Let me be your martyr tonight
or your smoking gun
(you know you love it
when I pretend to be vulnerable)
Just wear me
and make me see your light
and don't take me
at face value
or let me over-think you.

Don't mince words
just take me prisoner
and let your lips do
what they do best,
something cataclysmic
with your hands
looped under my belt
and sliding down my hips
to that point
where I don't return.

Drop a bomb or two
let's see what you can detonate
and turn upside down
in this dirty little town
and just pray
the neighbors do not report us again,
because the last time
you burned this down

we didn't come up for air...
For Victoria

Beautiful as always. I see this one's updated from its original submission in 2009. But I hadn't seen it before, so I'm just going to favorite it now and tell you it's amazing. :]

So how long did she take to yank your clothes off after you gave this to her?
I like the phrase: you know you love it
when I pretend to be vulnerable Hidden in parentheses like it's a whispered 'dirty secret'.

So much better than hey baby.
Though sometimes a wink is all you need.
