Delilah

Run,
Run away
From pregnant stares
And vacant hearts
And hands that tease
The body,
The brain
To perceive
That more is meant
Than what’s not said
Run,
From misguided smiles
And ambiguous embrace,
From half-drunken chatter…
Loose tongues,
Looser lips
Scarily skillfully weave
Caress,
Entangle,
Then strangle
He who’s foolishly taken in.
RUN!
Run away!
Keep your kind eyes
And faithful hands
And unscathed soul
Pure
Whole
And clear
Of empty eyes
And selfish hands
And poisoned soul –
Run far
Far
Away
From the ignorant she,
The Delilah she;
She who will childishly play with your soul.
