Love Letter to a Praying Mantis

I know you’re no good for me, that your love will be the end of me, but I can’t bring myself to care.

You’re beautiful, so beautiful it overrides my reason. I love you and want you and need you.

I shall possess you, and we two shall, for a brief time, be one.

Should you turn on me when we’re through, I’ll accept this for what it is.

Should you consume my body, I’ll accept it the way I accept that your love has consuming my soul.

I’ll do my best to nourish you.

It’s all I can do.
