moves

My heart is full

of so many songs

the way you move

really turns me on

Come over here

show me the stars

I just wanna be

wherever you are

turn up the heat

and turn me out

I’m your change baby

Make sure I’m ¬†spent

hands on my hips

while I bite your lips

let’s move this forward

don’t bother looking back

I’m your lady I’m your whore

I’m where it’s at

Anticipating Grace

I believe this belongs to you
a pile of broken dreams
a basket full of tears.
You said give it to you
and so I do so without fear.

You overcame
every obstacle, every trial,
you are so much more than me
but I am your child.

So, I will clean out my room
of worry and woe.
Throw out the bags
of trouble in tow.

Give the to you
without so much as a goodbye,
I believe this belongs to you
there is no need to cry.

tight skin

Tight Skin

I need to touch it

rough hands

I want them

to press my skin tightly

until I bruise

Its been a long time

way too long

Need a willing victim

to tangle myself with

Who cares his name

I just want long and lean

and need to go in search of it

Whatever happened to that woman I once was?

That would take a young thing down

in a heartbeat.

When did this virtuous bitch

take me over?

Don’t know, God

how long I can keep that promise

when all I can think of

the slide of a zipper

and the warmth inside

At this point I don’t care to know a name

Just want to take over another body

just for one night

City of Saints

I miss your arms

laced with Spanish moss

and faded beads

streets filled with music

the Mississippi calling my name.

 

In you I find safety

in you I find home,

longing to live behind shuttered windows

walk your haunted streets

in the morning fog.

 

My Crescent city

home, true home

I write you a thousand love letters

and long for you over hundreds of miles.

I’m lonely without the quarter rats

and gutter punks

the fortune tellers

even the scam artists,

they are my true family

and someday

you will be my true home

.(c) Sadie Bella

 

 

 

 

My dearest friend

I know you miss me when I’m not around

I know you are happy with our familiarity

I know you would give me the protection I need

as long we don’t say I’m your’s or your mine.

Our playtime always leads to misfortune

you initiate, instigate, poke and prod

then it goes to far

and my skin you once found soft

you can’t let yourself touch

If there were a way for you to understand

I don’t want to own you

I know you will always come around

and all that mess in your head

I would untangle in a  heartbeat

but that is your job, not mine

and I am patient

Loyal, I am that to you in every way

my dearest friend

my favorite pal

no, we aren’t lovers and may never be

but partners, yes

against the world

for one another

just hold up your end

and stop cutting me down

when you feel too close

too exposed

remember

I love you for who you are

not what you think I want you to be

Loving you isn’t the right thing to do

Arm,s spread wide

vunerable

feeling like

cant get away

How could handle

three simple words

like

I love you

when you pull me in

push me away

call me back to stay

Loving you

Isn’t the right thing to do

but I’ll keep on

carry on

and just be a friend to you
