One brief moment, a single thread of intimacy
Impermanence but even so,
I saw some semblance of you...the real you
The innermost core as you break your own rule
Never to reveal
Does it ever get exhausting to hide behind a facade?
For the amusement and qualm of others
I hope you can accept that I will alwyays know with the innermost part of me
The semblance of you
And treasure the fleeting memory
It was one smile, one hug, one touch
We only get one shot to breathe in today's quake
Fear chokes you off like dried roses; Must it rob you of yourself so easily?
Oh how you love your puppet strings and torments
Lord lacerates and Maid Marionettes
But the semblance of you will linger; like a name it will be the only memory
Of absolute truth if there is one
I know that you are more that what you give, more than your kindness, more than your doubt
Your fear and beauty for a brief instant were in my hands, my eyes, my heart
Too blinding, not enough for me and too much for you, yet think on me
Will I be the only one to deliver you? Will this breath be your last?
Take it true if it will be the last of your humanity, frailty, vulnerability
But to keep you sane, know you were truly loved
