Did you hear me say ‘I love you’ last night?
when I left the kiss of it on your skin
and curled my hands into claws oh so tight
wondered who led who, into all this sin.
Wondered if sin was what we’re really in
then lost the edge of my thought on your lips
found it again in the dips of your hips,
tried to tell you, that you were everything
the only one I trust when this mask slips
a lover, a partner, my rock, my life spring.
