a feral creature called ''love''

crushed, wrecked, and shook 
like a ceramic doll I fall 

headlong and deep, deep 
into the violent stream 

of fear--fear that flows, flows
like a hurried river 

into the tributaries of my 
fearful heart which 

trembles and quakes at the 
watery inundations of its 

rippled waves; flooded 
and overflowed with 

fears and unmoved by 
promises that deceive 

with a caress I take refuge 
and secret repose 

in a thing more wild, in a 
thing more bloodthirsty,--

a feral creature called "love,"
whose kiss is a fatal bite!
