David Franks on WEEKLY WALKABOUTSVERSE, E.G., 222 of 230: FROM THE MINORITY (8 hours ago)
She is fire,
Get close and she will melt your heart,
The light in your darkest hour
But play with her and you'll get burnt.
She is earth,
Her roots rich with self-love and worth,
The natural evolution females seek
But mess with her nature,
And she'll bring forth her seismic wrath.
She is air,
Free and not confined,
Moves like the wind and her path kno...

she used to set me on fire
her eyes lit my every day
that touch a breath of silk
voice so alluring and fey
magic slipped into reverse
our love shrinks unspoken
chemistry fell out of kilter
her fairy wand has broken
careless now, her moods
weaving so casual gashes,
disdain on that elfin face,
a tongue with fifty lashes
bored and up to mischief

I'm a reptile
But I'm warmer
When I'm with you
You stir something in me
Like I'm always on the edge of something
There’s a chemical reaction between us
It makes me feel like static energy
Could we really be the result of chance?
Can chance pull like a magnet?
Or is this kismet?
It runs fast, long, rife
It is our double life
We share a secret world t...

Its always the same old story
I meet a woman and we click
We go out for a while and talk
Time seems to go by so quick
After a bit something happens
Signs of unease appear, frowns,
My mask slipped for she's seen
The dark side of my downs
Moods are fatal for couples
You have to banter and smile
Hide the despond with a grin
Play happy families for a while...

The chemistry of lock-down music is key the
Need to look after your
Mood paramount so
Facing an hour or two of ambivalent toil
I tried Macarthur Park
Then Easter Parade and
Now I'm wondering if Richard Harris
Ever met Judy Garland
Or if she was pals with Ginger
Though I suspect not, anyway its
Something to research tomorrow
Between a chorus of tap-dancing e-mails a...

We’ve a chemical romance, we’ve got chemistry
We have covalent bonds that attract you and me
Our shared electron pairs formed a lasting attraction
We’re drawn to each other, a combination reaction
Our chemical elements were destined to bind
My yin and your yang complete and defined
When I’m in your embrace its Oxytocin heaven
You’re sweeter than Carbon12, H...

I wasn't dead,
just never alive
all for a dive.
A dyspraxic in a speedboat
as I struggled to swim
in shark infested waters
but I won't let them win.
The rewards of success
for creating a mess
an unmade bed
for an economy's left.
People can study
and some even praise
others are starstruck
