can you see
what i mean
when i say


in the grey time before evening
i think of you

and there isn't wondering- none-
if you're thinking of me
because i know you're not- not thinking of me

(not the way
i want you to,
the way i dream of you
in my arms
lying in the shadows of red curtains
skin against skin,
locked as we should be)

because you don't see-
can't, and i don't
really want you to-

i like the shadows here. keep
away, don't

(pierce, penetrate, come here, come in, i welcome, i want, i dream)
