Deadly Drunken Squeeze by Yessenia Funes

Without a reason,
Without a cause,
These vines, they wrap
Around her heart

They squeeze
Tighter and tighter
Her skin turns red
They pour images
Into her head

At first, she struggles
And puts up a fight
The floral serpent
Fills her with fright

But she walked into
The cave of vines
The place she knows
Where she cannot hide

The ropes seduced her
With their petals
A lush red that spoke
Of endless pleasure

So what to do
But give in?
The vines won't stop
She can't win

Once she quits
Huffing and puffing
The vines pull her
Into a garden full
Of nothing
But sweet loving

Love Lake by Yessenia Funes

Sometimes we let our guard down
To take a sip at the lake
The waters of reds and pinks
Help wash the lonely away

But once the walls have fallen
The taste isn’t very sweet
You prefer the salty ocean
That once made waves at your feet

The love we seek cannot be found
In lakes or rivers or streams
We find it lost at sea
Where our hearts beat
Roaring endlessly

So the walls go up
And our guard stays put
Because we felt a sting
Of the Love Lake that doesn’t exist
The Love Lake of deceit

To Be The Flash by Yessenia Funes

I wonder if I could run so fast that I'd travel through time
I'd choose an era of lust, an era of the divine
A moment when you worshipped me
More than I ever knew
A place in time when you loved me
When my lips were all you knew

I wish I were a speedster
I'd run to you now
I'd race across the country
Through the sweet breasts of the mountains
And the salty taste of the sea

I still see you in my dreams, you know
We're together there
But when I awake, I'm reminded
Of our love that disappeared
I can't escape reality,
No matter how quickly I move my legs

Nobody has touched me like you
Since that last night we stayed in
Making love in a beach-side cabin
Warm and heartbroken

No moving or thrusting
Can echo the sound of the ocean
Laughing at our silly games of love
The sound of you and me, moaning to the stars above

No one has filled that void between my thighs
The heavy breathing and sighs
That lie within me, awaiting you
The low hum of vibrations keep me from begging you
To serve me a sip of water from your fountain
Of memories and tragedies

Maybe it's best I can't run fast
Because a sprint to you just wouldn't last
My heart would fail from the scars of our past
A steady fleeting pumping—

And then I crash
