Speak in tongues and no one sees
Lies and misconceptions weaved
Wave your arms, a stunning dance
That sultry look and upward glance

Your beauty hammer-fists bestow
Your wanton lust the strong kowtows
Beguile, denude, bend to your will
Ever pressure, till breast stands still

A tearing, searing, screaming howl
Cannot pass your defensive cowl
You shield that inner sensitive soul
With welded links and practiced role

Come a day, when chinks appear
When guards are dropped and thoughts unclear
A brilliant light becomes a sword
And songs once sung peel final chords

    god…i see me in this entire thing, i mean, at least the way im understanding it. im vicious though sometimes, i know i am. and i always keep my “inner sensitive soul” shielded with “welded links and practiced role.” ive gotten quite good at it, now that its been about 4 or 5 years since i’ve been in this scene. i especially like the ending though “And songs once sung peel final chords.” Gorgeous as always Mark, but I don’t have to tell you that ;)
