Waterloo

People said I was getting old

They said I had started developing wrinkles on my face

They even said my hair had started greying

That I was approaching menopause

That, I had to get married

I was reluctant too

Because I was getting set in my ways

I wasn’t about to be told what to do

How to do what to do

Reluctantly I conceded

And regretted it, almost immediately

For starters, my husband snores

He eats much too loudly

And belches even louder

The foregoing irritates me

Sets my teeth on edge

I wish I had’nt listened

To what the people said

The funny reasons

I wish I had dared them

Called their bluff

Then I wouldn’t be, in this waterloo

Forever

I promised to love you, forever

You promised to love me, forever

I promised you my heart and soul

You promised me your heart and soul

I promised you an unending worship with my body

You promised me an unending worship with yours

I promised you faithfulness, forever

You promised me faithfulness, forever

I promised you would be my forever Muse

You promised you would be my forever muse

Forever , we promised

Till death do us part.

Please love me

I have watched you from a distance

have loved you from that same distance

My heart cries out for your love

Cries out for your touch, your caress

I see you with others and I cringe

I see you love others and I flinch

Please love me too

I need to be loved by you

I need you to look at me with that peculiar glint in your eye

That look of affection you give others

Please love me

Please set my heart afire

Set me aglow

Set me a lit

Please love Me

As a woman longs to be loved

Love me as one you’ll cherish, forever

Please love me

Please love me

⇐I have watched you from a distance

I have loved you from that same distance

My heart cries out for your love

Cries out for your touch, your caress

I see you with others and I cringe

I see you love others and I flinch

Please love me too

I need to be loved by you

I need you to look at me with that peculiar glint in your eye

That look of affection you give others

Please love me

Please set my heart afire

Set me aglow

Set me a lit

Please love Me

As a woman longs to be loved

Love me as one you’ll cherish, forever

Please love me

My Romance With The Bottle

My romance with the bottle
I beseech thee oh bottle!
I greet thee oh bottle!
My best friend!
My comforter!
My confidant!
My bulwark….never failing!
I have come again
As I usually come
To seek solace…in your depths!
To seek your brand of wisdom!
To seek…a dulling of the senses
To seek forgetfulness
To be lulled away…soothed in your arms…as usual
They call me drunkard
But I really couldn’t be bothered
What do they know…anyways!
They do not comprehend the enjoyment found in your depths
The particular brand of wisdom…found in your recesses
They say I stagger and fall in the gutters after exploring your depths
Bully for them..I say!
Is it their “stagger”? Is it their “fall”?
The bottle is mine….and I am his
Nothing can separate us
Oh bottle……
Thou bottle….
When I am filled to the hilt…I spew the peculiar brand of wisdom
That……can only be found in your depth
Sorrows…….relegated
Unpaid bills forgotten…
Responsibilities……cast aside
Family…..disregarded
I vow most solemnly to continue to find solace in you
Nothing can change that
Nothing will change that
I greet thee oh bottle
My loyalty lies…solely with you
Thank you for a life changing transformation
I salute thee…I salute thee!
This romance will…last forever!
