Songs in Playlists

On your down days, I promise I'll be by your side reading lyrics again from songs we made in our playlists. I can still see you coming for the speaker, we used to play next to your bed. Those perfect moments, time was different I came to take you, I know, oh I know I'm…

On My Way

Hit me up if you fall I could make things feel all better and good. Simple promises by even simpler words you can pay me back by rebounding, let's sit elbows to elbows at dinner sharing conversations and the food. It's always about the food first, followed by sex and dessert at 3am. It's better…

The Drop

Don't stand here next to me the drop will be here in a few minutes. The price being paid is unexpected, a man approaches and offers to do it, I refuse any and all help. I'm standing anxiously at the exact spot, the drop's instructions were explicit. Across my left shoulder is a strip bar…

Shine

When need and want are mixed, waiting on someone is impossible. Just hurry and finish your shift, she can easily feel the pressure too.

Manicure

Buried in bed alongside her a girl twists the sheets, she can't stop smiling, her tourniquet is tied tightly around our waists. She wants an answer, it's impossible to say no to that. She frantically looks for nail polish and insists I'm in charge for how her toes looks tonight. She asks why I have…
