gripped around the curvatures
a glass of yellow liquid swirls
tears of bourbon, legs remain
like what is to become of you

a bitter sip for him to taste
a laid out path for him to take
another gulp
another chance let slipped away

these ticks share nothing with the past
as bourbon can be refilled
thoughts of their minds entranced, entwined
will slowly, surely, drift away

a cherry face and cynic's smile
etched and burned into the mind
every glass of yellow sin
every picture of angel's kin

at the mercy of his touch
his fingertips call into action
endless gulps of her soft skin
wasted on anothers soul

and all that I can do is sip
