humans are dangerous addictions [poem]

when you offered me your throat
laid out your body like a banquet in my bedroom
I should’ve sank my teeth into your flesh
taken your unthinking sacrifice
before sunrise made you remember yourself
I have so much left to say to you
but the light
the light made me leave
not your light though
because your light was pure moonbeam and hellfire
I wish my mouth knew your skin
fragile pulse against kiss-bruised lips
or that my tongue knew your taste
rather than just the taste of your name
humans are dangerous addictions
it may take an eternity to forget your voice
and the ache you left behind
when you offered me
a taste
