Why do our eyes overflow like riptide every night?
The assonace and the dissonance blind us
Concealing a passion of renewed innocence
You paralyze me, inside and out
"From sorrow to serenity"
We stretch our arms so far to try and reach
During the week when darkness reigns
Only to withdraw loving hands and hiss in tongues
So far apart
Fortitude failing as frail days grow long
Salvation is present in your emerald eyes
My puzzle has been completed with elegant expertise
As if you've known the patterns all along
But our ritual grows tiresome
And heavy lids are plastered wide with tears
Four months and already we've unsewn our seams?
Does our castle crumble at the slightest breeze?
Throw down your defenses and breathe
In the autumn air, the sacrifice
Of our hearts
Through destruction we find creation
In love and in darkness
We are eternal.
