The Dragon

killing me softly
Killing me softly
Roberta Flack
sang
so perfectly
In a lilting tone
Killing me softly
with her song

Strumming my pain
Your narrow blue eyes
a brash attitude
hides
a tender soul
a man in need of love
living in an ice box
of pain
You built up the barrier
so long ago
You forgot the instructions
for tearing it down

I was looking for the code
it must be written in Japanese
for I am perplexed
puzzling
passionate
purple
fever rising inside of me
I know you
I could open you
if only you'd let me

I am no codebreaker
I am only a woman
Eve
that which you rejected
long before I met you
My apple does not poison
It is
Fruit
Wholesome
designed to satisfy
not to isolate
MAN
from himself

My dragon
you do not need
breathe
fire upon me
burn me as you have been burned
to make me like you
I am like you, yet I am the other

The foreign, the isolate
the unexplored territory
how can you explore Her
when you have not yet
plundered yourself

Pandora made a box alright
it may contain some
JAWS
of life

Your darkness cloaks you
from the Mystery
I pray you
see the light

Maybe it will not help you
live
but
just maybe
it will keep me from death
