Lifebane

As I bite into your skin
And taste your juicy flesh
Your blood runs down my chin
Satisfied I am at last

But only for awhile
And then I'll long for you again
To taste your sickly sweetness
And drain your lifebane away

My teeth embrace you
With the gentlest of bites
Pieces of you
Stuck on my whites

Oh how many too many to count
I just want
To taste your sickly sweetness
And drain your lifebane away

Author's Note: This poem is about me eating tangerines.
