Overtime Angel

Can you taste your juices on my tongue?
Like that violent candle lick up the walls
My sweat covers you and fills the small paneled room
And while the simplest nuance between us
Causes the heart inside of me to twist dangerously
Your moist breath fills my mouth
While your tongue explores that familiar place

The soft green glow from the digital clock
Is the only light we ever need when we are alone together
I can see your face and my sweat knows where to land
My body stiffens and you know what is happening
You know where it is all going – you know when it will get there
I will stay inside of you for as long as you let me
Because inside of you is where I belong

And now you sleep the sleep of an overtime angel
Soon I will rejoin you in that too soft bed
Soon I will crawl back into your arms and cry
I will cry myself to sleep again
And tomorrow when the sun comes in the window
I will go, sadly, from here but I will never
Forget what happened here tonight
What happened while the violent candle licked my overtime angel
