warning...must be smoking

warning...must be smoking

A Poem by Shirlena

Listening to "Electric Love"

swerving streets of peaches and tiers

entered a near whispered establishment

sacrificing myself for  a living

later dodging menacing eyes and diabolical glares


popped the wiry mechanism past one lobe

cause then I could slide, escape to isles of fantasia

ears tickled by a man with a velvet larynx

sexy gravel ripples through his vocals...him saying

Hey baby don’t you wanna…

head nods between ecstasy beats trickled anesthesia

he repeats don’t you wanna ...

I murmur inebriated...don't you wanna what

until his answer is make a baby

his lyrics continue to saunter with declarations we can name it after me

euphonic hypnosis I’m able to break through

his tone convincing...masculine Lorelei 

but I’m here and he is in some foreign world fusion pleading

seduction through rhaposdy…over there

mystical zone with pleasured hearing...dangerous cocktail

fortunately I am where my anatomy is neutral…

gingerly but certainly coming to

Music certainly does have that effect on one's psyche, I could get lost listening to some lyrics, they can change your state of being in that moment, don't think they could make me have a baby though. Love this stirring repartee.

Ha I've had my three tyvm, babies turn into adults, well they're boys so not really haha
This was eclectic. I like the lounge feel to the write. He wants to make a baby? Ha. Really? Oh well, it is a good thing to not be in close proximity to this man. Unless he plans on raising it and caring for it twenty- four / seven the next 20 years...

Yes, wake up. Gingerly as you can.
Wonderfully done.

Hauntingly beautiful is your poem today. A certain smokey charm fills this piece with a longing and a desire and I am lost somewhere between the stage and that table over there. Shirlena, this took me there...I felt good...I loved this.
