Flash 55 - prick lee



your love is like a prickly pear
or
it
may
be
like an overprotective mama bear

you look all round, yummy and sweet
but
just
look
out
you’ve claws in your bumps and feet

you inflict on me lots of hurt and pain
must
be
totally
insane
‘cause i keep coming back again and again

    Loved this Vanessa. Made me grin. Perfect photo accompaniment!

  4. Ouch! Like the way you've shaped this one, so the longer lines look they are prickling out, and I love 'claws in your bumps and feet...'
