Disappointed

Look at me with lidded eyes

your hands beside my head

bring your lips to mine

letting me taste the sweetness.

Feeling the heat

watching it rise

I cannot hide my desire

my wants

my needs from you.

Sitting side by side

finished

you ask with bated breath

‘how was it?’

How can I tell you?

What can I say?

Meh-I’ve had better.’

The icing on the cake.

Balance

They met in the seediest of places

where no one could bother their game

as they flip the coin of life

to see who the winner is.

With tequila in hand

and several shots down

they recount the last year

and the deeds that they found.

A catalogue :

One full of sins

Lust.

Sloth.

Envy.

Pride.

One full of virtues

Chastity.

Diligence

Kindness.

Humility.

With each story told

the tally became clear

once more it would be a tie.

With clasped hands

they shook good night

bade each other farewell

until the next year.

Stories will once more be told

good and evil

a balance always…….

for where one sins

one repents.
