You are the essence
Of my existence
The heart of my being

Yet something is missing

You offered me romance
From the beginning of our dance
A tango without coercion

Yet my soul recognizes the teasing

You fed me fruit
And even the root
From the tree of love

Yet what are my senses seeing

Are you for me?
Am I for you?
Why won’t you leave me?
Why can’t I forget you?

Who is lying to whom
Encased in this tomb
Must break free.

Yet she isn’t fleeing

Go away
Please - don’t stay
I will ruin you.
