Lately, I Care


Lately, I care
You only frequent a place
When only a certain 
Someone is there
Lately, I care
That that blessed friend
Doesn’t make an appearance
Like he used to
Lately, I care
That your lingerie arouses you
As much as it does me
Lately, I care
That you can make your hands
And lips
Feel the way mine does to you
Lately, I care
That I cared to notice
That I have been living all along
Lately, I care
That I wasn’t the one 
To teach you how to love me
Lately, I care
That it took an outlet
For me 
Lately, I care
About our adventures
Lately, I care
About when it’ll all end

I want to know why You wanted to go


 

Beside my bed

Is a brown-eyed dresser

These voices in my head

Should make me the Professor

 

It would take so much more

Just to find the right door

I guess I’m going through a phase

Of Jungle Boogie or School Days

 

Did I read the wrong signs?

Are there thorns in my eyes?

I’m just a lover of all kinds

Helping others see different skies

 

I need to know

Why you wanted to go

Tell Me

Don’t show me

I may not want to join the cast of your show

I need to know

Why you wanted to go

 

Trippin’

There were times I felt like slippin’

Dippin’

There were times I couldn’t stop drippin’

Flippin’

Only you can stop me from trippin’, slippin’, dippin’,

Drippin’

Almost got me crippin’ and hippin’

 

So, I need to know

Did you find a brighter light

That makes you want to go

In a new direction of right?

 

I need to know

 

Strawberries and cream

Passion fruit made of tears at your seam

If you couldn’t shame hang

Why come in for the bang?

 

I need to know

Why you wanted to go

‘Cause if you need to leave

Give me time to grieve

 

….ism


It’s so damn sad
when You’re in the middle
Crosshairs
Indecision
Joker
Seems everybody’s got their motives
Walking poker faces of votives
Dare You continue to play
The nerve of You walking away
It’s so damn sad
when it’s all about a look
Impassioned still gawkers
seem hooked
as to why their
interview wasn’t booked
Options
Those concoctions
they set to keep You just
where You nailed their perception
of reception
And they thought You
were making the first impression
Bid them adieu
before making a confession

The Meaning of the Wedding Ring

Though intended to profit two

 

only one is the truest Victor,

 

guess who

 

Should it be decided that

 

muscles reign

 

then the other knows their plain

 

Rose-colored lenses

 

bear the bulk of offenses

 

Always in defense

 

giving more than six pence

 

untll every egg is cracked

 

and stacked against loneliness

 

Allowing this charade

 

any good times begin to fade

 

The ire stands behind the fire

 

of a proposed Empire meant for fidelity

 

What a pity

 

The picture is clear

 

while as there is fear

 

The voice of cheer applauds

 

and lauds

 

slaying the pretty

 

Itty-bitty kitty

 

Only one pole

 

has stolen the hole

 

of the forlorned soul

 

away from

 

the next thumb

 

that comes along

 

and delivers a wind-song

 

But, the prettier the ring

 

one is bound to accept anything

 

Expect to be a reject

 

with a defect

 

Unless a thick skull

 

finds you in a lull

 

Placing all of one’s heart

 

in a revolving glass mart

 

sets for destruction

 

minus the input of the other’s construction
