Dreams and Dust

Lying here half-naked
dreaming of you
Skin full to bursting
only hills to view
My body is cream
inch to inch
Ready to pounce
ready to pinch
And you have tasted
these devil fruits
You have decided
but won’t live the truth
You gave yourself to another
untrusting soul
And I belong to no one
untrusting soul
For you have never been as brave
as you hoped to be
And I have never been the fool
that I would need to be
I’d rather be aching
than give up the fight
You’d rather keep dreaming
than open your eyes
Your heart is not as brave as mine
and my love is not as deep
You know I won’t spare the time
to breathe the dust that makes you sleep
My body lies waiting
night after night
For the man who keeps making
another woman his wife
