[Pretty sure this is overwhelmingly unfinished but I’m leaving it as it is—twas very much a “time and place” piece! Definitely imagined as a song in the style of the best angsty teen band out there…]
My fingers trace along your waist
Your sigh says as much as the look on your face
Innocent eyes – the real you
Or just a clever disguise only I see through?
Are playing up for me?
Sultry trying to impress me?
Is this you or what you think I want?
I fell before you felt the need for me to need you.
And I can tell you don’t know just what you’re getting into.
Test me til I snap and I won’t snap back.
Break me to your will and I can’t promise I won’t break you.
Cast your shadow cast your lot
In with me until we rot.
Show your soul I’ll give you mine
That side of you I can’t define
