All I said to her was...
"Oh okay, I understand, I'll stay away"
Why do these words haunt me this way,
Nightmares where these words are all I'm allowed to say,
Endlessly falling into unknown constellations all night and all day...
Seems the darkness finally got the courage to attack my weakness this way
She's written under my skin like tattoos, who knew my poetry would betray,
Normally I'd compartmentalize, but I forgot how, to my dismay...
Dreams of a speaking wolf telling me there was nothing I could say,
Funny hearing comforting words from an animal of prey,
I smile because I love her, but I understand so I stay away,
To repeat the process another day,
