I See A Foot Tapping

I see a foot tapping

You’ve kicked off your heels

Pantyhose covered toes

Curves I’m meant to feel

I’m trying to catch your eye

Can’t hear a word I try to say

You’re off in your own world

Listening through Beats by Dre

Don’t Tell Me Stories Of The Righteous

landscape-768556.jpg

Don’t tell me stories of the righteous
I don’t want to hear of infatuated glories
My hope dwindles & my cynicism rebounds
Whenever your lips utter their sponsored stories
I’ll let you rule the ruins of dilapidated society
Your politicians ran amok, forcing common core math
I’ll retire into the wilderness to write my manifesto
Be forewarned; if you harm my loves, you’ll feel my wrath

Her Fantasy Greater Than Her Reality

Her fantasy greater than her reality
Nothing actually possible to feel
Dreams withered to dust between fingers
Nothing isn’t anything they could steal
Hold close for its something always
Imagine, just not too close to your heart
Beauty can always linger in your sleep
But it’s real enough to tear you apart
She’ll whisper all you ever want to hear
She’ll flirt & smile, but they’ll only be lies
Though it’s your fault if you believe anything
Her lips drip poison she shares with all the guys

Hearing The Silent Whispers

Hearing the silent whispers
Slumbering with no mistake
Perfection under the lids
Lashes for sentimentality’s sake
Graceful movements in the mind
Beauty casting with grand appeal
Softened breathing now
Love knows when it’s real

A Dizzying Cabaret

mask-715782A dizzying cabaret
Pouring wine from the fountain
A festival of lost souls
Chandeliers upon the mountain
Whisper to me in the gales
I’ll surely hear your heart’s song
A masquerade – I desire you
Though admit, this isn’t where I belong

My Eye Keeps Twitching

My eye keeps twitching
My soul being crushed by this stress
No one wants to hear my bitching
Pondering how to get out of this mess
I’ve got to look out for #1
Everyone else is doing the same
Need to survive until the setting sun
I’ve always heard I’m in a losing game

Sad Downcast Beauty

Sad downcast beauty

Why are you so down?

What is it that ails thee?

Your tears heard around town

C’mon sugar britches!

I need a smile from you

Sing me a sweet song

No reason to stay this blue

Grab hold of my shoulder

Let me raise you to the sky

Love could be a sweaty mess

Never again reason to cry
