A Poem by phantom pains

because you were there when she wasn't.

Her lips taste like honey, but they don't talk so sweet.
Floating down the river, a request hard to meet.
Far too often we say things we don't mean, 
And my heart is heavy with these words that I sing. 
She said "don't take chances on rough one'e like me,
I kick up dust and leave when you can't see". 
Well, my eyes are open and the dust hits my eyes,
And I see.
