The Base

Bell ring sound thing but how ding dong

Do you think I’m able to drink from the

Fountain of mirth slow table so search

Drab covers hide glad tidings minuet so

Delve into duty with one foot on the base

Songs

Careful one means cautious two for you.

So much to chat about but not the will to

Chat. How was yours? Mine was fine.

Hope you are well. Being well is half the

Battle. Sometimes soft, soothing songs.

Full Circle

Knowledge sex intertwine exchange

Merely showing off catch cling walk

Togetherness ideas dreams whisper

Calling grown up respect beliefs wait

Yelling expression argument curse

Getting to Know Her

Do you know the way?

Never shown,

Nothing explained.

Everything is a culture shock.

How to treat a lady.

How to be a gentleman.

The first kiss.

Temptations.

Saving yourself for marriage.

Learning by example,

But only to a point.

Sexuality is normal.

Sex is okay.

Attraction, feelings,

Making conversation.

Treating her with respect.

Getting to know her mind

Before her body.

How to be a man.

Making meaning together.

Tricked by Honey

Mesmerized.  Taken in slowly,

Then so fast you can’t stand it.

Room to grow but nothing doin’.

Alone, so very alone.  Keeping one’s

Secrets close to home. Shame, shallow,

Around and around you go,

It’s all the same.  Nothing changes

Until you get sick of it all.  You can’t

Stand it anymore and you want to be free.

Outside influences aren’t worth much.

It is a personal, visceral decision.

To cut out one’s heart and throw it

Into the ocean!  To separate oneself

From everything—everything that

Brings you closer.  You must sever

That bond, all ties, or else you will be

Pulled right back under.  It’s not a

Journey, it’s not a path.  It’s a scream

In the dark of desperation.  You are trapped.

You are suffocating.  And you must be free.
