Silver Metal Lover


Silver Metal Lover

Your silver skin
mercury in motion
rolling over my own pale flesh
looks
feels
right

Breaking my barriers
strength in your metal hands
patience in your circuitry
love in your machine heart

Amber eyes
reflecting  the electricity
running through the ore
in the data banks they call your mind

Or is it something more

My lover
with not quite natural flaming hair
not even looking for your humanity
have found your soul

And singing with more than perfect pitch
infinity doesn’t stand a chance against keeping you from me
my perfect
silver
metal
lover
