DID I SAY YEARS OR FEARS?
A thousand years ago when I was very young
Early on I learned to hold my tongue
Five hundred years ago when I was a bit more mature
I leaned not to hold the hand of a pretty lady who’s too impure
Impurities are poison to the body of love loudly declared
When infections combined with imperfections are bared
An adulterous adult woman adulterated the soul we each shared
While the equine of inequalities nostrils flared
We were both discontented and she was dispassionate as well
I’d never been to paradise yet with surety I’m headed for hell
Rapture ruptured and bliss began, as a snake, to horridly hiss
While ecstasy exacted an excuse for every exciting yet un-kindled kiss
For a thousand years I have lived thus far
Yet purposefully my tongue remains sealed as if by steaming tar
Lovely ladies have come and gone precisely like the seasons
And they all have a rational why they leave but they’re all f*cking ridiculous reasons
