“on higher heels” by LadyHawk

bad boys
lickety split
up my center and down
my spine
tingle me, shackle me
singe me, cringe me
wicked boys
yes, I have been their
wind up toy
roll me over
unlike a four leaf clover
unlucky in love
yes, you are the ones
I shave my legs for
open, open, open
pound on the door frenzy
you don’t deserve me
but I have served myself up
on your king size platter
it didn’t matter
I didn’t matter
what was the matter
with me?
eat me, deplete me, complete me
you are not worthy
but I will step right up
and be your tattooed lady
brand me, stick me, prick me
lick me like candy
chug me, drug me, hug me
charm me, creep me, crawl me
I love you,
all of you
that got away
and
thank God you got away
and I am still standing
on higher heels
today
and it feels
oh…so good

“NOW I LIKE YOU” by Alexis Rhone Fancher

Fancher & Alexis

I used to like bad boys,
but now I like you.

I choose you in spite of my previous bad choices.
I choose you because you’re not my type.
I choose you although you make a good living.
I choose you because you’re not James Dean.

I used to like bad boys,
but now I like you.

I choose you although you are kind and mature.
I choose you although you won’t forget my birthday.
I choose you although you won’t betray me.
I choose you although you won’t break my heart.

I used to like bad boys,
but now I like you.

I choose you now that drummers have lost their allure.
I choose you now after two false starts.
I choose you now that I’ve finally come to my senses.
I choose you, and not a moment too soon.

I used to like bad boys
but now I like you.

I choose you to finish my sentences.
I choose you to be my partner in crime.
I choose you to be my nights’ companion.
I choose you till the end of time.

I used to like bad boys,
but now I like you.
