at night i paint you black

at night i paint you black

so no one can find you

but me

i will distinguish the beat of your heart

amidst the sounds that litter the city streets

i do not want to hold you back

i just want to hold you

it is my secret and your sound

my visions and your voice

they cannot see inside

where your blood flows like mercury

and your mind is racing to keep up with itself

the heat

the sparks

the light

you are a feather

you are a gun
