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!

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
