(Do Not) Fear MeDarling, do not fear me.(Do Not) Fear Me by ~yexy
Let me scale the walls of your distrust
Let me work at the stones
And clear the locks of their rust.
Darling, do not fear me
I could never do you harm
Why, these fists are weak, this tongue is sweet
I want only to lie in your arms!
Darling...darling, do not fear me.
I want only to love you, to know you
I want to laugh with you--
And when upset, console you.
Darling, do not fear me.
I will only touch your heart
I will kiss your rough skin
I will caress your lips in the dark.
Oh darling, do not fear me
For when I tire of your love
I will not say cruel things
I will not yell, nor scream.
Darling. Do not fear me.
I will leave with a smile and a kiss
I'll be gone in the blink of an eye--
Why, there'll hardly be anything to miss!
Darling, you see, you cannot escape
You will love and be loved
and then it will all go away
Though I mean you no harm and I often say,
Darling, do not...
The tree and the reedAnd when your rage is taken, where is your voice?The tree and the reed by ~yexy
When your power is stripped, what is left?
I find it so difficult to be intimidated by you
You, whose bones are the same as my own--
For though you shake me, you cannot break me
And you cannot take what I've known.
If all your pomp is tattered
And you slip from your imaginary throne
If you have no barbed insults to throw
And no gilded credentials to show
Who are you if you stand alone?
So you have more money than I--I see.
So you have at least three degrees.
You have connections and cars and a great big house
You stand as a tall oak tree.
But I am a fire, darling, I am a river
I am the wind and the rain and the sea
I was born of dust and of tears and some old barbed wire
You are a tree, but I am a reed.
Life is liquid, ever changing,
and I bend and I curve with the flow
Never broken, never shattered
Though I waver, still I grow.
