one night

a boy entered my head

a boy i'd never met before

black eyes like tainted pearls

nestled at the bottom of the sea

tanned arms all strong and delicious

teeth ready to devour me

he was so taunting

this boy

he was just plain awful

his face was shapeless

his face shifted in the shadows

everything about him said,

'beg,'

'i want you to beg'

so i will

please?

my prince

take me away from this place

i've been a good girl

a really, really good girl

so just let me go with you

i remember a tongue

on my face

gliding on my shoulder

lips pressed hard

greedy

and he said,

'babe,'

and never stopped

daddy, mommy,

don't be mad

i've been a good girl

a really, really good girl

this boy just won't stop haunting my mind

and he said,

'babe,'

and never stopped

and he just laughed

and never stopped

his laughter twinkled

he wanted me to beg

please?

my prince

take me away from this place

ride away in to the night

please?
