The feel, the touch on my skin
Brings ecstasy to last forever
I feel your love all over me
Kisses so sweet and tender
The dreams, the promises we made
Carry me to a wonderland
I see myself walking with you
On a beach walking hand in hand
This fairytale inside my heart
A prayer I always sing
Your words of love bring me to tears
As I look in this silver ring
Remember waking up to the smell of mothers' breakfast on the table waiting to be eaten, while she sang her childhood songs in the kitchen?
remember being super excited to meet your friends at school but rued the moment of your eyes locking with your class teacher?
remember the love letters we would send to the people we were infatuated with because we thought they were perfect , and the gossiping we used to do about other relationships?
Remember after school afternoons were we would stall the time to go home and extend procrastination hours from school work ?
Remember when thinking that everything in the future is just a dream that would never come, but everyday was a step closer?
I smile...because I remember
because I counted every minute I lived, but never took time to count how many minutes I'm dying.
To gaze in your direction
Should your eyes divert to provoke me.
Or, in the distance,
The horizon you seek of
Would have me waiting there for you
And none other.
To listen your notes;
The pitch, the melody,
The songs you pen for me.
Whether it be in tune with mine,
Compared to other men;
The wolves that hunt you for your flesh.
To take in your breath;
Every ounce of air from your lungs,
A self-destructive fallacy,
Your troubles folding in on you.
As if the perspiration compels me
To make you feel whole again.
Until I'm sure, until my obsession
Vanishes from the thoughts
Of your attention towards me,
The gears will turn for aeons,
The tears will flow forever,
The sadness will overwhelm me.
Until then, I'll be sure to be
Your other half as destined.
