fresh air
the show
must go on
i know you better than you think
i’m ready for that drink
was strong
yet sweet
her voice
makes my pass
complete.

what is sophisticated?
in a relative mix
who has experience?
with a reality based fix

i remember the day when i ached for that girl’s heart
years have gone by
i’ve since buried that spark
to play with that desire
is to play with fire
the dancing of the flames
homeward bound james
driven to the core
the embers flick to roar
whore
myself to her smile
attached
for just awhile
long enough to see
the real soul found in her eyes
behind the front
behind the coyness
behind the lies
to herself
she’s working out a plan
but to this man…
