Who can I be? Without you, I am coming to nothing.
Nothing at all. For I depend on your love, support and care.
I am a horror show: freakish, spinning like a whirling dervish
Intent upon nothing but your entertainment and pleasure.
Without it, I am reduced to a flood of tears
For my only purpose now is to make you happy.
When you bought me at a great price, I turned over my nakedness to you
To do with as you will and I entered the bargain freely
Because I loved you more than anything but God.
I turned over my flesh to you because I knew you’d desired me
Even as my spirit belonged to the Most High.
I thought I was doing His will to bear the child I saw growing in my dreams.
And so, as your slave and His servant, I became a new creation–
great with child
And the contentment I read on your lovely face moved me
As I went to you to hold and kiss you and make you happy
Even as you had done a wondrous thing for me–
You filled me and made me whole once again.
