24

Never again will I be twenty-four
dancing across a filthy club floor
fervently seeking the moment du jour
the same I remain down to my core.

Best Worst Case

How do you do that thing you do?
The one that got me wrapped up into you.
Around your finger, hopelessly spun,
at least until you are finally done.

Why must I try to close my eyes
to what you have made so obviously plain?
Scrawl another name upon your list,
the faceless names that you will never miss.

I’m hoping for the best case
knowing it’s a mistake.
The worst will always find me.
A secret smile on your face,
knowing it’s the worst case.
Just another romantic would-be.

Why would I still persist
just to fight the tide of loneliness?
Especially when it’s so well-known,
one day we’ll all die and die alone.

How do you do that thing you do?
The one that got me wrapped up into you.
Around your finger, hopelessly spun,
like running headlong toward a loaded gun.

I’m hoping for the best case,
knowing it’s a mistake.
The worst will always find me.
A secret smile on your face,
knowing it’s the worst case.
Just another romantic would-be.

Just Go

Oh, and I’m feeling lost and unsure,
caught at a juncture and I don’t know what for.
Mulling it over, forward and backward,
reeling between indifference and concern.

Why have you forsaken me?
Why do you want to break me?

Just go, and I’ll be okay, some day, if you will just go.
And I would give anything if you would just go.

Insatiable

Whiskey breath with a cigarette chaser,
spots of stubble missed by your razor,
just a hint of sweat and palpable lust,
pulling you closer with every thrust.

I want to turn you inside out,
devour every piece and swallow every doubt.
I want to turn you inside out,
devour every piece and swallow every doubt.

Vodka smiles and a waft of harsh smoke
pale white flesh, his hands around my throat.
Fresh and clean, but what lies underneath
is a heart full of desire, come into me.

I want to turn you inside out,
devour every piece and swallow every doubt.
I want to turn you inside out,
devour every piece and swallow every doubt.
