Too Cautious For That Rabbit Hole

tea-party-1138912.jpg

The slow silent flattery
Worming it’s way into your ear
Unsure of calculated intent
If you should accept it with fear
Or allow it to swell up & be free
Not much left of your personal pride
Life has chipped away at it
Sinking into a cowering stride

Too cautious for that rabbit hole
But you’re better than that
Deep down you truly know

How much effort have you spent
To be contrary & constantly ignore
The world as it whispers lovely words
Snippets of charm floating to the floor
Standing at an arms distance
Not believing yourself to be Alice
Or any of the princesses of yore
Never dreaming of a shining palace

Too cautious for that rabbit hole
But you’re better than that
Deep down you truly know

Never a confidence
Feeling temptations of the weak
They’re just simple words
Hoping to give an outlook a tweak
Not meant to encumber
Or ransack your existence
But you can’t hinder the words
& their slow penetrating insistence

I Sit Mesmerized

I sit mesmerized
Watching the sun crest the horizon
Arms wrapped around the prettiest girl
I’ve ever laid my eyes on
Pulling the zipper up to my chin
These mornings are surprisingly cold
Coffee does little to remedy my plight
But I’m content, together we’re gonna get real old

Come – My Arms Await You

Come – my arms await you
Let me take you away from here
Let us create our own private place
We’ll love & dance without fear
Take my hand, my beautiful woman
Let us kiss until our lips are sore
Let me describe each of my intentions
I’ll have you yearning & squirming for more

Doing My Best To Silently Refrain

Doing my best to silently refrain
A passion growing down deep
I can’t keep my hands to myself
Visions of your purity in my sleep
Listening to your tranquil pleas
Watching every movement slip
Packaged perfectly in my arms
Suddenly free with one swift rip

Returning To The World

Returning to the world
Finding life left unraveled
A smile never so grand
Home the best place traveled
Warmth of simple comforts
Never trading precious delights
Beauty in these open arms
Darkness eclipsed by light
