She was a reflection of the city lights

Her smile alone was inspiration for him to write

He approached her like a ghost

And ended up shipwrecked along her coast

She whispers to him as if she’s giving him CPR

He loved her so much it almost healed every scar

But the lights come and go

Now he’s stranded alone on her plateau

He searches for her through the night

He remembers that smile and continues to write

I write till my fingers numb
I let it out and feel so dumb
The words come to me one by one
I fire them off like if I had a gun
I’m in love with you my dear
And I will be for years and years

Soon years will go by

But the silence can never conquer you and I

And all the fears that kept us apart

Will dissipate from the emptiness left in our hearts

But the sun will rise

And maybe then we can give it another try

So with words I leave on a light

I signed the peace treaty but continue to fight

There’s elegance in the seductive way you move your body

And how you make the most innocent things seem so knotty

How you raise your head up like a serpent with your hypnotic eyes and devilish grin

Ready to sink your venom deep under my skin

As your affection quickly spreads

I realize that my defenses are already dead

I forfeit to the sensations

Get lost on the exploration

As I’m overpowered by your charm my heart pounds out of my chest

I die in your arms with a smile and a taste of happiness

I let the fire burn

As I keep taking your turn

The ice cream melts

But I don’t want anybody else

So I slave for a notion

Dedicatedly unspoken I reject any forward motion

A love insomnia

Searching for unattainable euphoria

One more drink

My love printed in ink

Suffocating in my desire

I burn along in the fire

I love you so much that it hurts

But I love you without remorse

So I refuse to close my eyes

Without any sleep I guess I will have to improvise

Love, it can grow on its own

Just because you don’t feed or water it doesn’t mean it won’t find a home

Not everything has an answer but then not everything has to be questioned

I love you but I guess that no longer needs to be mention

A four post bed

A physical confinement adding to the madness in my head

It’s no wonder why I can’t sleep

Love doesn’t count sheep

The glow on my phone lights the entire room

This fucking place is slowly turning into a tomb

It’s too hot, it’s too cold

I’m stuck in this bed while sleep is on hold

I close my eyes and see your face causing my heart to ache

I love you so much that it keeps me awake
