Ruddy Rose had reeled in reservationjosyift 2022
and Jasmine whitened wildly in fear
when Plum had plucked pink petals to reveal
her purple plumps – Alas, love’s in the air!
“Eat Your Heart Out”
What a joy to have passion stolen andjosyift 2022
Sliced – Savored! Like a candied chocolate orange.
What a fine line to walk between love and
Crime! Sweet delicacies of a heart torn.
With a laugh and a smile, we’d say hi…josyift 2022
A right kiss, left kiss, lipstick on my cheek.
Then, like rose petals, you’d flutter on by…
With your sillage leaving me high and weak…
We reached out – longingly – in clouds of smoke,josyift 2022
But naive hands found only stems and thorns.
The incense didn’t soothe – we only choked
For love that keeps us willing to be torn.
Clearing the Air
This incense always puts me in a mood –josyift 2022
Makes me feel addicted, still, to you.
I’m just the child lost out in a woods
But fairy-tales are never coming true.
