Sanctuary

Here I welcome you to my Sanctuary.

The only issue's that I cannot leave.

I have safety nets for my dragonflies -

When they fall easier to categorise.

And my nightingales, well, 

They guard the door

(In case I forget to sing what with you being here)

Being here, in the house I made

But not being there to hear the sounds of your own motorcades.

But didn't we give up our time?

 

As I beckon you through the falling leaves,

I am spun up and sewn in my tapestry

And unravelling as you step inside

I will watch from the walls with my woven eyes.

Believing the threads you have left - 

Perhaps they can sit in a jar on my shelf?

Because you being here is much more for me than it is for you 

For you

For you

But didn't we give up our time?

And maybe one day we'll return.

vampires

You with all the answers.

You with all your disregard.

You build your fence around us

Secure us with coils of barbed wire.

We're seeds to feed the vampires

And spite your sense of urgency

You gently, softly, choose me

And spare all my friends and my family.

And you 

And you 

And you

Bomb down to the middle of me

Down through my mouth and into my heart

Down to the pit of my stomach.

To arm and to defend us,

To microchip and en-snake-ise,

To push

To press 

To bend us

To offer us eternal boots and lies

To complicate our senses

And fold our days between your nights

To call us morning but you

Always leave before it gets light.

And you 

And you 

And you

Bomb down to the middle of me

Down through my mouth and into my heart

Down to the pit of my stomach.

Tindream

Pretty pretty thing, she's the most pretty thing that's ever looked at you.

Funny, warm and smart - she leaves the men to catch their breath before congratulating you.

Eyes that bore into you

A smile that melts you into

However she wants she's

Got you where she wants she

Wants but never needs she

Knows what she could be she

Needs a heart to make her real.

Pretty pretty thing, she's the paradigm of everything you ought to love

And why shouldn't you? 

When she makes you feel like you're the only boy in the room?

But duty bound you feel the

Need to plug the holes she

Oozes sex appeal from

Blind the eyes of those who

Want to steal her from you

And hope that she won't leave but

She needs a heart to make her real.

I am not involved

With the race you started with yourself

Or who you love.

I am not ashamed that I never asked you for anything

Except your love.

Never did not call you

Never fucked around I

Never lied to you I

Never locked you out I

Never shut you in I

Just never was that girl

But she'll need a heart to make her real.

Shh I can hear you

It's just what I feared, you

Are open but full

I am empty but fool

And you

Are planting this tree,

Seed by seed,

Growing small to big wildly

And foolish me

follows you

And it forests me

When I follow you

Oh, it covers me

And I have good intentions with you

I have excellent intentions with you

Which I carry round with me

Whether I wanted to 

Or did not want to.

Shhh, can we stop

For a moment

And clock all hours of wanting

And wishing 

And wasting this

And turn back around to be front facing

Towards and

Touching and

Reaching out

Reaching in

And you'll woman me

And I'll hero you

And you'll woman me

And I have good intentions with you

I have excellent intentions with you

Which I carry round with me

Whether I wanted to 

Or did not want to

But ssh I can feel we are creeping

At snail's pace

But my heart is running 

And tripping up

Needlessly

And my head it tugging its lead

Trying terribly

In vain

To reign it back in

But you look at me

And I look at you

And you look at me

And I have good intentions with you

I have excellent intentions with you

Which I carry round with me

Whether I wanted to 

Or did not want to
