Feasting On You

Feast in the House of Simon, 1610, El Greco




Feasting upon your eyes
Savoring warm
 Strong
  Flesh 
I hunger for your smile
 Laughter...
  Words
Your vitality meshing 
  Within mine
On a bed of hot coals

Dana

  4. "Feasting upon your eyes." This line implies so many things. Being fed by the views of another--by the way they sense the world (if we are feeling positive). And the dark side, that reminds me of "we'll eat you up" from Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are.

    I love the way your mind works!
