Like a warm summer breeze, I cool your hot skin
I refresh you, revive you and draw myself in.
I cloak you and heal you and whisper your name
Breathing and sighing, and playing your game.
You seem unaware of my change of direction
As the air becomes colder you seek my protection.
You try to take shelter but I’m far too persuasive
You feel my storm building, and the wind is abrasive.
It’s too late to run; the hurricane’s found you
You try to stay up while tornados surround you.
I want you to realize I’m all that you needed
And without me beside you, you’re alone and depleted.
Battered and bleeding I flail at your skin
I’ve beaten you down, so you know that I’ll win.
Like the air that surrounds you, I’ll go on forever
Tearing away at your happiness for pleasure.
