I'd Like A Taste  (The Wolf Said)


**********************************************

He said
Oh how
I'd like a taste
of your soul
just a tiny little hole...

Would you mind
very much?

Are you worth my asking...
up to my standard of tasking...
I'd like to borrow a bite of your face.
Call you my beautiful.

Would you mind very much
if I didn't asked but I touched
and maybe bruised your neck a bit?


And that heaving chest beneath the rest
how it suits me to a tee.
Do you mind if I stare
and wander over you everywhere...
like you were my purchased property?

If I spoke the right words
made them potent sweet verbs
will I get all that I want
I'd be so happy to be amused.

You shouldn't mind how your looks
agitate me
and how I'd loosen your collar
with a wink, you'd agree?

The charms that you dangle
I hope your arms to untangle
and wrap them tightly around me.

Do you mind if I borrow your face
and claim your beauty all for me?
I admire your reticence and grace
I'd kiss your innocence and
build a castle from your blushing naivete.

You'd be improved by my intentions
you need my attentions
put away all apprehension
the wolf is at bay.

Remember that day we met in the woods
how I recovered your favorite red hood
I revealed my hunger
but I let you get away?

And my lady I've found you
your Grandmother's gone
I've let out her cottage
enter my darling
I'd like you to stay.
