bitter; beater…better?

“I’ve been saving myself for you.”

~*~

for me, bring back the beat

symphonies static in summer heat

ocean waves that washed away

the memories that will never stay

saving blood for what can’t be had

never knew you want it that bad

warm as the photographs you set on fire

i’ll be a good boy and say i’m the liar

convince me that this isn’t just a movie

and your melodrama ain’t a comedy

that the rude words colliding on the sky

wasn’t just another plot for me to die

but with everything i thought i’ll create

is just another separation desperate

and i can’t wait to bring the beat back home

but this time i’ll be playing it all alone.

Perpendicular

Say goodbye my love
I can see it in your soul
Say goodbye my love
Thought that I could make you whole
Let your lover sail
Death was made to fail…

~*~

Two perpendicular souls

Clambering for a tight hold

Lacklustre and senseless

Exceeding with ebullience

Clamouring and reaching

Fingers almost touching

Grazing but never holding

Hands parallel, not closing

Stretched muscles so tense

Creaking old bones dense

Finding a way out of deliria

Minds contradict dementia

Listen to their broken hearts

Pounding like wilder drums

And they carry on the singing

Trying to connect red strings

Against the resplendent haze

Against the turbulent tidal waves

They’ll reach ’til they lose their hold

They’ll fight hard ’til their souls dissolve.

~*~

Babe I know love is a funny thing
Born to die in the eternal spring…
