the good cat

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.

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
