After midnight, And before the dawn A memory chases me Of two lovers Running with the stars.
I sit alone in the moonlight Waiting for a glimpse Of you again And the air smells of Jasmine and it It tastes like summer. I can feel the warmth Of the dying light of Day on my back, And the chill of sunset On my cheek.
I lie down, Surrounded by Flowers and the night Sky, Dreaming of how You once loved me Every single night.
I dream of how You took me to the Heights of passion And never let me fall. Both hero and villain, You were the love I craved the most. You were the love That I gave every piece Of my soul to.
When you touched me, My spine tingled And my breath hitched. I felt the warm embrace Of desire, Low in my belly. The ache of need And want was unbearable. But I knew you would Satisfy my every hunger. Sate my every thirst.
Now the memory fades At the edges And the colors, Along with it. But one part remains. The sound of your voice, And the words that dripped Like wax onto My darkened soul.
I carry those secret words With me, Now and until I see Your face again. I hear them in my thoughts, Feel them in my dreams. Taste them in my fantasies. They are everywhere you Are not.
After midnight And before the dawn, I hear you say, “You belong to me.”
Oh, love Oh sweet tarnished Prince, Would that my love Could cure your Fractured mind And my kiss Could free your Anguished heart, I would beg the Heavens, Once again, To take your pain From you.
I watch your descent Into madness, Helpless and afraid, But I feel I understand It, more than most, And sympathize with Your fight against the Sun.
Tragedy begets tragedy Heartbreak begets more. I know these trials Because I have witnessed Them myself. Front row to grief and loss. Center stage of the play I was not written into.
I grow tired As time passes Me by. Lying in my Raw bed, Of broken hearts And salty tears. I long for a Future, With you in it. And the chills That the Taste of your wildfire Gives. I long for you And the promise You bring. And the light that once shined So brightly in your eyes.
When darkness Comes tonight And you welcome Your dreams and And wistful wishes, Think on me. And the love I have For you.
And know, That though you Must justify your Treason against The gods, And face the consequences Of all the pain you’ve Endured, Be not afraid, For I will be there, To hold your Hand and guide your Way into our watery Slumber together.
Because my heart will Never rest, Though my body may wither. And my love for you Will never end, Though my mind might Break.
You and I are meant to be. And the Moon has smiled Upon it.
“Tis in my memory lock’d, And you yourself shall keep the key of it.”
Long ago, Beneath the moon And the clear skies, We made vows to each other, To be bound Until we meet at Eternity’s Door.
Under Her watchful I begged you to Pull me closer, Kiss my tears And grant me My moonlit Wish.
To love me until the heavens Are no more And I am made brand new.
And so, I watched time pass me By. As hours Turned to minutes, And minutes Turned to seconds, My heartbeat thrummed with Anticipation.
Until one night, Time became Immovable. I finally sighed a breath Of relief, Because I knew You were waiting For me.
Now, I look to The sky again Because evening is nigh And my fantasies Are finally coming alive.
I welcome Freedom as the cool Water drapes Across my skin. And I make my way Deeper and deeper Into the watery abyss.
Feeling your presence In my bones, With each step. Feeling your shadow In the river, With each breath.
Guided by my beloved Lady Moon And beneath your Starlight I found you, In our sacred place. Betwixt the darkest Waves of the sea, Between the beautiful beasts Of the deep And the sweet songs of the maiden Sirens.
We make memories To last until dawn And ever after Because now we both Live in the forever Night.
