IF YOU ARE MINE

If you are mine
The seas of lust
Can swallow you
Like pythons swallow beings
But will vomit you at my doorstep
When the time is right

II
If you are mine
Alcohol and dope
Can hide your brains
And make me a stranger
In your high site
But will return it and make you find me
When the time is right

III
If you are mine
You can bleat like a goat
Deny me like Peter denied his Messiah
But your ego will fall
And run to me on fore and hind legs
When the time is right

IV
If you are mine
Let the Twin Towers be grazed into sand
With you in it
Let India’s earthquake
Swallow you in earth’s belly
Let ebola arrest you in its shivery prison
You will be brought to my temple
When the time is right

V
If you are mine
There will be nothing to sign
Your heart will know mine as his
And will know its owner
When the time is right
