THE ENEMY AT CLOSE RANGE

THE ENEMY AT CLOSE RANGE.jpg

The enemy at close range
Loyalty sold for a piece of meat, a coin or a good dose of gossip

 

The enemy at close range
A friend with evil intentions
Searching for loopholes

 

The enemy at close range
Embraces you with a smile
Helps you clean your gun
But pulls the trigger when you turn your back

 

The enemy at close range
Disguised as a sheep but as sly as a fox
Laughs with you at your table
But as soon as it’s dusk
He runs into the shadows to break bread with your mockers

 

The enemy at close range
Knows your every move
Hears your every word
Spills all your secrets

 

The enemy at close range
Breaks your heart without a warning
And gives you quinine in place of honey

 

The enemy at close range
Is a friend with evil intentions

THOUGHTS AND LONGINGS

THOUGHTS AND LONGINGS

Cast me not away

Ye gentle soul, my love

Lead me to the beach

Where our love began and bloomed

Cradle my fragile wrists

In your strong and loving grip

Call me yours again

Bid me to you and I shall yield

Few hours to the vow

To be yours and only yours

I long to see you so

I long to hear you coo my name

Upon my pillows I lay

With tender thoughts of you and me

Uncountable wishes

My gentle heart

I melt into my satin sheets

A man for me

A bride to be

My wishes never end

Alas, I hear of your trip back to town

My finest dress of lace I wear

Fingers groomed

Hair tamed

A scent unforgettable shall steal your heart away

I lean against my window so

Knowing my gate shall be your path

I wave my hands

You smile so bright

And then the story continues to roll
