Double You

Tee, Ewe, Double You,
The alphabet of our lives
I and thee and thee and I

When I met you I was suffocating
You ripped the handkerchief from my face
So strong, so violent, so defiant,

That's when I began to see double
I fell out of my protective bubble
Had my knee wrenched from its socket

Flung unkindly into the world of
Want and need and desire
And most importantly love

You were my blanket when I was cold
And goosebumps popped up along my arms
You were the material that was safe to cling to

Then sometimes you erupted
Flames burst forth from your ears
And I had to run away,

There were two different sides to it
I was seeing double all the time
Sometimes I had to close my eyes to go on

Tee, Ewe, Double You,
The alphabet of our lives
I and thee and thee and I

The End
