More Than Just an Onion

Layers of an onion I gave to you
Like a circle, unbroken
Like the brightness of the moon
The warmth of the sun
I am your constant

At the heart of the onion
Is my heart - I give to you
More than an onion (a circle)
Wrapped in thin brown paper
I am potent with love
Fierce in my devotion

A kiss from an onion
(My lips to your lips) stained
With my faithfulness,
My commitment,
You possess me
I am sweetly poisoned by you
There is no cure - I don't need one
You are my constant
