This piece was first published on June 24, 2013 on my very good friend Justin Irabor’s (a.k.a.
@TheVunderkind ) blog here. It was entered in a “freakish” collection of stories and poems sold to us (participants) by Justin under a bogus name of: Big Blog Theory – grand name for a grand old scheme by an old war horse, yeah?! Right!!! Well, here you have the piece (with some modifications) for your own enjoyment ….
P.S: Do not turn off the lights after you finish.
S/he looked different
Her eyes radiant and yet fairly frightening
The bulge throbbing and pulsing beneath
Knocks my own eyes downwards in shame and envy.
In one body, everything so complete
This apparition you can’t but call beautiful
A body at one time smooth and cuddly; but at other times replete
With sights and sores so awful.
S/he is like no other I have seen
Male or female I have no idea
Other than that, I fear I’d become a meal and be eaten
As I woke from my fitful slumber, only again to behold this frightful monster.
