GBE2 Week 11--Instinct

I skipped last week.  Real life got in the way of all the fun stuff that I like to do--unfortunately that happens sometimes.  This prompt--instinct--inspired me to write another poem.  Enjoy!

Call of the Wild

Sullen girl
heading my way
carefully tread 
the lonely highway
up the stairs--pure confidence
all vanilla cake and troubled lighting
Impulsive girl
sky's the limit
silly girl
it's only minutes
skin and teeth
lips and limbs
joy plus sorrow 
mixed with sin
why keep jumping at the chance
when you aren't worth a public glance?
It doesn't stop her coming back
again
and 
again
for a nibble
a taste
for carnage and grace
a reassurance of vanity
a waste of valuable sanity
and yet
it's set
in stone
instinct.....
every time she heeds the call

  1. Oh, this is really, really good! This part:

    it's only minutes
    skin and teeth
    lips and limbs
    joy plus sorrow
    mixed with sin
    why keep jumping at the chance
    when you aren't worth a public glance?
