Exit Discretion

Exit Discretion

A Poem by Beregond

 

Bounty bought.
A woman on a mission.
A slinking, winking, devious apparition.
There, and then gone.
 
Make your mark, get it done.
“Seduce” is far too weak a word.
“Attack”
fits better.
 
Do your thing, the way you do.
Whisper your promises, and I’ll whisper mine.
Devoid of delusion both,
agreement is blessed unspoken.
 
Our fervent outbursts
will never be
Regretted or retracted or distraught,
And hopefully
never misunderstood.
 
Pressed for time, retreat. I’ll meet
Your urgent obtuse demands
Whenever called with
such aggression.
 
Always here to help
 
Here it comes, and there it goes.
There you are, then gone.
 
Never felt so happy to be used.
Do your thing, and run.
I’m amused.

Is this cynical, ironic, downright obtuse or empathic or - a little of all!

It speeds like an arrow through the air, right to that final line - which made me laugh aloud - a shock that, because I'd be frowning up to that point!

' Do your thing, the way you do. Whisper your promises, and I'll whisper mine. Devoid of delusion both, agreement is blessed unspoken. '

A thought-provoking post.. must direct a few reviews your way, you truly deserve them.
