You’re still at my house
Lying on my couch like you own the place;
I wouldn’t rather have you in any other place.
I mean,
We’re not just talking about the weather,
We’re talking ‘bout forever and together,
Your together with someone else,

But it’s okay, cause you’re here right now,
With me,
And I will have this memory to look back on
Later

Please text me when you get home,
Please tell me that you’re okay,
Please let me know
That wherever you go
We will always be the same, cause
You are my song,
You are my heart,
You are my everything,
And even though I will never be yours,
Please text me when you get home.

11:02 pm
You’re still at my house,
In my gravel driveway, fumbling for your keys
I tell you “drive safeLY”, and you laugh at me
Being the grammar police.
You open up your car door and my heart drops,
Panic sets in cause you’re leaving and
I don’t know when I’ll see you again.
You notice my fear and lean in and kiss me on
My freckled cheek and smile through the words,
“I love you”
And my heart beats a mile a minute,
And I don’t know how much longer I’ll last
Before I faint

But it’s okay, cause you’re here right now
With me,
And I will have this memory to look back on
Later

Please text me when you get home,
Please tell me that you’re okay,
Please let me know
That wherever you go
We will always be the same, cause
You are my song,
You are my heart,
You are my everything,
And even though I will never be yours,
Please text me when you get home.

3 am
You’re not at my house,
You’re at yours, you’re on your own couch,
And my eyes are heavy,
But my heart is full,
And my phone lights up with a text from you,
An angel emoji and an “I made it”
Are enough to make me giggle with happiness, cause
You’re home and you’re safe and even though you’re
Not with me

It’s okay, cause you’re here in my heart
With me
And I will have all these memories to look back on
Later

Please text me when you get home,
Please tell me that you’re okay,
Please let me know
That wherever you go
We will always be the same, cause
You are my song,
You are my heart,
You are my everything,
And even though I will never be yours,
Please text me when you get home.

I’m okay, cause
I have all these memories to look back on

Hey!  So this is a song that I am in the process of writing; all of these words are pretty much set in stone, but I'm working on music to go with it.  Any and all thoughts are welcome! <3
your sugar-sweet voice
makes my face shift hues.
most every word you speak,
tastes of toffee and milk.

honeycomb heart
so sweet and so kind
your gentle embraces
taming my world of fear

you turn salty tears
into sweet honey
like warm liquid citrine,
golden as meadow’s light

delicate kisses
light sunshine touches
romance’s secret dance
our blooming love flowers

drunk off your nectar
a syrupy high
your heavenly flavor
erasing my mind’s pain

Unlock the door,
Lead me to your darkest place,
Just leave me there for days

I need to feel your deepest scars,
Swim inside your aching heart,
To hear what you don't say

Everything I want to know,
No shame, No lies, No secrets,
No judgement and no such thing as weakness

Break down the walls, built from fear,
Allow our souls to dance together,
And trust in simply one another,
So that love can never hide,
The darkness now only light.
Ben Sep 23
Why can’t this be like the movies,
When you leave,
You always turn back to me,
I don’t want you to go,
I know you don’t either,
Why don’t you run to me,
Our lips meeting for all to see

Your eyes grow so wide,
A love you can’t hide,
But now I’m a gamble,
So I’ve bet my heart,
Whatever the stakes,
It’s there on the table,
For you to take

Under an equinox sky,
As the stars burnt so bright,
The apocalypse dawns,
I picked the last flowers,
In the world for you,
It felt like the only thing,
Left for me to do
Ben Sep 22
Kiss me,
Slowly, Softly,
As I face your body

Touch me,
Shaking, Hands,
Don’t stop now

I’ve waited so long,
For your tenderness
And rampant heart

Naked soul,
Bare it to me,
Unclean,
Endlessly.
Ben Sep 21
This abandonment feeling,
That we both fear so much,
I hear you don’t trust,
The strength of my love,

Does yours still exist,
Or have you pushed it away,
You said that we fit,
A chance we should take,
What if we build,
Something so true,
Making us whole,
Held strong like glue,

You talk of my journey,
Like it’s something alone,
But baby a journey,
Takes a lifetime, you know

You think I don’t mean it,
Or your scared of the truth,
You’d never change me,
And nor would I you,
But if you don’t love me,
What else can I do,
I just needed to show you,
There’s no-one but you.

Your body, your beauty,
Your heart and your soul,
I fell the moment,
You entered my world

It’s taken this long,
To get to you girl,
You wanted me free,
Just you and just me,

I’m ready and waiting,
We’ll dance in the trees,
So what if you meditate,
And what if I don’t,
The questions you pose,
You know they aren’t true,

Finding your soulmate,
Opens your heart,
All of those fears,
Gone, gone, gone,
When you fall, deeply, into my arms

You feel like home,
So safe and so free,
I’ll free you to follow,
All of your dreams,
But I’m never too far,
Always there when you need me.

Lunar, Lunar,
Keep her safe,
I can’t hold her,
When she’s 1,235 miles away,
Protect her, love her,
Heal her pain,
When she’s scared,
Give her your warm embrace,
Energise her, feed her strength,
Let her know that it’s all ok.
Lace Sep 16
She belongs to the world
And I belong to her
For she is my
Whole
          World

Magic words
That set me in trance

"I believe in you."
