Two Whiskey Rocks and Satin

You were a taste

A sip

That burned my lips, tongue, throat

Warmed my belly

Eased my anxiety

Precise in your seduction

You lured me in

A gentle tug here

A slow burn there

It’s been over five years since our first kiss

How I miss your sweetness

The sting of your dilution

Many affairs happened under

Your envious glare

The only mistress

They were nothing compared to you

I longed for you all day

Watching the minutes tick away

For our reunion

My devotion to my thirst of you

Has ruined my goals



Wasted away in dripping haze

Of this fantasy

I needed to be numb

You my sultry device

I’m sickened at the union we’ve made

All the women I’ve laid

Under your intoxication

I’m dependent

Your slave

That’s the craft that you were made

I want my dreams back

Minutes wasted chugging your poison

What was once a savored sip

Turned to clawing for the last drip

You’ve ruined my prestige

Now I’m diseased and ill

I’d still give most of it away

For one more swill of

Your burn.
