I Told You So

The drapes are closed, no light shines through,

Darkness exceeds expectations.

Lovers find their way by feel, stubbed toes not withstanding.

Stifled giggles, shedding of clothes, stumbling drunk in anticipation,

Oh there you are! A touch, a taste, bodies all aquiver,

Hesitate on the precipice. Pull away, fall into, immerse, succumb.

Oh mercy!


Peace, people.

Deadlier Sins

Written in response to the Daily Post’s Daily Prompt: 

Remember the seven cardinal sins? You’re given the serious task of adding a new one to the list — another trait or behavior you find particularly unacceptable, for whatever reason. What’s sin #8 for you? Why?

First students, let’s review those pesky seven deadly sins: 

My personal favorite–lust,
followed in order of the sins
to which I’ve succumbed
in order of frequency
from greatest to least:
sloth, (yes, i’m wicked lazy)
pride, (and darned proud of it,)
gluttony (i’ll toast again to that!)
with just a soupçon of
greed, wrath, and envy,
to make me truly interesting.

I nominate intolerance 
to take its rightful
place among these
numbered transgressions.
Divisive and shaming,
a barrier to peace;
bigotry makes no
loving concessions.

Peace, people.
