Midnight Molasses

nicotine stained fingers
tap ashes
into a shot glass half
full of midnight molasses
amber buzz in my
bones
watching from across the room
she knows i got a jones
she got a body i want
to own
lickin, my lips- lettin' her know
i'm full grown
just sittin' here tryin'
to get my lie together
i ain't gonna lie
i want us to ride together
lying so i can love her 
better
and, yeah, so i can
peel her out that sweater
grab a napkin from the bar
intent on writing her a letter
expressing how i wish we were alone
the first time that i met her
order me another shot
of that midnight molasses
glance back across the room
her and him are tapping glasses

    This had me saying "Oh No!” and “What is she doing?” Nice twist, even if I was hoping for a happy ending. I especially love the picture painted at the beginning. Well done again. Kat x

    great writing filled with human desire, I enjoy the twist at the end, Brian, I agree, the strongest Men, are the ones I look up to as guides, can laugh at temptation, master it, and lead us on to greater things, with enormous character! and thanks for comments! Jim
