VAIN I AM by
Vain, I am shallow and selfish, against my own will.
Fooling myself, I deny my own instincts in matters of love and lust, who knows the difference even.
My vanity won’t allow me to love absent of lust, for it is lust that I love most.
Swimming in ecstasy my lover and I, we drain ourselves, panting and loathing beneath my private abode. Then…as time drags on I become weary as my lust fade…so does my love and my vanity won’t allow me to remain.
So, anew I seek. Spreading my net wide to capture another lover.
How can I be satisfied?
As distance grows between my former I think of she from time to time but my memories are filled with lust.
My vanity once again awakens my lustful intent…If only I can capture that moment again. I wonder.
But I dare not attempt. I have already scorned and torn her. Now she lays new ground finally thankful to receive some peace in my welcomed absence…
