You Became The Man

I was stunned by how desperate your love-making was

My eyes remained dilated

Even as the sun revealed everything I ever forgot

But now we have a problem
I can see right through you
You showed me too much
Can we do it again?
I just want to be sure

Because things just don’t seem the same
You blew my mind out in a way that I never contemplated

It wasn’t pornographic
Because I know what that's about
I just don’t get how kind you are with children
And my mother

But you aroused yourself to such a frenzy
That in your haste you became me and I became you

You attacked
All inhibition was drowned in a pool on the sheets
You played to a camera that wasn’t there
You destroyed all past lovers
And any chance that you could ever be truly honest with any man

Except me
But I get the feeling you’re not too worried about that
