Medicine Woman

I told you my deepest secrets
I opened every scar of my soul
to let you watch into the flesh of my life

now I have to kill you
james bond would say
but I decided to make love with you

I was sure you were a medicine woman
a shaman with a bag full of magic roots
an ancient spirit able to close the ripped parts of me

so you did
and there was light and darkness
during your dancing ritual

I was drunk but you healed my hangover
showing me the right path
following me in the night for a cathartic piss

we got up one late morning
and we kept talking about our future
we should write a list of proposals
you said before kissing me
