Usually just a bunch of silly crap.

Slaves

Seduction . . .

red bedroom eyes ablaze.

Touching lips,

touching breath to hungry bodies.

Sex so wrong that we put everything we had aside

          nowhere

                    ever nearing

                             love.

 

You were good,

a philanderer’s life ambition.

No questions asked,

I’d call as I would crave it.

No pains,

                                               no bother,

lost searching broken souls.

We were just bodies for each others’ lust.

 

Slave . . .

I’d call and you’d come running.

Lonesome bones

within a hedonistic prison.

Hollow beings with hearts of ice

we enjoyed just being used.

Without a fleeting thought of shame I’d grossly shut my eyes . . .

          . . . and slam it in.

content within my bondage.

Safe and warm

within your inner sanctum.

  

I’d call your name upon the wind when others wouldn’t have me,

or show up on your doorstep late at night when it got cold,

or call you for your company when my steady woman left me

I’d close my eyes . . .

            and whisper your name . . .

                        and obediently you came.

 

Fucking slaves . . .

we had no self-respect.

You were there

until she had me back.

True it brought joy and euphoric highs uncommon for us both

          nowhere

                    ever nearing

                              love.

 

Sorry slave,

it’s not what I had promised.

Tearful slave,

what did you expect?

Did you deep-down really buy that line of no way we could lose

with the two of us relating lives on lies?

  1. FYI, the first time I completed the “Send Me Spam” field I never received a confirmation email, I suspect it really WAS viewed as spam by my account. Nevertheless, I am now officially subscribed. Great work, Tak.
