Daily Prompt: Penchant

I always had a penchant

For people who are fucked up

I once knew a boy 

Who’s mouth was vast 

Like the ocean 

A tongue filled with lies

And teeth razor sharp

Sometimes I let him

Puncture me with them

Because I like the pain 

I once had a friend

Who’s stories I fell in love with

But he was so numb 

He didn’t know the difference between

Fantasy and Reality 

I once learned a hard truth

Every person you love

Has a part of you
