Absent in leave ©

Modest Maiden carrying hidden restraint

Travel far to unburden love,

In masquerade absent of paint

The town is red; before you chose

Flight for fancy, expensive, and free

To meet, to toast upon a beach,

Friend to frank, and subtlety,

So close at home, but out of reach,

Debauched law of intermingling;

Same diffidence forces conformity

Depraved, you dance, avoiding their sins.

I hope you had the time of your life.

—–For when same ceiling stares back at thee

—–You’ll dream that same person again to be.

Prudish Salad ©

Why praise sons who dig, at father’s false claims

While child ‘fraid to gamble, sweet treasure chest

Should be criticised, for not making gains,

When sat in her seat, alone she feels blessed.

All’s obtainable; how do all obtain?

Age burrows regardless, haphazard in field

Chastity is nothing, Red Letters blamed,

Experience everything, tis nowt we shield!

Sins done in shadow, need not come to light

Fully clothed, we are emperor underneath

My Siren why hide, my most valuable sight

To carry dearly, till my maker meet.

Why must we turn green, at pleasures we seek,

At others who’ve lived them, tasted the sweet.

Bachelor’s conundrum ©

Internal conflict breaches sanctity of bed

Needs and wonts tumble on battleground in head,

Change shape of Venus, to light the night sky

Bending curvature, gravity to defy

Bijou-terie a la concubine.  Strength

cuts delightful Delilah – absent in quake,

And Alma-mater rushes so to duplicate.

What’s due, be due, servitude:

Lover to wife, a changing role

Daughter to mother, dividing soul.

Radiance in nurture, expanding chest

Consoling pillow, for life’s greatest test.
