If I thought you could take
this out of a context which
wouldn't shatter as I said so
I'd say you are better than Oprah
by all means you may not mean
to say we all see things in a way
you have seen long before
but the fact remains I love
the threat of you leaving me
to my own miserable devices
the very same devices you
may well have designed
for me before I could see
they were my own creation
