i thrive off the moonlights promising glow
as the curtains fall over our facade of a show
yeah you sing my body electric
your hands so heavy, so hectic
it’s oh so very ironic
that we desperately plead platonic
yet as soon as speculations drown
its not only the lights that go down.
i don’t know how
to piece together these mixed up visions
of you in my palms
of my skin against yours
of the pierce of blue
of the intensity of your lips
let alone the intensity of your eyes.
how does it make sense
to want something you’re not sure you really had?
the storm rages on
when you’re so far gone
the winds tie my tongue
and lightening hits my lung.
i can’t change your mind
the winds push me behind.
so in this torrent I can’t breathe
i just watch my sunlight leave.
i watch you wilt,
i watch you fall,
i watch you rise,
i watch you blossom.
and as I witness your efflorescence,
the more I yearn your eternal presence.
it’s difficult to ignore the beat of your heart,
when I feel it’s as rapid as mine.
it’s difficult to let go of your gaze,
when it’s making me drunk like wine.
it’s hard not to jump at the brush of your skin,
as it electrifies through me like wire.
it’s hard not to kiss you full on the mouth,
when the feeling ignites a fire.
so what can I do when I can’t confess,
when the words are on the tip of my tongue.
feelings of yearn grasp my chest,
welcome to the choke of the young.
