For You, Babe

The days burn

almost as much

as the nights

ever did

and yes you’re still a

blonde maniac

 

but your tits are good

and your arse is good

and your pussy is

very good

 

and I love that

small roll of fat

over your jeans

 

or the way you

spit out your gum or

smoke half a cigarette

or belch

just like a man

 

It’s these little things that

numb the heavy burn

that almost heal

this pain

 

like it’s only temporary

of course

 

like you

like me

like this

 

moment

right now

 

going

out

 

of our minds

Some times the small things stack up into mountains - you tell this story wittily and well - liked the small roll of fat over the jeans bit

I like this. (Is she the other side of your Night Mare?) I love the way you've described the endearing traits of a loved one. It can just be the tilt of an eyebrow when somebody smiles - and all is forgiven, the world a brighter place.
