Why Should I Come Running To You?

Why should I come running to you
When you’re the one who fled?

And I’m not the chased
Yet I desire solely
To be the latter
Humor me
Lift your light feet
And hunt for my heart

The world moves on

Silenced by your
Radiant spirit

Each fungus.

Openly penetrate,

Underwent very

Superfluously equating the reasons for "why not",
And as the angels doth not romance,

An preposterously  appropriate cheer dances with the wind,
......It understands the value of the humor.

Caramel (Adult Humor)

No taste as sweet
As liquid love
It’s desire in a jar
Just pour it out
Upon your dish
A tempting treat by far
Just let it ooze
Let it cover
Every morsel, every bite
So pour it out
Upon your lover 
Treat yourself tonight

They say he sailed the seas with fear.
    Of his stories told
    Of his bravery so bold,
For he went nowhere, for he could not steer.
