Treasure Island

Steven SRS

(Oct.27 1957 / Oakland California)

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!

    Well, I can honestly say that I appreciated the hinting in the first, more so than the direct. I know, there's great irony in my having made this comment! ! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
