Whiskey Lies

Whiskey Lies

Scottish bottles all lined up on the bar,

Behold their amber hue and flavors bazaar.

Smoky and bitter, never chased with a lime,

Liquid libation drank one shot at a time.

It blooms and wakes the not so subtle sound of

Whiskey Lies……and the glint in your eye.

The corner curl of sarcastic grin,

You sample another taste of sin.

Walls tumble down, your armor unhinged,

Let's play with fire and not get singed.

Your hand on my hip, another drink leaves the glass,

Laughter comes quickly, whiskey sure makes you sass.

Caught in the moment, kisses fuel my desire,

My inner voice screams, don't leap from the pan to the fire.

The rush from the closeness, thoughts jumbled and frayed,

Its almost my downfall, a girl could get laid.

In charge of my wits, I see through the haze,

The spark in your eye slowly fading away.

This road I have traveled, every dip, every turn,

A women’s intuition is to never get burned.

So put down that glass, and hand me your keys,

You’ll never remember that "I "was the tease.

"The rush from the closeness, thoughts jumbled and frayed, Its almost my downfall, a girl could get laid." These lines are great! So simple and so true - loved the whole idea of poetry about the amber haze. Really well done!

A poet yes, i seem to have a knack for the rhymie thing. Nice to meet you too, I wrote a really short piece at work today on my lunch hour, had to think of a word that rhymed with "stuck" you can well imagine what i landed on lol. Wonder if Hubpages will let me use that word and how it will get rated? Ha!

;) Thanks for playing along CC

The perils of drink.I have worn a few pair of beerglasses in my time. When the person you wake up with doesn,t resemble the supermodel you went to bed with.

If anyone knows how to get a swear word into a hub its ralwus.
