As bad a boy as I can be
Their genes and desire
Attract the honeybees
And many I have lit their fire
Love but a purpose
On their tongue
But in full denial of their true thought
Of the lust that is sought
Life has taught me
If nothing else
That while love is sought
With lust it can be bought
At our essence only animals are we
We claim to be above the beasts
How naïve are we
Providing meat for natures feast
We hide our lust in a thing called love
To provide a rationalization
For the beast within us all
But at what I have written I am appalled
For it is not as I had hoped
But what life has taught
That through lust
Love can be bought
Of true love I know naught
I have given myself to no avail
All of myself to another’s wishes
But in the name of love
My heart has felt nails
So now
How to love and trust
It is only in my inner self
That I deeply believe  I must
What is my purpose upon this earth
To be beast for breeding stock
Or to feel that which I have so long sought
Love that lust has not bought

About forsythkid

I am just a simple man with a head full of sand who is currently residing in a small town called Forsyth Missouri. I enjoy hiking, camping and all things related to gardening. I rec’d my degree from SIU majoring in Biology many moons ago and still maintain a great interest in the study of all living things. My hobbies include meteorology, the Finnish language and inhabiting cyberspace whenever possible.
