And she gently took her chin in her hand and raised it until their eyes met
And soft whispers left her lips—

I love you.
When you can’t see through the darkness, I love you
When the stars fill your heart with wonder, I love you
Even when the clouds won’t stop pouring, I love you
I love you.
When winter’s lingering ice burns you, I love you
When you’re a ravaging tornado of passion, I love you
Even when you can’t get out of bed, I love you
I love you.
When you miss the good old days, I love you
When the world races by at warp speed and you can’t breathe, I love you
Even when you can’t— I love you
I’m here
I love you
As you are— yesterday, today, tomorrow…
I love you.

I crave self destruction
I crave bleeding veins
And sleepless nights spent in a fit of craze
Mascara smeared
And fresh white scars
Like a flag
Betray the heart

I crave desperation
I crave a hollowed syringe
And the feeling in your stomach standing on the edge of a bridge
One false move
One small slip
And there you go
Lost to the abyss

I crave contamination
I crave a stranger’s touch
And crave to readily welcome just as much
Both in romance and rivalry
Biting lips
Or clashing fists
Teeth sinking into skin
Tongues grazing wrists

I crave pain
I crave adrenaline
Knowing the mistress, Danger
Making love to her
But I can’t seem to find her here
So I search in the bottles
I search with my knuckles against the walls
With metal on my thighs
And poisonous, addicting, burning lies

I crave
And I search
And I crave
And I search
And I climb and climb
And ride the high
Of flirting with Danger
My, oh my
But it’s been a while now since she’s flipped my switch
‘Careful, now,’ she whispers
And at last I lose my grip

He called her
And her heart melted
Like iron in a forge
His to be melded
And held
Close to his person
His secret weapon

and for a moment
just a moment
everything stands still but me

and for a moment
just a moment
the world is mine entirely

terrestrial minds suffocate in the clouds
Logic and Rationale scream out loud
consuming the oxygen needed to live and die
leaving none for those with galaxies in their eyes.

Atmosphere pressures all to conform
and crushes all that stray from the norm.
These are conditions where land lubbers thrive
and star chasers are crippled by society’s vice.

I know
I know
Within my heart
That I
To the Stars
