You’ve Got Me

You’ve got me
By a string
Moving
In all that is sad and beautiful
There is
No form, no color on our skins
Only echoes of voices
Promises and whispers
Shivers and scattered breaths
You give me your arms
Like you give me all of you
With tenderness
You break in front of me
Slowly, like a lost child
Unfolding the layers
In your eyes
Sometimes there is a void
A well that swallows me up
There is darkness
Something wild
In your eyes
Lies and excuses
The need to justify
Sometimes you take me
As if you were drowning in pain
As if I was your ship
And you take all of me
Selfishly
You’ve got me
You’ve got me
