Domesticated Whore

WOMAN

i really love you

i truly  

honestly i do

somewhere i imagined happiness was you

and i did get you and i was really really happy

back then

but i’m not too happy right now

please do know that it’s not you

i long for a particular happiness 

but still

it alludes me

it worries me

it bothers me

it haunts me

for you see 

i really don’t want to lose you

i actually can’t imagine a life without you 

for you get me

and i get you

but still

my only love

i’m not happy

i want to be happy happy

i want a  happiness that is sunny

i  want a happiness that is neither glum nor dreary 

i want full-guarantee of no more overcast skies

i don’t know why

for you do make me happy

but somehow

deep down i’m still so so blue

MAN

sharing the same bed with the same man since right after high school

others pray for this but i feel like a fool

imagine not knowing the touch of another

only being held

only being revealed

to one lover

don’t be naive and think that we all don’t have desires

i’ve been naive for too long

and my desires seem to be outside of the home

would have done it a while ago if i was sure i’d get away

from these kids and this man for a little while i just want to get away

wake up one day without this boring housewife life

spend some time in the clubs enjoying the nightlife

be ravished by someone who i have no feelings for

doing all of the things that would make you call me a whore

might sound bad but i’d be willing to do more

just to know the feeling of freedom

to be with a man and know i don’t need him

to leave when i want and not worry about feeding him

but those desires are lost because i’m a wife and a mother

can’t have fly by nights or even a secret lover

so my lusts are pent up and ready to burst

and i accept it all because i chose family first
