i give myself not so freely away

being ill-equipped and disinclined to exorcise the ghosts of kisses from past lovers lingering on the back of your neck i ask of you to take your flag elsewhere to plant in someone else's earth, for you to kindly step back; you trespass on precious ground buried with keepsakes that continue to breathe. i am desirous not for your footprints staining the places i go. i am more than a country you wish to visit, but a world wrapped in flesh made reachable only by deciphering the languages, should i choose to show you, on the skin of my wrists. and i give myself not so freely away.

this sounds more like a declaration, written in the most poetic way, but stil a declaration. Clear, determened, harsh, straight to the point

Your breathe is unstoppable
do not let anyone to stain a single dot of the new winds you inhale
