Hunger

Hunger

casting her pride aside

she straddled his waist

plunging her blade into him

in one fluid motion

she quickly pryed his ribs apart

to expose his still beating heart

with her energy waning

and no time to waste

she ripped the meat off

in great greedy chunks

with her teeth

social distancing had left her hungry

she was so thankful he had agreed to meet
