I can't help it when I look into his eyes

When he tells me that his mother's middle name was Martha
That he loves the smell of the supermarket and snow
And that he doesn't like the taste of pickles
Because they're too sour for his tongue
When he tells me that he's never loved a woman like me before

I want to know everything he has tucked away under those sapphire stones
Eye contact
From across the cafeteria table
Maybe you were saying something
But now we don't speak
We just sit quietly
And we might as well be alone
In this room together
Your blue green eyes
Locked on mine
Until we look away
I'll just bathe in your smile
We have these little moments of eye contact that are just a little too long to be normal. I sincerely enjoy them.
Verse 1:

I thought that
It'd be obvious
That you and I
Would be
Together

I knew it
From the very
Start

But maybe I'm
Delirious
Since I met you
I've been
Looking

Only
At The
Stars

Chorus:

But now that
Things got hard
We lost our way
Between what we
Said
And what we
Say

Let's go back
In time
Erase
This crime
And we'll
Pretend
That
We Just
Met

2nd Verse:

We were at the top
I thought that
We would never fall
The view was
Beautiful
From where we
Stood

Days and months and years
Would pass and
All would stay the same
Cause we would do
Everything
We could

Chorus
Last Verse
To Come

You're made of the finest gold,
But if gold means getting old,
alone, then I'm not as pricey anymore.

Crystals and diamonds collide,
When you got hurt and you cried,
My creation crashed in front of my eyes.

Show me your face, my angel,
I need to see your "universe eyes",
Bring me the good evangel,
Let me hear your quiet cries.

So silently, too secretly,
So unbearably, too sleeplessly,
Hidden from the surface, masterly.

Heaven seemed to drip on us,
No dishonesty, we could trust.
But patience, like copper in rust.

In my head, you will still gleam like a sapphire,
But in my heart...you will burn like a sad fire.
This is about a person who was charming and priceless. But, she didn't show me her pain, and instead, she gave me the best memories of my life.

I didn't grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth
Mine was made of diamond, sapphire, ruby, and jade
Far more precious than those spoons of silver and gold
Because I didn't know money
But I knew love
The most precious gem that you can't buy

Sapphires wrapped in suede,
She was every color I never defined.
An icy remembrance lingers and grows,
How I wish to rewind.

I dreamt of her last night,
Empty past in my present mind.
A deaf god before me,
The planets finally aligned.

She was free,
Yet she no longer shined.
Still, I cannot forgive myself for such foolish mistakes.

sapphire-like pure eyes
an ocean full of sky blue -
deep, glossy and true

The clashing waves whispered into my ears.
Standing in front of the Sapphire blue,
The warmth from the pale softness under my feet wrapped away my fears.
The calmness of the never ending ceiling left no clue.
The time passed slower than the emerald jewel departing into the foam.
The whiteness cast a shadow over me as it sang freely,
If only I could be like them and carelessly roam.
The clashing tides seduced me into it’s embrace, warmly yet eerily.
Will I be able to sink into the royal blue darkness?
Or will I be drifted off into the cold and empty waters
As the I closed my eyes and left myself to the painful sweetness,
“Nothing really matters”
The words she said flashed before my eyes.
The mesmerising yet deadly ocean,
resembled her under all her disguise.
It was the hidden side of her that she kept for so long, all the beauty and the emotion.
Her soul was the ocean and I was drowning in her charm

Sapphire eyes across the room,
Two oceans etched inside the moon.
Twin skylines descended to human form,
But behind lies two heavy storms.
Typhoons of ideal, perfect things,
Susanoo’s double diamond rings.
Perfect inside, perfect out.
But always, always, always doubt.
I escape this cloud of destruction with a different aura--
one of ruby moods and sapphire disposition.

I shine into this new threshold with desperate hope
and a thirst for diamonds.

What will this new hell endure?

The fiery pits of fashion
or the comforting waves of idleness?

Whether the weather,
hot or icy
my weak determination lies in the false promise
of an improved destiny.
