Sometimes I’m An Awkward Lover

woman-994737

Sometimes I’m an awkward lover

I try to slap your ass & pull your hair

But I don’t always have confidence

But I’m doing my very best down there

But I can promise you one thing, dear

I will love you and only you forevermore

I may be a gentleman at public events

But I’ll be your pirate behind locked doors

She Was A Shallow Girl

the-act-of-1331664.jpg

She was a shallow girl
Lingering in the brackish waters
Often commenting on my person
Advice & suggestions on how to be hotter
I tried to live within my control
But I was never good enough in her eyes
Qualifications & standards missed the mark
She let me go without even an honest try

I’m Pounding These Keys

typewriter-1148939.jpg

I’m pounding these keys

Trying to create a landmark

Something to last through time

A rhyme to set off a sudden spark

I’m vain in ways I won’t admit

A schedule of words upon the page

Formulas/equations for me to disconnect

Memories for after I’ve withered into age

The World Is Full Of Evil Villains & Misguided Souls

kiss-1083011.jpg

The world is full of evil villains & misguided souls
Trying to drag us down to where they forever dwell
They take advantage & find ways to get elected on lies
Summoning their teams of bureaucrats to send us to hell
They have money, power & zero regard for the truth
You’d have to be deaf, dumb & blind to not know what’s amiss
But I don’t want to give them anymore of our time
I solely want to focus on our next kiss

Not Trying To Be Wittier Than You

Not trying to be wittier than you

Perhaps I just am

You launch into hate

But I still don’t give a damn

Loud noises in place of words

You may stop with all your needs

My soul is immune to you

You say “asshole!” I say “indeed”

That Girl Wanted To Give Me Her World

girl-1382022

That girl wanted to give me her world
When she fell in love with me
The sparkle in her beautiful eyes
Trying to be what I wanted her to be
Sure that I was worthy of her love
Vulnerable, but wearing something tight
But I only wanted her to be her
To be free & glorious in my sight

My Soul Fills With Song For Uncle Walt

My soul fills with song for Uncle Walt
Years of running in circles
Trying to find my voice
He whispered his love in my ear
My wheels slipping on the rails
I turn, ready for the future
Ripping down my walls
Looking outside for someone to share
Hiding in shadows no more
I shall set sail for those lost dreams

Seeing The Outline Of Curves Beneath Your White Linen Shirt

Seeing the outline of curves beneath your white linen shirt
I’m trying to focus on the words you so eloquently say
I respect you completely, but I’m a weak man
Allowing my primal urges to get in my mind’s way
