If You Dare

IMG_2015

take me to your low-lit lair
and rip these layers
rip my layers

i’m only flesh and velvet
when you lay me bare
my bones can sense
your sinful stare
so i’ll kneel for you
like i’m saying prayers

third eye’s open
i see everywhere
i’ve looked at life
from heaven’s stairs
if you want
i’ll take you there
                                                    but only if you dare
