That’s up their sleeve

One goal down they wear a frown

Everbody is grand give me you...

Until I was ejected unceremoniously from my tomb

Mother of mine you gave me the ultimate gift of life

Welcomed me to a world of opportunities untold

I became part of a growing loving fighting family

Then one fine day you presented me wi...

My Love is Like a Crème Brûlée

entry picture

My love is like a crème brûlée

Worshiping her on my knees I pray

She puts her spell on me and gently down I lay

On an inviting bed of warm comforting custard

Swimming together in an ocean of blissful tranquility

The scent of her vanilla perfume intoxicates me

She quenches my thirst and feeds my carnal hunger

We skate and glide giddy with burning desire

Across a cool crisp c...
