You dance across the eyes like a slithering snake

You sway on my mind like a whisper on the nape

You prance the heart wearing a dark black cape

What is it that you wish to convey, as you shift shape?


It’s you I wish to hold with your story untold

It’s your crux so bold, that I’m lost in the fold

It’s you, who binds my mold, with threads as fine as gold

But, I could never get a grip of the truth you wanted unfold


With the fire burning, the passion you ignite

With the fiery red glow, you’re quite a sight

With the rings of smoke that surround your might

I can never feel your unspoken plight


A thousand fires burst as the clock unwinds

The flames rise and fall and put me in a bind

Their grip so fierce, but their beauty so kind

Like manna from the heaven you burn my mind


Now I know what you truly mean

Without this truth what a void I had been

Like the throes of birth, you have wiped me clean

My mind’s on fire now, as I wake from my dream.
