My body needs a hero

Nora Jones

Written 12-13-2012

Kept under lock and Key
Faithfully sleeps a part of me
Tucked away in endless night
Safe and secure, away from the light

Beware - that which lies dormant should not be disturbed.
There are risks to be careful of, these words should be heard.

The comfort you brought revealed its location
Your unique way of being awarded you the key
Your caress turned the key releasing the treasure within
Desires and passion and things that consume me
They all burst thru the doors where they slumbered
In a storm of light, wind, sound, and sensation they overthrew me

You provided so much for them to feed on
releasing them from some of their restraints
Their release felt like it freed me
as we melted into you with no complaints
Drinking in all that you had to offer
Stuffing themselves with delight
Still weakened from their slumber
Their energy didn't last the night
Together you had emptied me, stripped me of all my strength
My body could only tremble after all the passion and energy was spent
After using all of their forces back to sleep they calmly went
But their cell still remains open and the key may have been bent

To feed them is a danger, to strengthen them a risk
I should have said 'be careful' before you opened this
For once they are awakened and they break thru all their chains
Their appetite will only grow without any restraint
They are reckless and relentless, they will run thru me and you
They can leave us both in ruins & exhaustion before they are thru
They can seek you out and drain you if you give them another taste
And I will not have the power to keep control in place

It will seem like a perfect challenge until you have nothing left
Think about it carefully before accepting such a gift...

      Chin to the floor... Frank, your compliments are always so unique and greatly appreciated. Very flattering. I'm always wondering what the reader sees when I'm being read. Do they see what I see?

      I want to draw in, I just don't know if I am doing it...

      I love a visit from the MHatter... I believe that you understood perfectly and am happy that you had the opportunity to soar. The masses wont get too because I feel that the new trends have cheapened it.
