In my dreams
I see the sunrise
In your blue soul.
Your green eyes piercing,
Searching mine for a greater truth,
An answer to all the big questions.
Why are we here? Why you and me?
I look into you too,
But different thoughts disturb my silence.
Your intelligence intimidates me.
How can I keep such a beautiful man,
A strong-willed, light-hearted, perfection.
Such lonesome thoughts can be expunged
By touching you,
A pleasure that can make me forget
The world and its worries
Forever pressing in on us.
Same world, different worries.
The future seems far off,
And the heavy past, still not far enough away.
Time threatens to tear us apart.
But here, in the now, what scares me most
Is the one I love more than anything,
Because it’s hard for me to admit the truth.
I need love, and you give me that willingly.
On my own I might let the shadows block out the sun
I might even pretend to enjoy it,
My independence, my loneliness, my death.
But with you, I make myself vulnerable,
All emotions laid on display.
Who else but you could pull the curtains back?
The man who taught me to live life large.
Intensely, my head rushing,
Lips tingling, we kiss… finally.
In this sweet, dark eternity,
You could swallow me.
And you do.
With your arms.
Like no place I would rather be.
In my dreams.
