You give me salamanders
The crawly-wally kind,
moving around on my insides.
Their different colors, with licky tongues,
sticky toes, and twirly tails.

You give me salamanders,
Where others get butterflies with pretty fragile wings,
I get one of the slimest, creepy crawl things.
My favorite.

You give me salamanders...
But I want to give you some too.
That feeling when you have them,
like the whole world is new.
So close, yet so far away.
The pain inside seems here to stay.
In you, I do not expect a cure.
But with you, there is no fear.
So many words, that I've got to say.
Caught up in counting all the letters today.
So many reasons that I've got to give to you;
thought about it and I still don't know what to do.
So many steps I'm running to you.
Missed the farewell, I wish you only knew
You shake your rattle, but don't hiss or moan.
Just show those waiting fangs and eyes,
Those things that plunge right to my soul.

So sleek, yet muscular.
The light bends with each subtle move.
Wound up like a hurricane.
The storm is coming soon.

I step forward,
just to hear and see you shake some more.
Your venom drips. Pools on the floor.
I bow to suck it up,
You strike and give-me-more.

Wrap up around me.
Give me more.
Feed upon me.
Now I am more.
In the labor of making a ghost;
A time capsule never found.
No direction from which it came.
An echo from no sound.
