Night Geckos
©1997 by Word Mage

you love me
and i
am in love
with you

i feel like a night gecko
so pink and paper-skinned
with tiny bright red veins
mapping my body
my teeth go hollow at the thought of getting stepped on
my black eyes sheathed in transparent lids
reel wildly as my head swings back and forth
i'm running from the light
from the heavy bare feet
which would recoil with instaneous disgust
if they knew i was there

i know you could never love me
like i love you

could you?

no, no, no
i know the answer is no

you could never be
in love
with me

you love me
but i
am in love
with you
