His veins thrill with rising blood, arms wide open, heart wide shut. Still waters run deep in harms way, stone has no breath with only skin to protect us; the skin you were born into. Then above your something waters thrill with rising blood - the harm you were born into. With only your heart, your breath to protect us. Still, blood rises above your open heart. In water’s way, only skin to protect us. Arms wide shut, heart wide open, something to protect us above your thrill veins breath. Still veins wide shut.
