Your heart is surrounded by glaciers of ice
While mine roams wild with dancing flames.
We destroy one another playing for the vice
And become scarred in fatal games
When too close we get, your heart melts
and frostbitten mine becomes
Time is our enemy and to the ground it has us knelt
This passion renders my heart throbbing,
for what I feel is not allowed to be felt
You provoke the flames,
but somehow have a calming effect.
Smiling when catching me off guard,
My every emotion you can detect
Blind you are, and cannot appreciate works  of art
While my ears deafens and no music on earth
can sooth my burning heart
You drown your sorrows in alcohol and self-pity
While I have to deal with mine in sobriety
Yearning for warmth, you set your soul afire.
So desperately your acceptance I want to gain,
that I risk suffocation, of course all of it in vain.
A selfish love like this could never suffice.
That is the curse of fire and ice.

How did it feel when you took her and made her
Understand that you were the one who cared and
Showed her more compassion?
How did it feel when you've noticed all her
Imperfections letting her go off into the sunset in
A paper town?
How did it feel?
Oh! How did it feel?
Watching over her like the hawk, making sure she'd text back,

How did it feel when you told her all of those things
Before she ran off and never came back?
How did it feel when you looked for clues and letter boxes
Going on a journey just to see if she'd turn up,
How did it feel?
Oh! How did it feel?
Watching over her like the hawk, making sure she'd text back....
One day, one day.

i will never get to
taste the sweetness
of your lips - their soft
firmness. the hunger of them.

i'll never feel your lips
eagerly wanting my lips,
the way they would part
to welcome me inside.

i'll never surround your lips
with every fibre of every ounce
of all the good and bad that i carry
in my heart and soul, mind and body
for one moment, all of it channeled
into one passionate kiss

no. i never will.

I ENVY the seas of Neptune that he rides,
      I envy the thrills,
Of his royal chariot of May;
      Gracing these glistening hills.

Gaze upon our journey, Love!
       Where the stars may gleam
On our forbidden melody,
       Bless this love, unto me!

I envy lakes of Swans,
        That flutter on August Eves,
That bless a forbidden Love,
        With newfound Autumn Leaves.

Opened is the portal,
         On this summer's Eve for me,
That jewels and diadems of Wealth,
         Shall never; could never be.

I envy our everlasting light,
         And bells that gently ring
Over that fateful evening,
         That - envy shall bring.

Yet interrupt Spring's blossom,
         Even when our hearts may bleed,
Run into this everlasting night,
         Under the stars with me.

I can see the stars... from America, oh.

lips like a ripe plum, so juicy.
my mouth waters, begging
for a taste.
i would suck the nectar
from your skin.
each sip would be sweeter
than the one before.
i would drink you like fruit juice,
and i wouldn't stop

until the sugar
made my teeth rot.

Those eyes that holds a thousand meanings
Those lips that sends ecstatic feelings
Every touch it burns the sanity in me
Oh how I wish I could just let it all be

Good morning,
what'd you wake to?
What kind of eyes you lookin' through?
Tell me,
was it ever me you wanted?
'cus every dream I have
I'm haunted...
Oh, babe
I feel this kinda way now...
the way the sun rays warm us all
like anticipation for the  
rain to fall...
I gotta' know,
are you in this for the
long haul?
I know I shouldn't be...
Honestly, I'm not looking
for an answer
they'll warn you,"You can't change her,"
so in my mind
I walk to you
leaves under my feet
& in my mind we meet.
& I poke fun
& say, "Where've you been?
You down for sinning?"
I'm just kidding."
I just desire simple living,
picking flowers,
extending hours
in your presence
earthly heaven.
Laughing in a 7/11
to buy a smoke
& then we choke
from laughing.
Oh, babe
I'm already fucking trapped in

It's fine, yea it's fine
I sit 'round a fire, wine & lips
eating pears,
he loves my hips
And then he grips
Yea, babe,
here I go again
I've slipped
he hands me a clip
I burn...
& there I go,
it's all gone
I blow him
like some bubble gum.
with you
sitting there in a
corner of my mind
tucked away he'll never find.

Still wonderin',
what do you think at night?
Who is it that you write?
I know it's not my right
to know
but you,
you always linger
& I'm worse
a curved
index finger.

That song you wrote
is still on replay mode
It used to make me special
to leave, you did cause you said shall.

I wish you didn't have too
though you said it is for me too
I never want you to leave
because to you I want to live.

The lines of that song,
oh what happened wrong
can't we just relive the lines
and grow together like vines.

I want to hear you sing that song you composed
as long as I live but why does everyone oppose?

I never thought I would feel this,
when I am with you I feel peace.
Without you beside me gives me sting,
I may be confused at times but I know this isn't just a fling.

You make me so happy,
like a honey bee in glee.
I don't know why nor how,
but you never failed to make me feel wow.

Right now, I am missing you so much,
I don't know how long could I take it like deep pain from a punch.
I really want to hear you,
because I indeed worry about you.

I am hoping we are fine,
just as like thriving like a vine.
I don't want to lose you,
because I am sure that will make me blue.

When I'm with you, it feels like I'm in a whole new world,
without you everything seems blurred.
Having you near me drives me to a new inspiration,
as you encourage me to a new and joyful direction.

All I want now is for us to be better,
as I give you a cuddle.
It may be wrong to them but it doesn't matter,
because what's important is you make me feel dazzled for you are my candle.

...as you stay as my Dazzle...
but you didn't

He watched as she spoke
Her gentle lips moving seductively
The scent of her perfume haunting him, inside and out
Confusion in placement of words

He could find no explanation for himself
No excuses
No reasons
He was mesmerized, flooded with infatuation

The desires he had would haunt him again
At night…
During the day…
Her dark brown eyes blink right back at him
Her smiles, enthusiastic with charm

I saw you smiling, beautifully engulfed with happiness. If I were to list the things I love about you, I could never be done with it. I saw you blush at the words I say, and I wish I could tell you them every day. Light touches on your face to feel your cheeks, firm hugs connecting body heat. Even if it was just for a second, I had you close to me.

And then you pull away
To go back to reality
Back to the reality we both will ever be facing
The reality in which
You are not with me
But him.

forbidden love.
