I Am Your Slave
by Diana Raab
I am pulled into your energy
I am yanked into your heart.
I borrow your breaths
as I search for my last one
wondering what I was thinking
when you reached for me
and I said okay before pulling back
into my cocoon which wrapped
protective strings around me.
So many days later, you came back,
pulled those fine strings to unravel
my world watching me spin in circles
to release myself from your grasp.
I am your slave and there’s no other way
of looking at this predicament I am in.
