Being


What's that shadow I see
A silhouette in the wall of my cave
Tiptoeing like a chestless thief
Freeze!
Being freeze!
My eyes have thee.
Being be and let me be,
Being breathe and let me breathe.

Thou come for a sip,
From the vein wine of me
Thou shall lay no corpse on me
Thou shall Leave my skin no crack
Being be and let me be!
Being breathe and let me breathe!

Flee! Being flee!
Flee 'fore I blink!
Lest I wear the spirit of him
Whose tongue beckoned pyre
From yonder far and high
Being be and let me be!
Being breathe and let me breathe!

My deity see thee,
And will permit not thee,
I will lock my lids,
And lay in peace
And no drop of me
Shall tickle your tongue '
Being, be and let me be!
Being breathe and let me breathe!
