You Cannot Provide For Me


Caught between your words
Your meaning bares its teeth
And grimaces triumphantly
“You’ll never get me
You’ll never get close enough to see
Or to feel the things you need
Here in these words
Or this mind
Blinded as you are by lust
And wanting convention”
Yet fascinated by this shadow-show,
I remain transfixed
And grasp its challenge undaunted
Like a fool on a dare
Unaware
How the odds are stacked against me
