Thimister

Wind playing with fire
Lifting the skirts of the flames
Not a shameless desire
Just a pyromaniac game
Waving silhouettes
Belly dancing in the dark
To the sound of castanets
From the crackling ember sparks
All the times I ceased to breathe
Just to be sure you were alive
Alll the times you feigned to weep
Just to see if I would die
Carmine flapping drapes
The murmurs and the gusts
A ring of luscious shapes
The sulfur and the lust
Mercury hot and quick
A boiling bladder of wine
Blood sappy and thick
Matches and turpentine

All the times I ceased to breathe
Just to be sure you were alive
Alll the times you feigned to weep
Just to see if I would die
And with my headphones on
You’re a dragon blowing glass 
On my steamy window pane

And with my headphones on
You’re a ghost without a mask
And your bones are made of rain

All the times I ceased to breathe
Just to be sure you were alive
Alll the times you feigned to weep
Just to see if I would cry
