I have witnessed every ritual
That can scar a human heart,
I have tasted all the deaths of love
A woman can abide, 
And I tell you: no pain
Nor tenderness
From without can reach me-
Bridge the endless distance 
From my skin to me;
Crack that fevered shell 
And set me free.

Except you. 
You might.
If you should think it
Worth the fight,
You just might.
