“You sure u wanna do this?”
His whisper breaks the beat
“I’m just passing here, you see,
I’m just passing here…”
Butterflies and spiders shouldn’t mix
But his Noami Campbell eyes see through me
My bitten lip, my dilated pupils
I’m a perfect prey, a stupid prey
Laying myself in his web
Fainting under his breath
It’s too late.
So he takes me home
Fills my spirit with Lisbon at dawn
Soothes my nerves with Vanilla Sky walk
Excuse me, Sir, which way to Martim Moniz Square?
Who cares, this desire burns holes in my common sense
He brushes my hand off his chest made of stone
“Why are you touching me like this?
I’m dangerous, don’t you know?”
“No, you’re good, I can see your soul.”
“You know nothing, John Snow.”
He keeps on playing his spider-mind games
I liquify under his teeth on my neck
If that’s how it feels to be eaten alive
Go ahead, babe, have another bite.
Maybe I could be your Polish princess
Glide in endless dance through the rooms of our castle
Kiss your tired forehead after a battle
Maybe you could be my Angolan prince
Krav Maga knight, soldier of my heart
Fighting demons, putting monsters to sleep…
Or you could be a monster, indeed
I’ll take the risk, just kiss me there
My butterfly flutters in your sticky web
Am I drowning again?
“Breathe,” he says, “Don’t you die now
I need you for later… I need you for life.”
His sweet venom poisons my mind
I don’t want to believe, leave me alone
But he keeps on entering my body and soul
Wraps my anxious thoughts in silk stronger than steel
“Don’t think too much, just feel.”
And so I give Yin, my walls crumble down
His sweet energy swirls up my spine
Feeds my brain with delicious Yang
We’re a Tantric knot of passion and joy
There’s no way back from this, you know?
Star-crossed lovers in the times of a WhatsApp call
Let’s not sleep tonight, tomorrow I’ll be gone
Six thousand kilometers away, I wish I could stay.
“You sure you wanna do this?”
His whisper breaks my fear
I brush my wings against his reckless lips
He locks his arms around my longing heart
Crazy boy, you don’t even know the trouble you’ve got
I will love you across the ocean and time
Pollinate your mind with my poetry and smile
Tattoo your body with my tongue, “mine, mine, MINE”
Get you addicted to my nectar, get you hooked
Get you obsessed, with no cure
So think twice before you ask me that.
