A NIGHT OF REGRETS AND HOPES
I've drunk off the melancholy of the hazy night
It tastes sour and bitter
Like the bile of a wounded soldier
And that my love
That is because you left with the heartwarming flavour
That adds sober
And soothing acqua to my nights
Oh baby your tender touch like the petal of a blooming cherry tree that had been watched over by a thousand mermaids
Your touch screamed my doubts away
The melodious voice
That is the reason for which man dares to dare
And rain dares to rain
Your voice took the keys to my heart away
And as you swam away like a mermaid swims after being battered by men drunken off heart wrecks
You swam away with my emotions
You swam away with my heart
After you'd smoked me the ashes of your love
And I'd poured down my love for you in emotional cremation
Like a baby pours down his love through unexpected snores in a gregarious winter when he feels the comfy oysters of a mother's loving hand caress his pains away.
Maybe if I didn't hide the sweet-scented vinegar that sits dexterously at the base of my sexual horizon
Just maybe you'd have stayed
And maybe if I didn't hide the rotten skeletons that sat across the bridge of my closet like a pair of glasses sits across the bridge of a nose
Then maybe just maybe you wouldn't have left.
Wherever you are don't forget that our emotions are inextricably tied together
So as you cry
I feel my heart ache
As you merry
My souls mirth
Baby that moment you turn down the lights in your eyes....
Mine like a slave
Acts like a servant
In accordance with yours.
So I hope ...I wish..double wishes
I hope that if the winds of love are listening
And the easterlies of affection and nostalgia aren't snoring
Then I hope they deliver my note to you love
That I miss you
My nights are cold and sleepless
For if I could have you in arms again
I'm certain I would be able to sleep in my bed again......
Our bed again.
