My Baby Blue

Tonight I had to say goodbye to you
I cried as I held you, my baby Blue
Nine long years you shared our life
Through happiness and times of strife

I remember when we adopted you
You kissed my hand my baby Blue
We took you with us to share our home
From our lives you didn’t roam

You rarely spoke except to growl
At enemies upon the prowl
Yet you’d befriend the smallest kind
Rabbits, squirrels you didn’t mind

You shared your food with the birds that came
And shared your water just the same
You’d walk with me on summer days
And smiled at me for the slightest praise

You hated water that’s a fact
To a hose or a tub you would over react
But to a brush you would sit so still
A scratch on the belly gave you such a thrill

But old man the time had come
The tears have flowed until I’m numb
I said goodbye to our friendship true
I’ll miss you always, my baby Blue.

Obsessive Inclination

You are an addiction
A drug to my heart
Poison to my soul
The forbidden edge

Craving your touch
Unable to erase your image
Hearing your voice in my sleep
Aroused to a pitch, soaked in sweat

You have another; I have mine
Wanting too much; taking too little
Dancing around the chemistry
Refusing the forbidden fruit

Leave my soul intact
My heart untainted
I cannot survive the high
The crash will cost too much
