“I would eat my way into perdition to taste you.” Jeanette Winterson

Sweet Pomegranate 

Your flesh so firm and rubenesquely rounded,
much the colour of a red wild rose, though
less of the wild of heart and so hard to get to,
needing to grasped firmly and torn apart until
your womb surrenders a thousand seed of
your life-blood bleeding down my chin as I 
rake your inner flesh for want of more.

    This is absolutely exquisite! ๐Ÿ˜€ I especially love; “though less of the wild of heart and so hard to get to, needing to grasped firmly and torn apart until
    your womb surrenders a thousand seed.”โค๏ธโค๏ธ
