soul mates

This is something which invaded my psyche sometime ago. It`s just lately that it has re-surfaced. Beware of the wolf with the red rose.


He had travelled
the weary mile
his business had taken him
to strange lands


his eyes had seen things
which should have been
better left alone
She had been angry at him
back home


but now
and of late
it didn`t seem
like home
anymore


and then
he met her
she was young
wild and exciting


her lips promised
him everything
for a few
crumpled bills
that`s all it was
and that`s all
it could ever be


the night was
passion
stained sheets
left for
the chambermaid
to wonder


when he awoke
she was gone
but she had left
a message scrawled
on the mirror
in
bright
red
lipstick


Welcome
to
the
Aids
Generation.
