Huntress

A huntress with a long black braid

Had a dress with a slight fade

She stepped in and gladly paid

Coming quickly to my aid

I followed her with intrigue

She was quite a woman indeed

Outside she took her noble steed

And played with her necklace of turquoise bead

“Who are you?” I asked of her

As she spoke into her horse’s fur

Smelling sweetly of myrrh

The rest I’m afraid was all a blur

She put her arm around my waist

And did not hesitate

Reaching up to get a taste

Her lips were honey-laced

The huntress led me to

A cabin that was far from new

I’ll never forget the lovely view

Of being tangled up in you.

Small Town Playground Part 1

Here in a small town playground

Giggles are the only sound

Apart from water raining down

As we race round and round

I never thought that I would fall

But I guess love comes for us all

Whether it be through a thick southern drawl

Or watching you lean perfectly against the wall

The shadows could reveal

How we both feel

If we let this be real

But I do all I’ve ever known

Run away from you and towards my home

I’ll never pick up the phone

I can’t see these feelings as my own

I shed a tear

Wishing you were near

These feelings sear

But I can only run into the fear

The Hotel

There is an edge of the night

Where love and lust fight

Under a dim bar light

 

They’re both not the type

But about to lose sight

Of wrong and right

 

They’re both so clever

Business or pleasure?

It’s just whatever

 

Both thinking it won’t sever

Their relationships with whomever

Because they’ll find out, well, never!

 

Chasing sparks and fireworks

Passing the knowing smile of the clerk’s

Not caring who whose heart hurts

Or that this will start the waterworks

 

They entertain their savage lust

Betraying those who trust

Soon the hotel door will bust

And their little fling combust

Ignite

We went down to the stream

To live out a dream

Away from those who have seen

The desire kindled in between

The trees surround

And drowned out the sound

Of the way our hearts pound

The fire burning all around

A spark would ignite

The edge of the night

While you take delight

In holding me tight

 

Here With Me

Somehow I thought you’d be here

Right where I left you

I’ve come back to relive

The moment I first met you

I’m drowning in the memory

Of the people we used to be

How could such a tragedy

Take you into eternity?

How we rewrote history

Is still quite a mystery

Although we took the victory

I wish you were still here with me

The Way You See Me

I have freckles but you don’t seem to mind

It’s alright, we’re just killing time

I’m not strong or thin or a dime

None of the things boys want to find

My hair is brown and plain

And my eyes are just the same

But you just call my name

And say it’s such a shame

You wish I could borrow your eyes

You say I’d be in for a surprise

Maybe not even recognize

This body that is my disguise

What would I do if I saw myself the way you do?

I’d think it was too good to be true

You say you are among the lucky few

To really know me like you do

I don’t know if what you say is true

But I see you the same way too

Hide Your Heart

Hide your heart

It’s the hardest part

But if we don’t

They’ll tear us apart

Experts of suppression

Masters of self-deception

Deny the affection

Conceal the redirection

What you feel

Might be real

But if you reveal…

Well, you know the deal

Wait for the day

We hope comes our way

When we can’t keep at bay

What our hearts want to say

And it will be safe

It won’t be a mistake

Love can finally give

And freely take

The Temptress

A man walked down a path one day

Searching for something along the way

Not for fortune or for fame

But for her of legendary name

She’s wise and kind

Soon he will find

She’ll blow his mind

His soul becoming intertwined

Her personality is robust

Rivaled only by his lust

His heart she will adjust

He will fall because he must

Is this temptress all she seems?

Is she the woman of his dreams?

Did he find what he esteems?

Did he fall for her schemes?

I’m afraid I just can’t say

Because your lips are in the way

A Royal Affair

 

Love is in the air

But do we dare?

No time to prepare

For a royal love affair

Our situation is dire

Those who inquire

Tell the squire

That it’s you I admire

Though they conspire

I’ll never tire

Of your desire

On a wild hair

I meet you there

And when you stare

You are so fair

What would transpire

Would be sung by the choir

And played by the lyre

We could call a ceasefire

But our hearts are singed with desire

And burned by the fire

My resolve melts on the pyre

It’s you I require

Dressed in beautiful attire

I’ll walk through hell-fire

For you, my good sire.
