Simple words just lying on the page,

Just waiting to be read.

Chest rising and heaving,

Just waiting to breathe.

.

 

Everything I ever wanted,

Was left in the hands of my lover.

My prince, my savior,

Make those dreams come true.

.

 

Hush.

Whisper the lyrics that go to the song.

Do not fret my dear,

I will protect you from what will come.
.

 

This sacrifice,

These lies that are streaming from my lips,

This gaze upon me that won’t let up,

This evil that stays put in my heart.

.

 

Darkness surrounds me like night,

Engulfing me in the hated love of who you were.

I will wait for you my love,

And then forever we will be eternity.

.

 

Take this hand,

Close your eyes and dance to the music.

Let yourself step lightly to the rhythm,

The rhythm that is dead.

.

 

Listen.

The words spoken from the page have been revealed.

Caress this face of mine,

Kiss these lips upon my face.

.

 

These scathed hands,

Burnt and worn.

They hold your gentle pale hands,

The ones that have stayed young all those years.

.

 

Images flash before me,

Unknown to the eyes that see them.

Blind in this world full of nothing,

And only you can heal them.

.

 

Your love for me,

My love for you,

Will always have a price,

A price of death that will someday end us completely.

.

And that rhythm that you step to,

Will forever end.

Then maybe….

There will be more than forever.
