Begging for tender cruelties
I am the voice of beauty and pain
begging to drown screaming in your rain
begging to be led
and dragged to your bed.
I am the un-sated desire
an ever raging fire
the voice that speaks in your dreams
begging for beautiful and obscene things.
I am the voice that whispers quietly in the night
I am the one bound to your dreams
I am the one who would set the beast free
begging sweetly for tender cruelty.
I am the voice of surrender and pain
I am the drops of rain as they fall upon your face
I am alive in the cold winter's night
I am the darkness inside every light.
I slip into your dreams
and set the beast free
begging softly for tender cruelty.
I am the beginning and the end
as your darkest desires
whisper in my head.
I am everything we fear ourselves to be
yet you dreamed me into your reality.
Here I walk
somewhere between life and death
A soft breath
whispering in your ear
that we are everything we love and fear.
I am your darkest desires
bound by a thread
I am the whore in your bed,
all your desires waiting to be fed.
Beauty and pain
become one and the same
as I beg
for tender cruelty.
