A Little Love from Nothing

So last week we gave you thirteen romantic words and then asked you not to write us a romantic poem. It can be challenging to make words we normally associate with certain emotions work the other way around for us. In the same spirit of opposites attract, here are thirteen more words.

They aren’t romantic, but we want romance from you. Take these words and make us feel the love.

Remember to share the prompt and that every poem linked up for the week will be considered for this issue of the magazine. Submissions are now open, so send in your best work!
1. apathy
2. animosity
3. indifference
4. disdain
5. hatred
6. merciless
7. cowardice
8. fear
9. disloyal
10. lie
11. fake
12. broken
13. misery

  1. Specter of spellbounded love

    In piquant sins we cast aside our fake skins
    And you, enthralling nymph, I ravish.
    Merciless… disloyal… broken…
    With enriched fear I thrust you with death’s silken shrouds
    In a fiery obliteration of all that ever was or will be,
    Mesmerized by the exquisite taste of your ambrosial flesh…
    Spicy… Rhapsodic… Rosy…

    The nifty apathy of the forbidden gods we lacerate
    By magical earthquakes of impish and shameful passions –
    I worship thy playful hatred of the tenebrous quill,
    You sacrifice my uncharted and mirthful misery,
    And we are picturesque shackled together
    In a primal kisses pastel of infinite stunning animosity.

    You gracefully devour my void. A luscious stained glass of viscous ruby nectar,
    Celebrating our flawless erotic cowardice, is shattered in chimerical ruins of devotion.
    A timeless disdain between our perky ghosts ends in satin shivers of abyssal Elysium,
    Under the Chaos’s sparkling indifference chiseled in transcendent resurrection.

    We find the mystic truth worthy of being condemned
    To voluptuous submission and then savagely die,
    While, as the ravens foretold, we are wonderfully blessed to be damned
    Into ravenously loving each other under the alluring shades of a relishing lie.
