Our Special Relationship
I searched for you across wild oceans,
Never daring to dream that I would find
Such a dirty, dangerous, delicious passion
Which after more than 400 summers, still burns hot.
But you are colder now.
When I discovered your riches,
I knew I had to possess you entirely.
The blood lost and the blood lust
Was worth it to make you mine.
But you are bolder now.
I never wanted to set you free.
Your Declaration of Independence nearly destroyed me.
I had to accept your right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,
To lose you completely would be unbearable.
You are the scolder now.
Like a white knight, your white light saved me,
As it seared through flesh, turning skin inside out and the whole world upside down.
You were Oversexed and Overpaid,
But I needed you Over Here beside me.
You are the shoulder now.
Through time and space, our destructive power has bound us together,
I have fallen, my heart is given, my soul is sold.
I’d lie for you; I’d die for you;
Give tooth for tooth and eye for eye for you.
It’s all in a sexed up folder now.
Of late, others say you have grown so ugly,
Distorted and deranged with and beyond belief,
Frenzied and overcome with hate, but I still love you,
Still long for our special relationship.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder now.
