your lonely lips smolder

seek heat from other sources

while mine burn cheap scars

into unworthy opponents


wasted moments



your unattended lust wanders

finds home in worn-out hollows


well-worn paths

to old flames

and regret


my lust rages

an untamed ocean

swells and crashes

onto unfamiliar shores

sweeping the sands

of simple lives

into my riptide


my cunning mind

untapped resources to entice

but, I faulter at deception

unprecedented declaration

deny friendship and loyalty

defile budding reputation

throw caution to the tide

and arc in desperation


still, my cunning mind

sources to entice

oh, Lover

your lonely lips still smolder


can’t find them in the night

blinded by the light

of so many other
