Mud Bath

I am one with you. Let me give you my mud bath.

I am watching you. By night I'm singing my love songs.

I'm generous too 'cause I gave you your own patch.

I'm caring for you even when you neglect me.


 I'm mysterious. I dare you go deeper.

I am dangerous so don't stir my anger.

I'm loving and kind but I won't take your abuse.

I'm quiet but mind that I can cause destruction. 


I gave you all that you need.  

All that you needed was mine.

I'll be grateful for a single mention.

Spare me some of your time.

I'll be thankful for a mindful action.

You're only on borrowed time.


Where can you find someone like me?

Where can you find another like me?

Out there?

Out there?


I'm giving you the chance to bask in silence.

In this moment you will appreciate my patience.

Listen to my voice. Put down all the noise.

Enjoy this wonderful mud bath.
