your face is red and my eyes are red
and our words are whirlpools pulling
in everything around us.
can we afford to break so much?
there is ice in our souls and there
is fire in our spirits and there is
water in our eyes.
the wine you hurl at me flows
down like blood from my hair.
the snakelike sneer slithering slowly
onto my face hisses at you.
your face crumples in frustration
as you protest my accusations.
but I can see a lie for what it is.
how much is it going to take, dear,
to shatter the glass that it is your eyes?
i need to destroy you.
but wait- do you hear
the opening notes of our song?
you have lied to me for a while now.
the truth can wait a bit longer.
let the flame burn through the water.
our love is impossible.
let the fury consume you.
together, we are a raging inferno.
we are a little bit of heaven and a
little more of hell.
we are the puzzle
pieces that don't fit together.
we are the clap of thunder, the
flash of lightning, the pour
of rain, the teardrops of the sky
under which we kiss.
you are warmth and i am heat.
and together, we can shake the world.
but what use is it if we both have
but what use is it if when the moments of
reminiscence are over, we are nothing but
tired and afraid?
and what use is it when the earthquakes stop
and the lightning fades and i'm
alone standing there with nothing to hold onto but
teardrops and aftershocks?
