Iggy Pop. Avenue B/Afraid to Get Close
Afraid to Get Close

 Watching the cat sleep on my pillows
 Afraid to get close to anyone and afraid not
 The need of all creatures to be warmed and
 The girls who want dads
 I think the writing is eating up myself
 Preventing any togetherness with anyone
 Hurting and recycling people over and over
 How much longer?
 How many more?
 I held her in my arms and I didn't want to
 She was putting her life in my hands
