Insomniac Inscriptions

On Seduction

I am seduced by words, 

By cadence,

complexity and sound

By movement and the way you shape your mouth

To say words I’ve heard a thousand times before

Edge of Love

This love it seems will be the end of us
The end of lust
The end of trust

This love it seems will conquer us
Clobber us
And smother us

This love is on the ledge of love
The edge of love
The end of love

A need for you

I have a need for you

To taste the substance of your bleeding heart

The need to mould you

To cast you and bronze you.

I have this need to mark you

To write the rhythm of your beating heart

The need to own you

Need my needs to control you

I have a need to move you

To hold your tender pulsing heart in my palm

The need to bruise you

Let my love afflict you.

Lowest Low

I’m sorry that I hurt you so

This love it seems,

Just would not grow

And when your seed I tried to sow

The water then

Refused to flow

I think the soil died long ago

When my heart hit

Its lowest low

Rolling Stone

My Papa was a rolling stone

My Mama, she developed a habit

My Papa was a rolling stone

My Mama, she developed a habit

She would slip some vicks in my tea

Then she’d drink herself to sleep

My Papa was a rolling stone

My Mama, she developed a habit

Cry herself to sleep at night

And I’d pray to God to make it right

My Papa was a rolling stone

My Mama, she developed a habit

She would lie next to me at night

Tell me just to hold on tight

If my Papa was a rolling stone

My Mama she developed a habit

How Can

How can there be war and famine

With you here, more than I imagined

How can there be any suffering

When I lay here in blissful longing

How can there be any pain,

Here tucked in, safe from the rain,

How can I know distress

As I lay here, watch you undress

How can there ever be death

When I feel I could live forever

And if we go, we go together

How then could life be any better?
