Him Without I

How did I deserve

To be given the warmth of the sun

And it's merciless fire

All by the same person


Why did I ask 

For someone who can breath wind into my soul

And suck it out of my life

All in one sentence


Where did I accept

To be filled with the joyous peace of the green Earth

And the terror of tremors

All with one look


What did I do

To gain the warm foam of the sea

And the violent crashing waves

All within one touch


When did I know

That I can evoke that same feeling inside his soul

That I am his fire and his rain

All in one small body


You cannot have fire

Without rain

And you cannot have peace

Without war

You cannot have him

Without I
