The more it screamed
As its tongue
Trailed its lips
In a sordid dance
That waved hello
To a sweating
Bit of meat
That writhed in
Its frenzied fit

Every wet dream
Each unique in
Their own little way
Was simply not
Enough to keep
That monster at bay

Such a modest request
But at the end
Of the day
It cried for
More than the
Poor boy that
Outlived his stay

Give them a reason
To make you feel
Like a god
A pointless obsession
But this can be
So much more

A few hours
Lying awake
With a dirty secret
Sprawled across
My breath
Won't help to
Shatter this wall
That our hands
Have both built

Nothing can
Save you from
The trouble that
My eyes implanted
Right into your
Little red lips
So please
Don't be fooled
That I want
Anything more than
What already lives
Inside our mind

Shut up and listen
To two hearts that
Will never beat
To the rhythm of
The other's name
But will spill
Its blood south
To intoxicate
The mind
All the same

    Song MeaningA man attempts to rationalize his desire for tantric and meaningless sex to a woman (that is currently faithful to her significant other) with no regard to the effects it will have on either of them.
