You pushed too far
Your tendrils curled around my thighs, slinking
Wrapped around my hips, gripping
Caressed my waist, prodding
Slithered to my lips while slipping down my throat searching for a story that I wasn’t ready to tell
You saw colours inside me and wanted them for your own, shimmery and folding into each other, if you couldn’t touch them, bring them forth, then how could you ever know me?
And if I didn’t let you, how could I ever know you?
These tentacles bind us, slide between us, as words unspoken, but they pulled us so close together I can’t see you as you are
I see you as I want to see you:
Rapt eyes searching my face and losing their own identity in my dark eyes
Nose unknowingly recognizing the scent of my skin,
familiar to you but not since before you were born,
our pairing made before either of us knew we’d be stuck in these mundane bodies
How can two souls ever connect with all this weighing flesh in the way?
Mouth mumbling against my neck, I can’t hear what you’re saying but I know it’s something you wouldn’t dare have me hear anyway
Willingly pulling my colours forth,
(I need to know you)
I erupt in rhapsody,
an envy of the heavens,
and suddenly you’re unsure of your own survival
I tried to warn you before:
I’m taking you with me
