The Seclusion

Standard

How about meeting only in memories
The loveliest times
Flowers, hearts, sparkly eyes
How about locking everything in time
The beauty before decay
Frozen, subtle, kept at bay

The Muzzle

Standard

I wanna tell you I love you
But I said as you wish
I wanna hold you close
But I pushed you away
I wanna ignite
So I ignited your way

The Surprise

Standard

Butterflies and plump flowers
Rivers and evergreen trees
Marvelous and dreamy
Beautiful scenery
I casually turned back
And screamed
My shadows
They have been chasing me

The Only Dance

Standard

Ruffles and bow
Tiara and tuxedo
How a wave would kiss the shore
Gently, lightly, con amore
We have ten minutes
We don’t ask for more
Diamond eyes and scarlet cheeks
We have what we have, remember me

The Propinquity

Standard

I can feel it
I feel you right next to me
I can sense them
Your every breathing pore
I can almost touch you
Almost
So close
And still
So far
If you existed in my world too
