"I know who you are and I saw what you did"

"Little white lies" she would call them. Perfectly blatant out and out lies dipped in confectioner's sugar..... "Divinity for the devil", I thought. She whipped 'em up for every occassion...."It makes him feel better" "What she doesn't know won't hurt her", and on and on and on...... And she smiled with crocodile teeth, bleached until they were stained a liar's shade of white.....And I wondered....."Whoever are you fooling?"

I'm a tattle~tale. That's what I do. I tell. I spill. I blab. I spit it all out in giant bursts of blah, blah, blah, blah, blah " and then" blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. ... I'm afraid of secrets and little white lies. They always come back, a Mini-Pin after my ankles, snapping when you least expect it. And then they haunt you.....reincarnated on instant replay....tearing at your pants legs, your heart strings, the truth......

I'm fifty now. "It is what it is"......

I watched Shannon put her lipstick on. Peel it out of the twenty dollar cellophane package and roll it across her lips. The color bored me. And then she was bee stung. Her lips began to puff and swell. She lip-linered them for effect. Ready now. For Friday night.

To woo and coo,
to raspy voice them in.
Sexalicious.
At fifty.
Chapstick in the morning.

And that lipstick on his collar.....

She was entirely unabashed
unfathomable
unrelenting
unchained

Living life on a coaster,
rolling through the blue
nettleweed shoals

"Bring it..."

She walked on a red carpet
made of dogboy's tongues
and Cireno capes bridging
across the rivers of drool

There was no way
she would ever be
unsung

Friday nights are made
for this;
dip
turn
spin
and dive in
for the kill

the dogboys fall for it
every time

El Capitan bows low
and if it's her will
he'll kiss the summit
in time to meet the dawn

Looks like I wasn't fast enough...

But as you can tell, this post really caught my imagination.

Sexilicious nettleweed...

What will you think of next?

singleton said...

Eric....

I was in the audience,
a friend of the bands,
clapping,
waving,
lighting Bics
and
singing to the
last song,
the next song,
any song they sang...
and she was swaying,
lower than the words,
dipping,
a Baskin Robbins cardboard bin empty....
No sugar on the cone,
and the crowds were watching....

Better left for late night TV.....

and
Benedryl...

Is Shannon gonna read this? Your cats have scary look-into-your-soul type eyes. Those lies might be sugar-dipped, but they're still half-baked. The truth will out at the first bite.

eric1313 said...

On a roll here and everywhere, first you and now me...

Your artwork is fantastic! I'm lovin the new stuff over at Gimmie Peace. Hats off to a true blue lady.

Nettlehead, jsyk, is a rare viral disease that affects hops....from the roots to the stem. P&L

Maithri said...

My sister you know you're gonna be Sexalicious at every age
from here to
eternity

I'm feelin you on
the lies stuff...

I'm a spiller
too

No matter how
we try
to hide
from it

the light,
always
gets us
in the end

Long may it burn,

Love to you Sexalicious one,

M

Your decor is a unique wonder unto itself! Applause!

singleton said...

Dear Friends,
I wrote you all a love letter and Blogger took it for it's own,
blew it out the window
to the vast
unknown.....
A message in a bottle,
who knows where she'll end up.....

Peace~love
are the words floating in cyberspace.....

singleton said...

Electric....She's heard my take first hand.....over and over again....And you are so right, the truth comes out at first bite...you can't find your soulmate hiding behind a Sexilicious Mask, shadow dancing.... And the parade of losers, lost souls that line up to "see the pretty lady dance"....are just Fair-goers, trading pink tickets for "This one's on me"...... And btw, I know you know this one, isn't Nettleweed a stinging flower? Or have I yet again, made up words to suit my fancy?:)

Eric....So good to have you rollin' by, stoppin' in, hangin' on the porch......The chain never broken....
And sweet changes are coming to Justgivemepeace.....on the wings of empty boxes......and the passion for peace, growing......

Sisterlove....Nettleweed! LOL!

Maithri.....
Ahhhh,
the webs woven from
little white lies
are tangled,
tainted,
a baited sticky-trap
waiting on it's prey....
And it grows.....
and grows....
until even the
Widow weaving the tale
has lost sight of
her opening lines,
the fairytale ending....

And me, Sexilicious? LOL! :)
From one spiller, to another,
Peace~love my friend....

Babs! CLink! You got it goin' on..... the tattle tell signs of true colors!

Peace~love my friends
Be true......
