Between Your Teeth

Those lies lying between your teeth
Lingering among our feet
Like the desperation you seek
Hopeless in the street
At what hour does forgiveness greet
Do our eyes meet?

Tell me the art of affection
Written any direction
A lethal injection
I need your objection
A bridge for connection
A poor life in question

Answer truth do not befool
Life is cruel
So bend a rule
Love this jewel
Keep hands cool
Reserve your fuel

Under trust a sleeping serpent
Midnight hermit
Mourning servant
Lessons learn it
Longing urgent
Fever current

If only I were between your teeth / beneath your feet / instead of those lies
