O take my sexy away~by Melvina Germain


 

My Poetry Rant (Don’t pay much attention to this poem, it happens sometimes at 5 o’clock in the morning when I’m in pain. This is what you get when I can’t sleep lol…..

 

O take my sexy away

O take my sexy away
give me an old folks gloom
don’t spare me a day
let the pain and aches zoom
everyday something new
when headaches subside
and toothaches go away
when sleep can’t be found
you’re tired all day
your face wears the frown
of an old maid in distress
you lost your happy
while bathing in stress
O take my sexy away
give me wrinkles and folds
and tell me it’s ok
well I don’t know
what you’re talking about
I’m looking at my big toe
with a flare-up of gout
I can’t walk
my shoes don’t fit anymore
I’m afraid to be seen
outside of my door
O take my sexy away
I’m tossing and turning
and sleep is no friend
my body is burning
I don’t have to pretend
if this is my wrath
tell me what did I do
all through the years
did I offend you
I apologize
to the earth and the sky
please turn the tables around
if not tell me why
I’ve been good all through the years
now I’m bathing in tears
Well there’s no fool
like and old fool
I think I’ve been had
I believed that old story
choose good over bad
