you're laying on your bed & making shadows on the wall
it's almost too hot to move
outside your window
people are driving home from work for the weekend.
but you're waiting for the phone to ring
you're gonna tell her exactly what you think.
you practice getting your mouth around the words
that explain the way you feel.
you've been scared to show your real self
in case she doesn't like what she sees
you've been a prostitute to humility
she's invaded your life & you've got to
live apart in order to survive
you were emotionally independent
but starved of affection.
but now you've been trapped by tenderness
& been beaten into submission
it's now way past the hour she usually phones
& you've decided not to tell her your little joke
where could she have got to.
why is she torturing you
you roll on your side
& run your fingers through your hair
you're scared of losing her
& facing yourself
a red sky at night may be a shepherd's delight,
but you're cutting chunks from your heart.
& rubbing the meat into your eyes.
she can't leave you now; you've given up all your friends
you're relying on her for your independence
she can't leave you here alone & defenseless
you're relying on her for your independence
you're relying on her.
