To my kind and gentle readers:
Hello and welcome to The Inchoate, an anthology of the best of my poetic skills. It gives me the utmost pleasure to know that you have deemed me important enough to spend your precious time on, and I can only hope that you will not be disappointed.
I must add that although The Inchoate has been placed in the Fantasy section, I may disregard the boundary at some points and (very briefly) slip into science fiction. After all, writing for a single category places a lot of restriction on the artist, does it not?
The first poem I place before you, my illustrious audience, is the story of a host who has a rather interesting relationship with her parasite. The circumstances of this situation, I leave to your capable imaginations.
The Host and the Parasite
You want me, you need me
You know that you need me
You need me as somewhere to stay
Sharp tiny claws need something to cling to
Away from the warmth of the day
You'd leave if you could but you can't, don't you see?
You need me much more than you'll say
Where else will you find a kindly inside
To shelter your miserable skin?
Where else will you find as willing a host
As kind as the one you're in?
Dear little parasite, sweet as can be
Don't you know what your boundaries are?
You need me to feed and I need you for nothing
You're stuck like a dead rat in tar
Sweet little parasite, though you may gripe
And squeal as you roll in my guts
You know that you need me much more than you say
You need me like Vegas needs sluts!
So please cease your whining, my patience's declining
I grow sick of your constant tirade
Though I am your hostess, your willing companion
And perhaps I am even your maid
Remember that I hold the power, my dear
Without me, your life is for naught
So be kind to me darling, talk nice to your host
Or I'll leave your poor body to rot!
A rather short one, but they will all be possessed of some brevity, I fear. Should it please you, I would inquire of my kind readers to leave me a small note of review for reference purposes. I will be eternally grateful :).
Do feel free to PM me with any requests, complaints, dissatisfactions, and the like. I will make an effort to respond with great haste.
