In One Lifetime

Tell me
what's your secret
that lets you destroy without a word
tell me now
I don't think that it's too much to ask of you
in one lifetime
your long slender fingers
and your solitary face
revolve around the madness in your eyes
would a minute of your time
be too much to ask of you
in one lifetime?
even in your photograph
you will not look my way
well that's okay -
it'll make a lovely poem
I guess a smile from your lips
would be too much
to ask of you
in one lifetime
