Her breath was quint.
Like all her romances
She was neither too early
Nor too late.
Black satin disguised rapture,
Leather hid desire.
Lace held her secrets
And silk beckoned fire.
On the balls of her feet
She stood transfixed.
The man in the shadows,
So handsome, a beauty
Tinged in pure mocha,
And she bet just as rich!
Lust burned deep in those eyes
And bared deep in the grin.
His silhouette, in the darkened alley
Oozed with sex,
With strength and masculine confidence.
Well, that was
Up until that ebony keyed
Ivory piano fell
From five flights out the window
Onto the poor man's head.

Presents under it in piles of one, two, three.
Mommy is on the phone with tears in her eyes,
Daddy is sitting in the living room and all I can hear is cries.
All I am doing is sitting there,
Cuddling my giant bear,
Wondering what could have happened,
That made mommy and daddy be saddened.
Then I wonder when brother is coming home,
School is almost over, he should be knocking down the gnome.
But that was the day he never came back,
And that's when my world went black.
That year on Christmas morning,
All of my family came together in mourning.
