when we were tender
jenakajoffer

you were just a boy
 1
when we first locked hips
 2
at the old creamery–
 3
the milk spilt
 4
and i tried to peek inside your nappy
 5
but a shy little jerk
 6
lasooed my eyes shut.
 7
 
 
i grew older and i
 8
bled in the strawberry patch;
 9
sometimes i cried and you'd
 10
bang me into the floorboards–
 11
the barn was cold and your teeth
 12
chattered on my tits
 13
while the bullets grazed
 14
your cuddy cheeks.
 15
 
 
i cleaned you like a cat.
 16
you were such a dirty blanket
 17
clocking out the dairy
 18
and i was so slick, so oral.
 19
 
 
you grew older
 20
and your locks weren't so golden
 21
like a girl,
 22
but still wet and sometimes tousled–
 23
 
 
you were dark and you creaked on me
 24
with that rainbow buggy.
 25
sometimes my throat clogged
 26
and you'd give me the snake,
 27
sometimes we felt so loved.

Peak inside your nappy? so you mean to peek?

You have gone from bad to worse.

Thank you

The ending seems rather a desperate finish
 — unknown

i want more!
 — DeformedLion

it's not a desperate finish but i do feel it's a little abrupt.  i think it needs more rainbow creme to ease the exit.

I think it needs to be deleted completely.
 — unknown

No I'm not deleting it. It's good for me to work on something. I really like my bill poems and I know this one isn't nearly as good as the others; I'm not trying to fool anyone, this is missing that secret ingredient, I feel it.

Thanks for your opinion :)

This may be a real inappropriate comment, or maybe just wildly misunderstood...

But I get a real Forrest Gump "Do you love me, Jenny" vibe off of this one, in a much more tacit and sensual way.

I adore this piece.

You should know what is being said about you, by someone who you think is so great!

hi ponyexpress, your comment was very interesting and kind of cool too.  funny, these poems always ring with a certain factor; the age factor, the dominant/submissive factor, the intelligence factor, the power struggle...it's kinda nutty and repetitive in ways, but never boring to write.  
it's pretty fun. :D
