In the twinkle of the fantasy that I allow to penetrate my mind Or should I say that forces itself into my dreams I see flowing scarves and sheer gowns of overwhelming allure
In your mind you wonder when I will see the kindness in your heart Instead of the face that you must use to gain my attention For you know that even as beauty fades your heart will remain pure
But will I ever move away from the animal instinct that controls my needs For a beauty who arrests my unholy gaze and swallows the key to my lust Will provide the test that I try to avoid but that I must somehow endure
You struggle with the thought of attracting a mate through superficial means Knowing that kindness is not passion and empathy is not lust Yet you comb your hair as you sigh wondering if only flesh keeps you secure
I know you hate this about me but I can only think of the nights we will spend together There is something about conquering an angel that only another man can understand But in the coming dawn will it be you or the skies in which I flew that I will remember?
You have already determined that no matter your gentle smile a man will hurt you For this you built a castle and filled the moat full of eyes which will not look my way And still I will swim in icy waters for what I bring is not doubt but instead what is sure
