ask me why

if you wanted to ask me why

my truthful answer would have
come at dinner

don’t ask me why in the throes
of passion

my answer will always be a lie

to ensure the passion continues

three for you

you’re like an antidote that mixes with my uncertainty and keeps me in balance
but i am not here to force my twisted soul into your life
i just want someone to touch me on a regular basis

the simple curve of your face tastes of the sweetest chocolate in the world
your laugh has the aroma of jasmine in the deep, deep night

your soft kiss is the orange glow of the sunset bringing an end to one reality
giving a hint of a whole new one to come
