Truth Decay

The day he moved in he started packing all of her away.
She barely even noticed her personal truth decay.
Her mirror reflected shadowed eyes, echoed her quiet dismay.
Without a breath in her defense she was a captured castaway.
She barely even noticed her personal truth decay.
Naively she didn't stand as he kept her friends at bay.

The home that she had filled with dreams disappeared when she disobeyed.

Adam and Steve

Twilight silhouettes 
Of apple trees
Stretch to kiss the last of the light.
A full moon ascends
Casts out feminine hands
As she smilingly heralds the night.
He pulls me toward him
Like the moon and the tide
I move close and he holds me tight.
I feel his life force
Under my hands
Alone, my desires ignite.
He kisses my cheek,
With his friendly ease,
My heart pains from love no requite.
Dammit! If I turn just an inch
And kiss his lips
Would he think me impolite?
Or would he suddenly realise
I hold true loves kiss
And let his hidden passion take flight?
What does all of this matter
If only one of us knows
And I will never take the first bite?

Just let it fall

Her Best Friend

He left a message on her voicemail
She saved it and she listens
She listens and burns.
She is a fool
Such a fool!

An innocent knee
Pressed against hers
Sets her alight where they touch
She is a fool
Such a fool

She listens to his beautiful words,
And lets them flow to the middle of her heart,
As she stares at the base of his throat.
She is a fool,
Such a fool

As soon as he leaves her
She feels a universe of hidden sentiments
Descend upon her tongue
She is a fool,
Because…because….

She shares him with so many just like her,
And she’s the easy target amongst them all.
Alas…he’ll have her gentle heart forever,
Because she is a fool
Only a fool.
