To break your silence with a spoon
To cut your voice with my words
To touch your flame with my tongue
Is to break you.

Say a word and time will fall,
Translate my gestures
In a broken language
Or build a shelter, and
Be my home
And I will make you.

Let the fire withdraw
Like waves from your eyes
Beyond this empty shore
The tides rise and fall, like
Words lost inside words.
Let me gather all your scattered shells
And I will take you.

This sucks. You could really use a class or two of Fundamental English.
