Loving you is a drug
I know I should quit you
But the further I stay clear
The more I want you near.
Loving you is like a black potion
So much I don’t wish to commit to stay
Yet here I am again.
Loving you is a hurt I yearn for everyday
In bed I lie in bed awaiting your return
Your sultry voice whispering my name
That also comes with your touch.
I saw a rose growing in my garden
Surrounded by bushy thorns and elephant grasses
Even in a sea of green and strife
Lies beauty within.
A simple lust
Is all I yearn for:
Just for me to be
In the sweet here and now
With you in mind as well in heart
A desperate anguish in
Love’s deepest well,
I seek to die for
Slowly and steady as a stabbing knife
Extinguish this love I have carried for you all these centuries
Let it scatter with the wind
And be gone from this world into the beyond.
A nightingale she was
Singing aloud to my soul:
“How far would you go,”
She asked me, “Till you accomplish
That treasure that you seek?”
Mesmerised and spellbound
Was I, as I soared
Through winter’s age
Searching for a love
That knows no pain.
I want to do it in the shower
Let’s do if while standing
Let me lift you higher
Feel the water splash all over
Grip me tighter
Hook your knees, jerk your hips
Call out my name
I’ll do the same
While we grind slowly
And then when we’re done
I’m going to do it again.
One day, and it is coming,
Just like the northern strong winds
I will become old and grey
Skin shrivelled and brain senile
Sitting often with a mug of tea in hand
And reminisce more about the past:
Did I love you enough?
Did I play with the kids often?
Did we smile and laugh a lot?
Just as we were there to bury our Dead
When we too become dead
Who will pick up the burden to bear?
So many questions
My mind grows weary with fear
This cup of tea is getting warm
Like me seated here by the fireplace alone
While outside it has started to snow.
You were there when I needed a friend
You’ve been there
Through sunshine, heartbreaks and stress
I’ve got you on my mind
Like migraine with no end
Just when I feel the rain
Getting ready to ruin my day
I drink coffee
And I feel better again!
I’m not going to wish you long life,
Because you’re never going to get it.
I’m not going to say ‘God bless you’
Because you already are blessed:
You’re alive and in good health;
Cast worries and sadness off you mind
Don’t doubt, don’t fear,
Laugh more, live more
And find out who you are.
