Perfection Laid Out On Satin Sheets

adult-992003

Perfection laid out on satin sheets
Beauty dripping away piece by piece
Every dream slipped right through
Life & loss masked by laughing creases
He said you were everything he desired
Burning deep in his soul, but you refused
Moving too fast to stop & notice him
Yet you cry foul, saying you were abused
The sun rises no matter who is pained
Recall broken hearts when you’re the cause
Plump out your pretty pink lips
In the quiet of night, please retract your claws
Calm thyself, you know your own heart
Time to realize you’re the fatal flaw

Honky-Tonk Gringos

  

Honky-tonk gringos

Living out broken dreams

Seen every saloon floor

An eyeful across the beams

Rousing angst for a misdeed

Toss a nickel towards a spittoon

Each loss grows a little harder

Shot! dying under the desert moon
