Think before you speak
Before you speak words of loveliness
With flowers in your mouth
For I do not know my own strength
And will turn loveliness into loneliness
With hazardous loyalty

Excruciating is the pain of being needed so
And that’s all I can give
Like a dagger to the heart,
A hammer to the head,
A mama spider eight legs and all
Waiting for the chance to encage you
With my threads

And

To tell you that I love you
That I wish you would stay
Since that is the way the lioness feasts on her prey
Or rather seemingly so,
To a man who is afraid to fall

So

Think before you speak
Before you speak words of loveliness
With flowers in your mouth
