Monster

By Damien Knight

 

I love and I desire
But more I despise and hate
Hate is my bread and wine
And lust is my soul

I drank the blood and ate
I ate the flesh of other men
I feasted on them with relish
There my friend is no sin

No sin is my desire
And my desire is in death alone
And you desire to taste me
You do not exist on your own

Because I consume you
Your love and passion is for me
But I am whole either way
Yet you, beloved, are empty

Neither of us to be apart
If you can love the monster
Who will not love you
Then we, my darling, are one forever
