Poetry Clips – Lest (Where I Fear To Tread)


Your love

Is like an ocean

I’m within you

You sustain me

Leave me starving

All and nothing

You are the yawning chasms

Where I fear to tread

There is no escape

Lest you wish it

You roll me under

To your depths

I who am within

Take on your colours
