The Mosquito

I know you are likely
to bite me

so I let you prick
my pale-brown skin

and allow you to suck
my blood in pain

but now that you are
heavy and full

I am sorry to crush you
on the wall…

Danny Sillada. Copyright 2004.

Now that's the kind of poem that just makes you wince.
Sorry to double-comment, but I had to share this gem by Margaret Atwood:

You fit into me
like a hook into an eye
A fishhook
An open eye
