Loves me Not (part 2)

Why was it that as my life grew happier, fuller, fulfilled and answered for

That I thought to question about you

Inquiries of a random passing by conversation 

Of no relation to my bountiful inundation 

Made me want to swim back to the surface

A breath of fresh air that once seemed worthless

Became a wind that could carry your words

So few and so precious

As ash that was once flesh is

Far in The Stars

How much?

I span the stars 

Looking for you I can pick you out

You’re the brightest

When you smile I just can’t fight it

A beating in my heart

That could stop time, so tight it 

Squeezes me in my core

Butterflies flitter wildly 

As I wander while we

Wait for what seems an eternity 

To have your hands in mine

Tears of the Frozen

A Chilling wind passes through my heart

A hole that grew to tear it apart

Held together by finely sewn sinew

Melded forever with memories of you

To keep it frozen so

Deep thoughts of you don’t go

The sun against my face, the skin it stays frigid

The one that blinds me so, my dreams of you stay vivid

We cannot turn back the hands of the clock

N’or erase the thought or stop

One foot forward but this heart chained

One foot toward the same place I remain

Here with you for all eternity

An ice maiden, you are hurting me

No more tears will roll

Frozen in my eyes

Down my cheeks so cold

To the mouth you kissed with lies

An ice maiden turned to iron

The torture where I return

A heart furnace which the fire in

Will never once more burn

Lost Shadow

Penumbral love lost

The light steers you away

So bright and I lose sight

Another day

And I’ve lost you again

Regrettably never will I find another spot under the sun

Dark shadow of mine

We try to chase you together

In the dark between buildings

I’m blind but the trill of your saliva

Warm and unmistakable

Now tingling with the cold of your breath

My ear is deafened in the ecstacy, this bond unbreakable

I know you too well sweet darkness

I hide here in your swell

My secrets and fears consoled in you

Quietly all is well

We whisper words for no one else to hear

Savory intricacies of our lives and passions

The taste of your lips on the tip of my tongue

In distasteful fashion the noises you make

They chill my spine and raise my hairs

I stand straight to attention as all else

The way you stare up towards me

As you steal every ounce of air

Beckoning me down toward the fissure

I breathe you in

As I slumber deeply within you

The abyss where I would spend eternity

A time of infinity to be blind

Would still not be enough with you as mine
