PASSION

Strip me bare and lie me naked,
I am your sole companion.
In this bed of nails we wait
torn between our passion.
Velvet footsteps, carpet floor
make no noise,
leave no trace.
Strip her bare and lie her naked,
she is your sole companion.
Nothing lingers in the dust of hope
all now barely matters.
Run the distance,
feed the mile,
all said leaves naught to say.
Bleed the thoughts that keep you hooked.
There you see the morning light
rise in glory,
lost yourself in pleasure
lost yourself in pain.
Strip him bare and lie him naked,
he is your sole companion.
The life you chose
will serve and keep you safe.
