What do you want from me?

What is required of me

To bid you farewell?

I try to greet you

Embrace you

As I would a friend

Yet you turn your back

Uncomfortable in my presence

Why do you not face me?

Let me reassure you

That I wish you no harm

Only to release you

From your dark abode

To set you free

To wander content

In new surroundings

For you to see

We have no need of each other


You held me tight

Embracing my loneliness

And casting it adrift

From the shores of reality

The waves of uncertainty

Broke on an unquestioning shore

Your compassionate caress

Rekindled my heart

Sweeping us both

Into the depths of desire
