A Sucker For A Drummer

I cannot deny

That there are times

When I imagine the singer in the sack

But mostly the guy

Who really catches my eye

Is the one with the sticks at the back


‘Outlandos d’Amour’

As my
soul
swoons
to his
song

And my
toes
tap to
his
tunes

I
remember
the
romantic
revelry

Of
those
academic
afternoons

A Younger Model

Will you still love me

When I am old and grey

Will you still want me

To touch you in that way

Will you still need me

To kiss you goodbye each day

Or will you just find someone else

And simply walk away


A Risky Business

We really
shouldn’t
do this,
she said,
it isn’t
the right
time

It’s now
or never,
he said,
for I’ll
soon be
past my
prime

Allure

When I stopped the anti depressants

My feelings of lust were incessant

My thirst for bad boys,

Conmen and cowboys

All came back with a vengeance

(Well, those on TV shows at least)


Angels & Devils

Good men
do bad things

And good
women do too

If I was ever that way
inclined again

I’d do bad things
with you

Here, Rub This

It seems her wish

Wasn’t his command

Nor was ensuring

Her needs were met

This became

Pretty obvious

When they went back

To bed


Three Wishes

She stops
and sighs
as he
implores
her to stay

But I don’t
think you can
help me,
she says,
turning away

He looks
and smiles
as he
reaches for
her hand

Just trust
me, he says,
your
wish is my
command

Melting

Don’t get me wrong

It’ll take much more

Than just a smile

For my heart to thaw

But until such time

It doesn’t mean

That we can’t have fun

In between


Your Smile

Even
though
my
heart

Resides
in the
deep
freeze

Your
smile
has the
power

To make
me weak
at the
knees

(Slave To The) Algorithm

I guess that’s why folks use Bumble

Grindr, Tinder and Hinge

Virtually searching for a fumble

For digital bodies on which to binge


Blindfolded

They
say
there’s
someone
for
everyone

But
how
can
that
possibly
be?

I’m
surprised
anyone
can
find
anyone

Trapped
in
this
insanity

Not Wandering Anymore

Out with the old

And in with the new

Time for me to find

Someone better than you


Rose Tinted Glasses

Sometimes a
wander down
memory lane
is no bad
thing

So long
as you can
remember
your way
back

It Isn’t Always Metaphorical

I’m not quite sure

If this needs any more

As my request is perfectly clear

Sometimes my implication

Requires no explanation

Just as is the case here


Submission

Ah well

What the heck

Put your hand

Around my neck

And squeeze

‘Just Like A Moth To A Flame’

You only have

To look at me

And I am powerless

To resist

As by your eyes

I am hypnotised

And before I know it

We’ve kissed


Temptation

Although
it seems
I’ve
lost
my way

I’d
like to
make it
back
someday

Now all
I can
do is
hope
and
pray

That
you
won’t
lead me
further
astray

Next Day Delivery

If only you knew

All the shit I was buying

Just to see you

On my doorstep smiling

I’d be off your route

Immediately


The Delivery Man

You have no idea,

How much your sideways glance,

Hauls my weary heart,

Through yet another,

Lonely day…

Glutton For Punishment

I tried to forgive you

Once

But I didn’t quite succeed

So I tried to forget you

Twice

But I would never be freed


Promises

I promise myself
never again
every time
and every time
I believe it.

But the truth is
forgetting you is
a promise
I am powerless
to keep.

Running Before Walking

I know

That I’m not

Quite ready

Thoughts of him

Still rife

In my head

But if you

Come around

Happy to be

The rebound

Then I won’t kick you

Out of bed

Where Else?

I know

It comes across

Like I am rapacious

Between the sheets

But believe me

When I say

My tongue is firmly

In my cheek

Sorry Not Sorry

So now you’re back

You think I’ll crack

And give you my heart again

Well I’ve changed tack

And jumped into the sack

With your (much fitter) best friend

La Petit Mort

I don’t have to say it

You already know what I mean

Let’s to go to bed

To forget that he’s dead

And everything else in between

Come-Hither

Let’s just stop being coy

And jump right into bed

For in there we can both enjoy

A very different game instead

Random #123

“Woke up the next morning

Nikki wasn’t there

I looked all over all I found

Was a phone number on the stairs

It said thank you for a funky time

Call me up whenever you want to grind…”

Sweet Release

In this instance

I don’t want you to love me

I don’t even want to know your name

I just want you to fuck me

Again

And again

And again

One Of Many

I may have said

You were exceptional

But I’m afraid, my dear,

You were never quite

The exception
