Somewhere unseen and under the covers deep.
The edge of a cliff. A burning circle. A lover's leap
And the unmade bed. Two of us dying silently.
Voices that barely exist crying violently.
Speaking an unknown tongue, we listen oddly.
Watching you tremble as my needs are disembodied.
It's shocking. The way you make me feel is my sovereignty.
Figments of my imagination and it's poverty.
A double-edged sword that chooses with cold desire.
Well acquainted with pain, I want to hold your fire.
Unfinished artwork, you're perfect. My mouth hurts.
Aggravated and jealous, I navigate the outskirts.
Stresses. Second guesses are a fact of life.
Sometimes we go to the altar for a sacrifice.
Telling each other what we want to hear - ignore the rest.
Then again, maybe we should never meet - it's for the best.
Let's never meet and regret a past endeavour.
What we have is rare indeed and guaranteed to last forever.
We'll always wonder but the truth is irrefutable.
The way it is now is so painful and beautiful...
Maybe there's a place we can go that's behind doors.
A place where you could shelter my body with yours.
Sorry for so long and wanting to be sorry-er.
Young gun. Sleepless, the unsung warrior.
A button that erases history. Words that nullify.
Infidelity and the melody of the lullaby.
Jealousy. Exile. Handcuffed and blindfolded.
Reckless. One thousand kisses as a necklace.
X's and O's. Bad habits that rose to fashion.
Whispers turn into screams in the throws of passion.
The blood in my veins and part of me is dead still.
My muscles are tired from running on this treadmill.
The sun don't shine. In the sky is a sleepy storm.
In the room, under a blanket, keep me warm.
I'd cut myself in half if it made sense to.
I run from myself and trespass against you.
And as love desires we wait until the very end.
You're a dream I had, an imaginary friend.
The dangerous angel. Kisses denied me.
But somehow I'm awake and your breath is inside me.
Nowhere to live, I'm much stronger than before.
Still though, I don't want to be strong anymore.
I'm preyed upon and followed. I move to survive.
She hunts in the fall. Once and for all - prove you're alive!
Love stays away from me. I'm out of breath generally.
Damned if I do and I face the death penalty.
The walls may come down but the flames climb.
Maybe if we both let go at the same time.
If only just once we can withdraw in private,
Hurricanes will come but maybe we'll survive it.
And if nothing kills us now, then surely something later would.
Let's never meet - it's probably for the greater good...
