissue areas that offer no benefits.

Do you love my fleshy, raw fillings?
You know the boring and bloody parts.

The features that are not made for kissing.
The invisible strokes that add to this body of art.

You see it’s my exterior that attracts you
But it’s my interior that made this possible.

So when my insecurities inadvertently attack you,
Don’t be so swift to class me as distrusting and illogical.

I need to know and to understand.

That you truly love me for who I am.

Even the parts of me you cannot see

Because those are the places where I want you to be.

Something I wrote this evening while I had some spare time finally lol Inspired by Drusila from buffy the vampire slayer of all places lol its a long story but me and gf both enjoy watching classic series its just something we do. Anyway I wanted this piece to be as if a person is speaking directly. I tried to make it a bit more informal but I still hope it works as a poetic piece. Anyway I hope you guys like it and yes I am addicted to the incorporation of rhyme I just find it adds flow.

Not some of the rosiest word choices, to conjure up images; though that was deliberate, clearly. lolz
Still it left me going "aawwww", and relating fully! :love:

Don't know where it classifies, but I do know that it's a good bit of writing, and that's what counts. Nicely done.

My dude, so good. Inspired by Drew, too? I just got through readin' about her in the Angel and Faith comic, too. She found this demon that feeds off of negative emotion, so she used him to make her sane. It was so weird seeing her not be weird.

Anyway, this fits so well. And I like that you added the flow to it, too. That's the kinda stuff that speaks to me, true.
