Uncertain Terms [version 1]

These thoughts swarm like flies
Form like black clouds across the skies
Divide them like worms
Each half grows and squirms

Uncertain terms

These thoughts like disease
Sap my spirits, drain my energy
Spread faster than germs
More fertile than sperm

Uncertain terms

Serving the sentence
‘til it serves me
words spoken in passing
become the passwords
this match made in heaven
could go down in flames
this match could burn twice
so swept up in wordplay
playing with fire
we’re gonna play with fire

to touch you again
to hold you and maybe then
your kiss reaffirms
it soothes as it burns

in no uncertain terms
uncertain terms
