I’ll Do the Same for You

If I should fall will you catch me.
In your arms will you hold me
Until the morning, through the night.
Will you see me through the hard times.
Will you see that everything’s alright.
Will you walk with me through the storm, stay
By my side.
Will you reach out when I’m not talking,
Will you speak for me if I lose my voice.
Will you soothe my troubled tides.
Will you be my bridge to peace.
Will you stay here until forever
By my side.

Undiscovered, Under the Covers

Undiscovered, under the covers,
The secrets we share while wrapped in these sheets.
The language of lovers discussed under the covers.
Within the realm where passion dwells
Where unrest is quelled, our bodies meet.
Where the universe dwindles to just dust
Dancing, in a reality, over there out of reach.

Ghost at the Wake

Let me wrap you in silence,
A calmness complete.
Chains made of feather,
In happiness replete.
Let me wash you in an ocean
Wave after wave
Of azure, affectionate love.

Let me make you my obsession
I’ll remain tied to the mast.
You will be my moment
No more future or past.
I’ll be sated, all sensation
Will mean nothing to me.
I’ll be blinded, only you will I see.

Equal And Opposite

Are you watching from the shadow?
Are you still feeling me?
Do I create a silhouette of something
In your mind? Do I
Bring forth waves of emotion
In the depth of your soul?
Am I responsible for tidal forces
Like those that exist between
Earth and Moon?
Is there still a gravity,
Something greater to come
Out there for you and me?

I want to get lost within your embrace.
Lose myself in a wilderness,
As long as I am there alone with you.

And if I lose sight of the horizon,
Am tossed about on stormy seas,
Hope will still burn bright in my heart

If I know there is a chance.
That you are the safe haven
That waits in the dark for me.

Stone Cold

Absolute zero or near enough
To make no difference
To the state of the union.
Nothing changes, it’s what we’re used to.
We’ve endless patience
Lying here in the deep freeze.
Siberian nights, and even colder days.
Our hearts have frozen over
This is our own personal ice age.
