Chocolate laugh, severe dark eyes
Pretty words, but no protocol
Lust looming, captured by surprise

Flickering dim dreams, savoring you
Dancing in me, new sensuality
Draped in purple, clouded, shrouded view

Gentle fingertips, rough to the touch
Molasses manner, so very slick
Psychosis, a place where nothing much

Matters, except this strange fantasy
Hot knife, melts in me like butter
Injects pain, takes pleasures from me

Musical notes, tinkling in my brain
Which persona will it be today?
Warm man/frosty man, never sane

Run, my instincts say: flee while you can
Damn this body, betrayal so foul
Sensing a change, he soars and spans

The distance, a steel bridge suspended
Frozen are my feet, I stare down and
Down, mesmerized by a life ended

Stronger than he, I begin to laugh
Laugh hard and long until he fades
Like smoke. I choose another path

A sunnier place where God lives
And surrender myself, purity
Leaving behind the gift that gives

And gives.

May 1999 Corinne Bailey
