I hide
I lie
I love
I’ll do anything to make you believe me
Set me on fire.
Retrieve me
From the fires
I start myself.
Save me.
Grace me
With the softness of your smile.
I’m hard when wet.
I’ll laugh and forget
Your name in an instant
But forever remember your smell
Once I’ve tasted it.
Erased it from my mind
As quickly as I remember it
But I vow
To remember you.
More than the dreams that carry you
Into the life I know inside me.
Find me.
I hide.
Listen for my breathing.
