One of Life’s Ugly Little Mysteries

with 2 comments

how is it
that a woman’s
surrender
has more value
when
bartered for with
negotiations?
is the pretense
of possible affection and plattitude
truly
more important
than honest attraction?
is
the celebration a woman’s
tongue makes
as it glides
against the
sandpaper, raw-silk
of your skin
less erotic or surreal
because of the
absense of

it’s cost?

  2. yes, this seems raw and animalistic.
    “the celebration a woman’s
    tongue makes
    as it glides
    against the
    sandpaper, raw-silk
    of your skin”
    love this.
