POETIC WORDS


Poetic words I write for you


Your lips are damp like sweet honey dew


Our love resembles a summer song


Cherishing each other all night long


Your soft hands brings chills within


I love your face that wears your grin


 

PUSHING


People do not understand me


I wish they could see past the mask


Struggling through greetings and smiles


Pushing past my limits to keep up for a while


I'll pretend to be a social butterfly fluttering throughout the day


I'll even mimic your laugh to ensure I'll be okay


Although I'd rather listen to raindrops within the night


I keep pushing myself to be a Goddess in the light


 

STARDUST


I taste your lips pressed to mine


They're sweet like sugar plums


Your touch is gentle when we're lovers


Stardust explodes between us


 

SEDUCTRESS


Sitting on a bar stool at a quarter past ten

Wearing her finest jewels while hunting wealthy men

Her dress is made of satin that shows her snowy skin

Casting out her charms, she catches you with a grin

Eager to to latch on, the fish come swimming in

The winner sits by the beauty drinking at the bar

He doesn't know her game

He sees her as a star

She nibbles on his ear

He shivers with pure delight

They make it back to his place and stay there through the night

She treats him like a God until she hears him say

Marry me, my sweet

Make me happy today

They have a simple wedding

Their love is strong and true

No need to waste riches

This they strongly knew

She goes about her day as the happy wife

She cooks for him and cleans

This brings his heart delight

One evening after supper the newly wed feel ill

His breathing becomes heavy and develops drowsiness and chills

The wife sits by his side as he starts to fade

Smirking with triumph at succeeding at her game

She mourns his death with family under the big black veil

Enjoying a wealthy life

She is clearly going to Hell
