Well, talk to me like the rain and–let me listen, let me lie here and–listen…It’s been too long a time since we–levelled with each other. Now tell me things. What have you been thinking in the silence? Tell me, talk to me! Talk to me like the rain and I will lie here and listen.
Tennessee Williams, from The Theatre of Tennessee Williams; “Talk to me like the Rain and Let me Listen,”
Now comes the night,
dragging your lips to mine
like a good cat.
Your arms were so far around me
your face so close to mine…
your breath, your lips, everything
you said… was heat in a box.
I wondered what would be left
when you were done with me
and now I know. Now I know…
it is my fate, my destiny to burn.
You will never be done with me
