HOWLING AT THE MOON LIKE A SLACK-JAWED FOOL

               I
         sing
     my songs
    to you.
    My words
      like butter,
             melt in your
                                         
mo-
                                          uth and their
                                                taste leaves you
                                         sweetened and satisfied. I’ve
                                                tried to serenade
                                                         you in every
                                                             possible way
                                                          except what could
                                                       eventually reach your ears.
                                                     My aural invasion bringing thoughts
                                                 to you that you never knew were possible.
                                            An im-  passible blockade, battered now to allow my
                                         melo-   dies           direct access to your battle-worn heart.         And
                                     my w     ords,        dripping, honeyed, spoon-fed, sticking to         your
                                  ravag    ed soul.       They’ve taken a toll as the maddening moonlight
                             entices    my mu-                se. I bay at its brilliance; my dalliance
                        brought     to bare                          under the star-filled night.
                                                                        Only fools fall!
