The root of it all
Grows under
It twists around in
Warm soil
Pushing through

The eyes are asleep in the waters
The mouth is awaiting the vowels

The flesh heats up once more
In yearning
To poor from wells in stupor
To surrender

My eyes are asleep in the waters
My mouth is awaiting the vowels
My lungs are inhaling a memory
My brain is awaking a motion

What stays hidden
Is not necessarily
Without motion
Or at rest
In the quiet
and unseen
is thinking and shaping
a womb to grow within

I will give myself to you
when I'm able
I will give myself to you
when I'm able

I''ll give myself to you
and I will open up to you
and I will share my pain with you
when able
