Need

Skye and Kai — Captured by Colette

Flexible little rubber suctions
on greedy tentacles,
arranging and wrapping themselves
around their beloved host,
morphing, bending, flexing 
to align themselves 
to an imaginary symbiosis.
Sucking on teats of empty breasts,
feeding off toxic wants and needs,
that remain forever unfulfilled.
Limp, exhausted,
drained, emaciated,
they fall upon loneliness
to find the host plump 
with their love

*The dangers of needing to be needed. You need only see your true worth.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
