Her passion was too much.
Now it’s gone.
She condemned, deplored all abuse.
She praised the thrill of touch.
We’ll bear on.
The jealous piled on, no excuse.
Her life was filled with hurt.
or because of it, she performed
as an erotic flirt.
she homered passion unreformed.
Some men became aroused,
to live within her fantasies,
and when requests were doused
time was spent
in fighting her apostasies.
