Sonnet 56: Lounge Singer

Come home, baby, come back again.
You’ve been gone too long;
It’s a world of pain you put me in.
Please bring back your song!

You’re so sweet, you’re my appetite.
Fly back tonight and sing.
Just a nibble, honey, to get us going.
A bite from you’s the thing!

Give me a little then give me more,
Eat me with your hungry eyes.
Close them when you’ve had enough
You’re my heart and my surprise.

Let’s have a party, tonight no dullness
Love’s the ocean in which we’ll drown.
Come on, let’s put our hearts together.
Love’s a fool and I’m its clown.

Bring it back! Shake it down south.
Burn away my winter weather.
If you don’t care, I don’t either.
Let it fall, light as a feather,
Yes, let it fall, light as a feather.
