By A Velvet Tongue

I detest you..
I want you
Like a breath that is haggard ...hushed.

I'll Make you
...And break you..
A malignant, stagnant rush..

I taste you
...and spit you
poison is this crush

I watch you
...and stalk you
Lust fuels a virgin's blush

What lies behind those liquid pools
Hued of the finest brandy...

Creamed decadence flows past my lips
your taste...bittersweet candy..

Come coil your darkness ,around my thighs
Unfurl wicked delights upon me..

Beckon the nectar from my wounds..
A Tourniquet....cut free...

I crave you
I torture you
With velvet words and lies

I'll tempt you
I'll Keep you
Mock your pitious cries..

I tease you
and slice you
to a shredded pile

I'll damn you
and free you
my beauty ,dark and vile

I hide you
and force you
fully in the light

I'll wake you
and ride you
a dozen darkened nights

I love you
I taunt you
Keeping you at bay..

I rule you
Mold you...
You'd have it no other way...
