My Consort of Vice

Served in the U.S. Army, attended and graduated from The University of Texas-Arlington with a bachelors in psychology and minor in sociology


She loves me and hates me,

And spins a web so divine.

And those lips, so intoxicating

Like Dionysus's finest wine.

Her eyes are mesmerizing,

like Medusa’s chilly stare.

When I capture her glance,

I am enthralled, I don’t have a prayer.

Oh how I struggle to break free from her spell.

But like an addict that needs a hit, I’d rather stay in hell.

Once the chains drop free, then I will bid you adieu.

Then I can recover from the fixation of knowing you.

Until then I will be your lover who comes at your beck and call.

I am so easy that you can play with me like your favorite doll.

Such is my life as the nymphs plaything.
