Blood Orange

This feeling eats at me
Like a worm 
Crawling through 
The depths of flesh
It fills my veins
With the deadly syrup
That enraptures 
My soul
It leaves me comatose
Left in doubt and confusion
Is this love or suffering
False flames or
Wayward beloveds
Frozen with fear
Disbelief & fury
A blood orange
Painted as a heart.
