Dancing on the Edge

Standing on the balcony ledge,

You surprise me with a kiss.

This is where we begin to dance on the edge

Because if you leave, everything about you I will miss.

Like the way you catch my eye

And tell me you love me

In such ways that make me sigh

And hope forever yours I’ll be.

Or the way you laugh at things I say

And how you make sure I’m comfortable when we lie

Side by side while our elbows touch.

The only thing I need to know

Is exactly how much

You love me and when it will show.

But all we have is now-

As the curtains are closing, we take our bow.

Siren

Flowing red hair

Catching light

Catching fire

Long wavy tendrils

Caressing her body

Like the desire of your hands.

 

You hear her-

Her voice a cage

Surrounding you

Holding you captive

As you listen to the tune in her voice

Your ankles are shackled

The hum in her throat

Your hands are bound.

She sings her song

And your soul is hers.

Ruby

I’ll write you as I please,

A character in my story

Is all you’ll ever be

 

I’ll make you dance

I’ll make you sing

I’ll make you fall in love with me

 

When I feel I’m in over my head

I’ll cut your strings, puppet,

And set you free.

Seduction

Darkness

 

Creeping through alleys

Toward unsuspecting victims

 

I’ll capture you

A spider with a fly

In my web of lies

 

I’m hungry

 

Looking for food

 

Fulfilled by lust

 

You look at me

Tell me you love me

Tell me you want me

 

And I’m satisfied.

The Way We Talk

Words taking flight

On a trip, traveling up my throat

Flitting across my tongue

And playing at the tip

Where they brush past my lips

And escape.

But what happens

When there are no words?

A different form of communication

Evolves without trying.

Your lips on mine-

The pressure, lingering, intensity

All signs that show me

What you want, need, desire.

A secret code, no-

A secret passed

From one pair of lips to another

A conversation that lasts a lifetime.

This language is our own.

Puzzles

As we stand in a room of puzzles
No puzzle more intricate than us

With your eyes trained on me
Searching for a reaction
But what am I supposed to do?
You always had a way
To make my knees weak with lust
You always had a way
But what am I supposed to do?
Searching for a reaction
With your eyes trained on me

No puzzle more intricate than us
As we stand in a room of puzzles.
