From merciful dreams I rise
to the sound of a man's curious calls
to take brief respite in conversation
held from fortress walls

The sanctum of my heart
steadfast and closed in fear

A cold calm rears its ugly head
to froth at the mouth like a mad dog
to protect its turf from 
the threat of some man's lust
