A Love I Can't EscapeFor you I batheMore Like This
in horribly wonderful decadence
that envelops me
crushing and choking me
beneath my own ambiguity
I haven't the heart
to hold to the utter
which I've come to feel for you
and it fears its own inability
to encompass such disgusting purity.
I want you
more than I'm willing to understand
and more than I'm willing to accept
still call to me
with such horrifying allure
that I can't help but approach
the cliff which I'm sure
will be my downfall
however perhaps if I gained you
in the fall
I might not mind.
Love Beyond the WindowWhen I was young, I believed in fairy tales.More Like This
I believed that if your heart willed it,
That love could overcome anything.
That one day, two lovers could always be together.
But those were simple lies I think...
After all, how does one reach across a window;
Reach across a screen...
To hold someone on the other side,
Before they slip through your fingers.
Like a lonely dance between air and water,
I can only stand on the surface of the lake,
And see her smiling on the other side.
Sometimes, I would draw pictures on the surface;
These thin useless arms of mine scrawling tiny doodles,
And she would smile and reply to each one:
Including a heart, for 'I love you'...
And each time I would feel,
As though I could soar through any distance,
As though I could run a hundred miles.
If only so I could see you;
If only because I missed you...
But enough I say...
Enough of this life
Far away DearI lay here aloneMore Like This
On another sleepless night
Wishin' you were here
Holdin' me tight
I can't go to sleep
For fear you'll be in my mind
As I'm dreamin' sweet dreams
Only to wake up and find
You're no where around
You're across the ocean from me
So another sleepless night goes by
So I don't dream of my far away baby
Then another long day
Without you by my side
You just came and went
Like the flowin' of the tide
I sit through my classes
Thinkin' only of you
Thinkin' of us
And if you were here, what I would do
So another day is gone
So slow it went by
As I down to sleep again
I can't help but to cry
For all I have done
Is wish you were here
But still across the ocean you are
My far away dear
I have wasted a day
Thinkin' of what could be
If only, if only
You were here beside me
If yu only you were here
Here with me
My far away dear
My far away baby
