Who's Gonna Walk Me Home
dmartin

It was more than just bound to happen,
 1
it was more
 2
like poisoned lips
 3
and a kiss you couldn't pass up,
 4
it was literally devil's food,
 5
temptation abound
 6
filling the room with more envy than lust,
 7
trust me,
 8
she is always worth it when in the beginning.
 9
 
 
set phasers to stun,
 10
she would pierce your heart with her eyes
 11
if she could,
 12
wouldn't care
 13
much less think about you,
 14
your trials
 15
or the painstaking nights that surely followed,
 16
consuming your soul
 17
and swallowing you whole.
 18
 
 
don't apologize,
 19
take it on the chin
 20
before you take it to heart,
 21
before the ride begins
 22
and the latch insecurely secures you.
 23
If you can bring yourself to the bottom,
 24
only to drag yourself out of the empty glass,
 25
walk before she ever has the chance to ask you...
 26
"who's gonna walk me home?"
