Love knows no bounds
His touch is like a drug and I come alive
"Mon Cheri," he whispers to me into the dead of the night
His voice is like a lullaby, a magnet luring me out of my slumber
He desires something he cannot have...longing for attention..
pleading with his eyes
In hopes that I give into the hunger I have for him
I cannot deny the ache in my heart when I am away from him, yet
I cannot pine over someone so complicated
You crave my essence one day and fight it tomorrow
Conflicted is what you are
Anxious of the decision I have yet to make
Will I be with you for eternity while fighting the demons within me...
or can I fight this battle and set aside my love for another time?
Decisions must be made, closure needs to be addressed
But what more can I do when I am a constant war with myself.
I do not want to run my lover away with my past, my imperfections
And yet I still crave him like a moth to a flame
The question still remains... is he going to fight against our love or give in
It is only a matter of time before the drug settles in or the darkness takes
Will I be your opioid or will I be what you fear the most...
Loving someone so much that it may break you
Take me with you and be my dark butterfly in the night
And I will be your raven in the daylight
A protector, lover, my fix, my beloved
You and I can no longer run away from the truth.
We are destined to be. Don't run from a curse and a blessing.
BE MINE FOR ETERNITY.
