Venus

The devil is a
Black widow spider who catches
Men in her web

She is a siren who
lures her prey – unwary males upon
The rocks of despair

With a flashy smile a
Bit of cleavage – a shake of her tail
She draws men astray

Casts them aside
When she’s through using them
Takes all they have

Leaves em broken
Hearted – their bank accounts empty
For another fool

Hanging On

My heart did
Not ask to be born into this
Cruel world

Nor choose the
Pain endured at the hands
Of many others

It only seeks
To make the best of a very
Bad situation

To go on living
When all it wants to do is
To say goodbye
