gold digger

killing for love? we should out grow it 
unless it's for deceivers and you know it
those less fortunate charity recievers
those pretty eye's and nails
masscara  that never fails
those that are witty for a reason
allways dressed up for the season
when you speak their eye's are wide open
tabulating the latest slogan 
until something better comes along
then swoops the shadow of lonliness
what happened to that pressence
what happened to that smile
why so suddenly anothers child
a shared togetherness for a short while
feeling so used like a rung on a ladder
the dirt from your shoes on my face
my pursuit of you a public disgrace
and when i finally see, like the prodicals son
my first thought about a gun
who? what for the reader may ask
the world cannot keep the both of us

    I am afraid I don't like anything with the word gun in it. Yes, we have gold diggers in this world and we have users in this world but in the end God does judge. love phyl

    you thought about a gun? the word 'gun' is synonymous with violence in my mind and I'm afraid the word police cannot condone it under any circumstances...
