DAMSEL YOU AND PIRATE ME

This was sent to me by a friend who wrote this years ago. It was too good to keep to myself and with her permission, I am posting it here to share with you.

DAMSEL ME AND PIRATE YOU

Not unless you take the wheel

Could you know or could you feel

The boldest man I ever knew...

Damsel me and pirate you

A sailor on his brutal quest

Pillage souls and plunder flesh

A bleeding heart is his tattoo....

Damsel me and pirate you

A journey sweet and glory bound

Smacks of cruel and runs aground

The roughest storm that ever blew....

Damsel me and pirate you

Danger sweeps across the deck

Bruise my arm and bites my neck

Stole my breath and left no clue....

Damsel me and pirate you

Against all odds that I could win

Velvet lips against my skin

Drew your sword and ran me through..

Damsel me and pirate you

Ripped my heart and left me frail

Took my love and then set sail

Abandoned me without a crew...

Damsel me and pirate you

Did you catch me on my knees

Petty thief...oh pretty please

Tell me know what I should do...

Damsel me and pirate you

Forty years later.....

A rakish man who prowls at sea

And boasted his virility

Was once the soul I used to be....

Damsel you and pirate me

Naïve lady in distress

A novice in a sultry dress

Did meet a man of revelry...

Damsel you and pirate me

A lover's dream in silhouette

Stands before me soaking wet

Picked your lock and turned my key

Damsel you and pirate me

A shallow brute who lost his edge

And fell down on his knees instead

When lust became my enemy...

Damsel you and pirate me

Empty words are laid to rest

Pocket of coins and loneliness

Left a hole that you can't see...

Damsel you and pirate me

I can't touch and I can't taste

Or see the moonlight on your face

But I still hold the memory

Damsel you and pirate me

And now behold this mortal man

Whose ghost ship ages in the sand

I close my eyes....and long to see....

Damsel you and pirate me
