Sex Me Not... - Poem by Singleton M. Tate

Sex me not, ... with sex don't play,
Within a house that's prone to stray.
At first, it might seem pure and strong,
Who really knows what turns him wrong?

Or was it her from the very start?
The sex she gave was not from heart.
Let's bind forever our souls will tie,
With endless tears and no goodbyes.

Sex me not... we've built a maze,
That leaves us both within a haze.
Emotions run deep, when we both know,
That sex is cheap, Love runs the show!

Inspired by: Mr. J.C.H.

    you got it clinched in these few lines....
    love has become a word hopelessly trapped in the urban dictionary, a victim of linguistic drift....and skewed societal mores....very well done emotively touching write

    Ah, of course, as a man... I was drawn to this poem at first glance... and I was pleasantly surprised upon completion. Your words describe an oh so common situation in a many relationships today. I have experienced this myself. And Your last lines really drive the point home-

    Emotions run deep, when we both know,
    That sex is cheap, Love runs the show!

    Great Ink!
