Breathe

Breathe

When life shakes our shared realm

And chaos drives us shamelessly mad

Dreams incinerated in a blistering whelm

While passion steers our twisted sights

 

Breathe

When he leers up at me with hungry eyes

With his face buried deep

Hands clenched around my thighs

Moving oceans from below my belly

 

Breathe

While long fingers get lost inside me

Then move to wrap around my neck

Gripping tight, leading me to a place so free

And lips that bring me back to Earth

 

Breathe

When sacred oaths are bound and broken

By greedy souls who want it all

They run and take a silky token

Leaving their mark on tortured hearts

 

Breathe

When stars are lost in perilous stares

Who lure us out and seize our innocence

And all the devilry of silly dares

Will never match the treachery

Of his savage, hollow glare

 

Yet through this all

I will learn to breathe

Use me

Use me

For I am a forgotten wish

A shiny coin tossed in a beaten well

The pretty petals plucked from a dainty flower

Stunning stars sprinkling the sapphire sky

That once held your gaze and granted your wish

Now hidden in the light of a new day

While you search for happiness in the sun

 

Use me

For my body is nothing more than dust and wind

I can damage your soul in a whirlwind of hate

Like a tornado spiraling out of control

With no direction and even less grace

An earthquake that claims more than you were willing to give

Crumbling your world into the very dust

You once left me in when you walked away

 

Use me

For my mind is as wicked as it is magnificent

Like a terrifying predator ripping through its kill

Smearing rich blood on its exotic coat

A fleeting romance that ends in woeful heartache

A love letter that turns ugly

Sealed with my signature red lips

Because I have no shame

 

Use me

For I have held your fickle heart in mine

Like a golden locket without a picture

A withering book with faded words and lost pages

The midnight sky with no moon in sight

A bed with two pillows and a vacant side

A lifeless body missing its soul

And just like that, you’ve rendered me empty

I Don’t Know How

I don’t know how to be good for you

I don’t know how to be what you need

With everything I’ve done

And all that I’ve said

All I want is to be just that

But I don’t know how

 

I don’t know how to be right for you

I don’t know how to be there for you

I wish I could with all my heart

So I can finally end my search

With you and you only

But I just don’t know how

 

I don’t know how to be on fire for you

I don’t know how to be careful with you

I hope to learn for my soul’s sake

So life doesn’t feel this lonely

And I won’t give up so easily

But I really don’t know how

 

I don’t know how to be me with you

I don’t know how be full with you

With all the hardships I’ve faced

And every lesson I’ve learned

You would think I could do so

But sadly, I don’t know how

Musician’s Muse

 

Touch me with your skilled hands

Cradle me in your strong embrace

Play me like I’m the only instrument

Your fingers have ever craved to trace

 

Strum my skin with delicate strokes

Graze my curves, soft and smooth

Turn my moans into a sweet serenade

Use me if only just to soothe

 

Bask in every melodious note

Pluck wherever it feels right

Squeeze my wrists like you would

The neck of your guitar so tight

 

Scratch a little if you must

Don’t be afraid to shred too rough

Make it wild, make me yours

Revel in my silky buff
