Three Pieces
© 2000 Janis Carper

tired and thirsty
trapped in the well
too many secrets
no one to tell
who'll pull me out?
who'll get there first?
the lover or the liar
I fear the worst

body, heart and mind
here they are, three of a kind
three different pieces of the same hungry soul
three different pieces
swallow them whole

dark in the dampness
damp in the dark
who'll light the fire?
what makes the spark?
rub sticks together
strike stone on stone
bruise me with longing
this flesh and this bone

body, heart and mind
here they are, three of a kind
three different pieces of the same hungry soul
three different pieces
swallow them whole

somewhere in history
this life was saved
somewhere between
the sky and the grave
it will not wither
crumble or crack
but leave with a thunder
and never look back

body, heart and mind
here they are, three of a kind
three different pieces of the same hungry soul
three different pieces
swallow them whole
