Fire Alarm

Forest fire that guards my moon
Backdraft up against monsoon
Wave of flames outside my womb
Mustn't let me speak too soon
Give my love away to whom
Steals my cake, pops my balloon
Sinks a knife in my cocoon 
Stabs my heart and leaves the room
Bleeds me out inside my tomb
Does this do me good or harm?
Out of reach, at length of arm
Lonely Goetherd on her farm
Chicken dinner missing parm
What use are my wit and charm?
Trapped behind this fire alarm
