FANTASY

Rid me of this fantasy
Stop me from living a lie
This world of pretense I’ve come to adhere to
These realities I’ve come to deny

What we have isn’t real
It’s as empty as a hollow drum
This contrived world of feigned togetherness
Is starting to leave me empty and numb

ONE TOUCH

One touch, one kiss is all I need
To bring this love to life
Let me feel the yearning in your skin
See the hunger in your eyes

I need to know that I’m all you want
That I’ll be all you’ll need
Because I want you, I want it all
Love, lust and all it’s greed

So come find me in the sky tonight
We’ll meet amongst the stars
I’ll softly kiss your longing lips
To the beating of our hearts

CAFFEINE

I’m hopelessly drawn to you
In ways I can neither explain nor define
You are my life’s irresistible brazen force
My inebriating sip of wine

You touch me in places that are hidden deep
Places that no one has ever seen
You’re the relentless rush pulsing through my veins
My own addicting black caffeine

CLARITY

What am I to you, I need to know
Because I can’t handle the uncertainty
Am I a fleeting thought, a passing whim
Or am I your newfound clarity

Tell me how you feel my love
Am I a cause to live for, a call to action?
Or am I merely just a gust in the wind
To you another ephemeral attraction

AXIS

I’m the earth and you’re the sun
I’ve always gravitated towards your shine
My world revolves around your axis
Your rhyme and reason, your space and time

No matter where I go or how fast I spin
All I ask is you put your faith in me
Because my love, my darling, I’m yours to have
Within all of these planets and galaxies

VORTEX

You’re a vortex that keeps pulling me in
The whirlwind within you keeping me banded
I keep getting caught in all of your spirals
Distraught in your ripples leaving me stranded

TAKEN

If you’re getting tired of our love
No one is forcing you to stay
No hands are trying to hold you back
You’re free to walk away

But trust me our memories will haunt you
When you realize what you’ve forsaken
Oh my love, my darling you’ll come to know
That by me you’re surely taken

RIDDLE

You’re a puzzle I’ve been trying to put together
But the pieces never seem to fit
You’re a riddle I’ve been wanting to answer
But it seems that I’ve lost all my wit

You’re a theory I’ve been dying to prove
But the data always gives me some doubt
You’re an equation I’ve been attempting to solve
But none of the formulas ever tend to work out

These mysteries of you keep me coming back
Despite how hard I try to start anew
Because no matter where I end up in life
I always find myself caught in the riddle of you

RENEGADE

In the territory of my heart
You chose to play the offense
My defensive strategies barely fared
In the wake of your persistence

You managed to win the game, steal my heart
Cut through my defense lines
Pass self-inflicted borders and self-esteem grenades
Survived crawling through explosive mines

But you turned against me in the heat of it all
Left me deserted and betrayed
Thought I was kissing the lips of an ally
When I was consorting with the renegade

A LOOK

There’s this look that I crave for
A tenderness in your gaze
A desperation in your wanting
A lust that sets my soul ablaze

The way I see my future
When looking into your eyes
Watch the years unravel before us
All the dreams and adventures we’ll realize

The way we gaze at each other lazily
In between sheets on a Sunday morning
The look of vulnerability in the mirror
When I realize how fast I’m falling

I just want you to look at me
The way sailors do at sea
Realizing the beauty and infinity
Of what this life of ours could be
