He Took My Teardrops

 

The light is out tonight
I canít go out tonight
No way I can move off here

 

Wrists are tight bound, I cannot move my arms.
Ankles as well, why did he make it tight?
I try to speak, but tape muffles my words
How can I escapeÖ

 

He tied me up I cannot move
What can I do to raise the roof and get help?
He took my teardrops

 

Made for me of white gold and pearls,
He stole them and went into the night with me here!
He took my teardrops

 

So I turn and face him now
As he heads out of the door
My jewellery in his black bag

 

I twist round, and I still cannot move?
I scream for help, and nobody comes?
I put my head back, and shake in silent rage
And impotence

 

And now
He tied me up I cannot move
What can I do to raise the roof and get help?
He took my teardrops

 

Made for me of white gold and pearls,
He stole them and went into the night with me here!
He took my teardrops

 

My precious teardrops, my lovely teardrops

 

Trussed Like a Chicken

 

Flexing my long fingers, feeling the cool air
Now Iím in real trouble, as I fail to find what I seek
Looking in the mirror, oh Lord is that me?
Eyes wide in terror, who can this person be?

 

If only my husband had been home today
Then I know I would not be

 

Tied like a chicken
Arms forced behind and secured with rope
Stuck fast, ropes around and between
And now I cannot move, and thatís not all

 

Because Iím trussed like a chicken
And he left me here

 

My legs are bent and tied, ankles to thighs
And the rope between my legs is tied to my wrists

 

And with the scarf filling my mouth
And the silver tape round my head
My moans are silencedÖ

 

Tied like a chicken
Arms forced behind and secured with rope
Stuck fast, ropes around and between
And now I cannot move, and thatís not all

 

I throw my head back
I donít want to but my body screams in time

 

Tied like a chicken
Arms forced behind and secured with rope
Stuck fast, ropes around and between
And now I cannot move, and thatís not all

 

So yes Iím trussed like a chicken
But why is it divine?

 

Heroes

 

Oh dear god, who made this mess?
Papers thrown over the floor
Whereís my wife?

 

I can hear someone talking
But it sounds funny and mumbled
Where is she?

 

I walk into the kitchen
And hear those mumbled noises grow louder
There she is
Sitting by the table on a chair
Eyes wide over the scarf filling her mouth

 

I need to be the hero of this time
But Iím fighting with the feelings in my mind

 

They tied her tightly to the chair
Hllpmmm

 

But the ropes kinda make her sexy
Hllpmmm

 

I need to be the hero of the time
Hllpmmm

 

But the way she struggles makes me feel soÖ
HLLPMMM

 

They tied her legs to the front legs
The wood creaks as she moves them
As he calls to me

 

I walk over and ease the scarf out
She takes a breath and whispers thank you
In appreciation

 

She told me they came in that day
Tied her there, robbed us, then went away
Until I came home

 

I smile and kiss her forehead
And then I kiss her lips
And ask if she wants freed

 

I need to be the hero of this time
Thank you


But Iím fighting with the feelings in my mind
Thank you

 

I am the hero!

 

1974

 

My mother told the story
She opened the door
They pushed in
With guns
Made her do what
They said

 

They tied her wrists
Behind her back
Then pulled a thick scarf
Between her lips
Before they pushed her
Into the room

 

She was wearing jeans and high boots
and a blouse over a sweater
They made her lie on the couch
And tied her ankles tight and straight

 

She had to watch them
As they took her stuff
She had no choice
They were in charge

 

She struggled and cried
Muffled screams
As they left her alone
She was scared
But she had no choice
in 1974

 

My father found and freed her
And when the police had been
They made love that night
and a year later, I came

 

The Night So Sweet

 

If one day someone asks about me
Tell them I was left like this
Arms wide, tied to the bedstead
Wearing a silk nightie

 

My lips, visible under the tape
I watch you bind my ankles, to the foot of the bed
And I wonder what you want of me
As I look into your deep blue eyes

 

My dear, make me complete
Please take me now, I want your love
And I want it to be you, only you
The night so sweet will be complete

 

I see your smile, your nod, your love
My trust in you complete
And as you slowly kiss me, move over me
My heart can love for the both of us
