  • You must give way.
    How can you be cold, yet stand at uniform attention?
    I can caress and care
    But with a flick of your wrist
    Or a flick of your hair
    The next step is as the last.

    If I lay beside you
    You know my skin will shiver
    And how outrageous it is
    That you grow gold around the edges
    Working in towards the core
    Where I clutch the Earth fast.
