Going down


When it goes
Down it goes
Down in flames
And when it ends
It ends in pain.

(this was about love affairs when they end)

(But later I got to be thinking about how 'going down' took on a new meaning later in my life so a rewrite was in order.)

When I go
Down I go
Down between your legs
And when it ends
It ends in ecstasy!
