The peace in your voice

belies the tremors in your tones

Your calm skin wraps

a hundred chaotic bones

And while you hide those pretty well

with your ever-smiling face

darling, you can be sure

I have scratched your surface

So come to me with all your spines

let down all your defenses

and I will love you with all my scales

between us, there are no fences
