My Turn

I have a tendency to chew before I spit, but you’re a delicacy my dear,

A charm, burning and enticing to my flippant nature, can I distract you from the small print, and you, accidental target, will become a fox in the street lights whilst I subtly mention my twofold path; I’ll lead you off the track if I can borrow your coat, a delightful promise perhaps, I’ll show you some of mine, love, if you give me yours,

And you’ll think it was your idea.

I have a tendency to wrap myself around little fingers, and yours is compelling my dear,

You’re proving a challenge, but I’m not one to cling to the monotonous, consider yourself a raised bar, and take comfort in that when you’re in pieces, I’ll try not to be too cruel in my chroma key green skin, and be who you need me to be; whilst picking out the frailty in the dusk. My thoughts are dancing around the edges of those that seem evident to you, and you, my dear, feel that I am the fooled.

It’s unfair to use this veener on you, you master of trickery, you slight of hand pro, you feel you are one step ahead, and I like that, it keeps you distracted.

Oh dear, my little exploit,

You think this is your game.

…and I like that.
