No safe place, the demons are entwined
In the bricks and pavement of buildings,
They are entwined in the DNA of flesh
And the ether of spirit, in all things that
Make us mortal.
They are in friends faces and thoughts,
They are in their smiles, they kind touch,
Which can so easily turn into a fist.
They are in this world, in this rock and sky,
And the grass and the wind and the sea,
In the hunger of prey and predator.
No safe place, love is just blackmail
To not upset or call out or cry
When they betray you.
No safe place, love is violently enforced
Silence, to not contradict or speak up
When the Trusted Ones hurt you.
No safe place, love comes in fists
When you are NOT AS THEY WANTED!,
NOT WHAT THEY TOLD YOU TO BE!
No safe place, for god looks away,
Maybe makes a pretty blossom or bird,
But does nothing useful.
No safe place, for the demons are in
You too, in your dreams and desires
No safe place, because you will
Do unto the others in your own life
What was done to you.
