strangers arms

stranger’s arms

are like an unknown love

unsure that you yet

dislike the other

before the mirror shatters

and the flaws slant

your smiles

to rain over once warmth

a contented slumber

before familiarity

disfigures your

handsome face

before i attach my limbs

only to be slain

before i trust in lips

that only lie

before howls turn

from pleasure to pain

take my hand now

as we drift
