You creep up,
like a snake being charmed.
You move on,
in the heat of the dark.
Desecrate me, breaking what you heal.
Consecrate me, reaping what you steal.
Speak in tongues,
when you come undone.
String me along,
when I slip,
when we fall.
Liberate me, run from what you feel.
Complicate me, question what is real.
Decimate me, hide what you reveal.
Violate my sanity,
all the violent ecstasy I feel.
