sips of little death (by: eddy styx)

sips of little death
by: eddy styx

a stream of hot breath
on the back of your neck,
kisses full of little death
which you greedily gobble down

what must you be thinking?
if you thought at all.
what is it you are drinking?
is that absinthe in your chalise?

lay down on your bed with open arms,
invitation on your lips
displaying heated charms
expecting a ten-fold return.

never do you have a thought,
for delayed payment
of sexual favors bought
with credit overdue.

you only take, never give,
your life runs out
like a giant sieve
in your oblivion.

you see your death within my eyes
along with lengthening shadows,
only starting now to realize
soon, you'll be hanging at my gallows!

    Always taking, never giving: I am not surprised what with wormwood on the lips and the satisfaction of aniseed on the palate - a goblet of such refreshment and one would not have a care in the world. A fascinating read. Enjoyed it very much. Joe

    • Candlewitch

      thank you, Joe,

      you are very perceptive! I appreciate your reading and responding!

      ever, eddy

      Oh Eddy, the praying mantis in you is apparent here as you play with your food. Does your hunger sometimes find you tired of the pre-feast appetisers or are such nuptials a necessity - stimulating your appetite?

      • Candlewitch

        dear dusk arising,

        I am a ritualistic and sadistic S.O.B. LOL! I find order within chaos! and I much enjoy your observations 😉

        ever, eddy

      • Heartwriter

        Boy you sure give Eddy some hot breath. Lol. Spooky.

        • Candlewitch

          as always, i like hearing from you! 🙂

          ever, eddy

          If they only take they deserve to their death win their eyes eddy.

          • Candlewitch

            thank you, Goldfinch 😉

            ever, eddy
