Failed Test

I told you in the beginning
All the secrets to having me
The things that would keep me close
The things that would make me not leave
You said those other guys
Were stupid for not appreciating me
And that you would treat me better
And be all that I need
I love hard, so I gave you my all
I try hard, so I did my best
But you failed on so many levels
And could not past the final test
So I'm gone and you are sad
You know that he said the same things to me
He said that you were a fool for not trying
And you know he's right, that's why you lost me

Until Dessert Comes

The appetizers have not yet arrived
But I have
Over and over again
Before the waiter even brought out our drinks
I can't stand you
Because you say we can't leave
Not until dessert comes
He comes over with glasses of ice water
I take out a cube and begin to suck on it
And your hand is still there, under my jacket and up under my dress
Fingers stroking my cherry,
but not fast enough
Because he is there taking our order
And you calmly talk to him, asking me questions that I can't even decipher
about what I would like
As if you don't know
I give you the look
Chuckling at the waiter
Because my behavior humors you
You say something clever to the waiter
And you order for me
And continue to torture me all the while
I beg you to stop
whispering to you so no one can hear
But you won't
You whisper back that you won't stop
Until dessert comes
I cover my mouth
Suffocating screams before they escape
And you won't stop
Until dessert comes
But I can't wait for the waiter
I can't wait for our meal
You see,Whip cream escapes and my cherry has burst
And now I'm not in the mood for dinner
But you say we'll stay anyway
And will not leave
Until dessert comes
