I'm Your Heartworm

I lust for sightless soil
navigate between rock and root
eating so much darkness
inhaling so much darkness
the only sound ... my sticky body
moving father earth back and forth
breaking him into smaller pieces
others doing the same...the same
(ghost ships-gliding-blackened waves).

for me to breech the surface is to gather eyes
see the blossoms that i've oxygenated 
then promptly set afire

its a miracle, iv'e found yet another petal soul to devour
climbed its jewel encrusted face
cleverly burrowed my way in
seduced an ember deep within its carapace
while you were gently sighing out angels,
i was licking you into pieces...
to late to scream
my banner carries no oxygen
only the soil of past conquests.
i am your heartworm
... your sticky rosary of death
