it’s all in the last word

Posted: April 3, 2016 in romance, word play

there can only be one first time

and the dubious honor goes to her

she was the first to kiss me with desire

she was the first to respond to my kiss



this was just a little exercise in playing word games with negatives
but i kinda like it
even though it’s sad

i took a walk today
along the wooded trail that has no trees

i looked through branches that were not there
past leaves that did not cover them

i stared at the cloudless sky
and imagined what shapes they didn’t look like



Show’s Over

When the final line is spoken
And the curtain calls are done
When the roses have been gifted
And the hugs and smiles are gone
In the shadow of a corner
With my knees pulled to my chest
I make passes at my loneliness
I seduce my emptiness (more…)

another man danced with my whore this week

he paid her more than i have ever paid

she promised he could leave his pain in her

she teased him till it seemed a good idea


deja vu

i feel like i’ve already posted this. . .

it is

i think


in some dark sense

in some weird humor

that my craft

my art

my estate

is really

when all is said and done

just me

leaving stains

on paper


Pleasure me
