Passport Love

You have boundaries too, haven't you?
I hear you, but don't let you

in with your feelings
There is no room for them

First, you shall have to win
enough love with me

as a passport, and even then
you may not get any further

than a waiting room
where you are spun in

by the sticky silk
of my own feelings

As a child, I have learned
that it certainly does not help

to start nagging or tickling
and that you'd better think

that I love you anyway
