As your eyes deeply gaze into mine
Clashing fire and ice collide
Melting the shackles of guilt within my heart
Subsiding the hatred and pain seared into your soul.
Our hands now reach out and touch
Not only our bodies, but also our hearts and minds
We now embrace each other until the sun sets
Both wishing for this moment to never end.
Tonight, the demons within catch up on me
Dragging me back into the endless abyss
Pulling me back into this self-created void
Making me beg release and scream your name
Yet something in your soulful eyes tell me
Salvation awaits at the end of my self-created void
That part of you that placates my innermost being
Is also the very thing that scares my soul to retreat.
Should you still reach out to save me
Even though I exist to pull you in, too?
Would I still elicit your passionate glance
Once you uncover and see who I really am?
Alas, our lips touch and lock
And a comforting embrace follows
Pacifying my troubled soul
Waking up your sleeping heart.
Now, let this precious moment between us
Sink within the core of our minds and hearts
Let this night...our first of many, or our first and last
Be our gift to each other before time slips away too fast.
With kisses and caresses guiding us
Making us forget who we really are
Tonight, I trust your heart to guide my soul
For I know that with your love, I could be made whole.
Would you always feel the same about me?
Is the gamble worth its weight in gold?
Now, my love, I ask you
Should we, would we?
