Cheap Date.

Are you the wolf,

Luring me into a secluded room?

Of smoke and mirrors strategically placed?

In a crafty effort to end the game

Of cat and mouse we so brazenly played?

Well honey,

I am many things. But I'm certainly not inane.

I will hear nothing of your fickle plans,

No wedding bells or daft romance.

"Something for nothing," you demand.

Yet you expect me to so willingly succumb,

A whore for words, reluctantly consumed

Like fumes from the last cigarette of the pack.

Languidly savored till the final drag

Then exhaled into the world again?

Your argument is mad.

And yet you're thoroughly convinced!

Intoxicated by a drug, yet too cheap to pay for it.

Spare me your dreams, I have my own.

I would much rather be left alone

Than be jaded by a prick.

Miss Anthrope

It's no secret, I've been
Utterly deceived.

Not by a man, but by the
Heathen inside me.

Now anger slowly
Seeps, out through the

And yet I still
Cry out,

"Will no one set
me free?"

Will I wake up? Or is this
My destiny?

Forever building
castles, that are
Tumbled by the sea?

I'll start again
a thousand times,

Until I am

Before I love
Another, the way
You ravaged me.
