    AFTER YOU

    To him I was an afterthought
    I fell short of the moon
    Never reached the stars
    Didn't light the night sky or get him high
    Set his skin on fire with the burn of my tongue
    Or the sway of my hips
    Dripping venom from my lips
    All the way to my fingertips
    Taste the poison set in
    He seared my body with an unquenchable need
    Left each inch naked, barren and bled out
    Danced it slow on my soul
    Stopped my heart from it's current flow
    Wrecked havoc within the lyrics of my song
    Change of course, abrupt departure
    Detour in a new direction and design
    Will things ever really align
