I stay restless, 

As a careless whisper 

Shivering up your spine 

Leaving warm footprints 

Eager to light you up.

But I’m afraid to be

An anchor on 

The rocky ocean floor 

Sit still and 

Let my light

Be a steady beam

And travel on 

A steered Bullet 

To your heart.

I must tremble 

As a racy heart does,

Because the life

Nesting deep inside me

Away from the bloodsucking 

Thorns of the world 

Cannot wait to

Burst into you,

And flow freely 

As the night flows into the day

And the day into the night 

Without end.
