Lovers Debate

He pleaded with me to touch his skin

   Encouraged by love and wine

 

While his hands tried their path

   To wander over mine

 

He had long given chase in arguments and debates

   Why we should be lovers

 

Confessions of love and loyalty

   To get me under covers

 

Talk of roses and faded blooms

   And wasting not our lives

 

Was to, I guess cause me to swoon

   And easily give up the fight

 

Do you think it will work on me?

   Using what I write

 

And how our time is fleeting

   And we are all but dust

 

No faster fleeting than is your love

   When completed is your lust

 

If  to win me by debate

   Be sure you are my equal

 

Nothing lower does rate

   Than a poorly redone sequel

 

You might possibly rate higher

   If you tried being kind

 

Little you could do right now

   Would ever change my mind

 

Your new tactic?  To wear me down.

   Possibly exhaust me?

 

In your persistence to lay me down?

   But only sleep will this cost me!

 

He begged me, bade me

   “Please touch my skin”

 

Till at last I begged him

   Please touch me once again
