I could argue
For days
But I don't have the energy
Bathe in your gaze
It is all that is left to me
I am devoured
By your trust and your need for me
Hours and hours
I'm still stunned by your beauty

I am tired
But I'll still stay with you
I shall not abstain
Thought I really ought to

The fragments of paper
That you find on my body
Each and every night
Mean nothing to you:
A foreign language
Of truth and emotion.
Don't you know
About truth
And trust?

I have spoken
Of nothing but myself
I cannot bear to look at you.
Describing you
Makes me remember
The contours
Of your body
And the glint
In your eye
And I am so afraid
To remember.
