i'm the lion and you're the mouse
and when i've been drinking i drown you out
i'm the loudest thing in this little house

with claws so long and a mouth like fire
you make me tremble until i'm tired
i apologize for being loud and took the teeth out of my mouth
so we'll dream and sweat again

i'm the open, wordy book
shuffle my pages, you're the wood
covering my soft spots

the morning grays and the recent rain
smell like perfume on your skin
i've a got a bone to pick with every single sentence i write and can't believe in
a dime for your smallest thoughts

and the calmest moments
where it hurts the most
you wrote a poem
i wrote a joke

in our home you are the lion
