I search your cells with tiny fingers,
split hairs in a ravenous fashion.
Distinctive as a freckle or a mole,
I move with you—I drink of you.
When the time is right, pluck me away,
set me aflame, or drown me in alcohol.
UGH FORMATTING. WHY.
Alternatively, this could be a vampire poem.

I know it's about a tick, but from the first lines I almost thought it was about a baby feeding from the mother in a parasistic way which is a creepily interesting take on it... Lol?

Babies are kind of parasitic. LOL.

Haha, yeah, I'm bad at explaining stuff, but yeah, it made me think of how a baby was like a tick.

This is lovely! I got the vampire bit after I read the description, and felt quite silly for not noticing earlier, but I think I was focused on the lovely wording!

It was a really nice read.

Thank you. Although it is actually about a tick, so don't feel silly. :3
