Gentle Force

Go away you gentle force leave me be gentle be forceful but be somewhere else

Go to the clouds and be a ring around the moon not to say a circle not to be a circle not in the nearness of me.

You gentle touch you force of nature repetition makes a gentle gesture a powerful blow

The gentlest touch erodes my facade, the sweetest word makes me burst into tears, tears become clouds and clouds become rain and rain becomes the sea and the sea becomes the salt upon my skin.

So go away you gentle force Don’t be a circle don’t be a cloud don’t be the sea or the salt upon my face
