Barricades


The bricks of my structure gape at the touch,
A sigh from my lips crawls toward your collarbones

I want to blend in the yellows
Look at you,
The sunshine dancing in your eyes;
Burning to consume me

I evaporate into your arms
Like a meaningless song finally writing its poetry-
You say some words,
You speak in all the world's hidden in my mouth

Come, live with me
(Kiss me)

Shake the barricades before the wolves tear them apart.
