Bliss

Poem By M.L. Bennett

Make me a promise
Swear me a vow
Tell me it'll all be fine somehow
I'm in it for all
Or I want none
I heard it's the chase that's supposed to be fun

Sing me a lullaby
I'll be your slave
Gently tuck me into my grave
Smile on my face
Blind me with bliss
I'll look the other way all for your kiss

You're the song my heart beats to
The words my soul hums

You gave me life again
The place I want to be
Funny how I don't care
You're also the death of me

I'll love you forever
I swear that I'll stay
No matter how I try
I can't walk away
Resigned to my fate
March to your drum
I reach for your love
I savor my crumb

Build me a pyre
Call it our home
I could care less
Just don't leave me alone
Hold me an hour
Kiss me a day
I'll hold you to me til you hold me away

You're the song my heart beats to
The words my soul hums

You gave me life again
The place I want to be
Funny how I don't care
You're also the death of me

Lullaby For Little Bird

Little Bird, my Little Bird
Soar away on the wings of your dreams
But when morning comes, fly home to me
So I can tell you good morning

Fish

I'm a fish beneath the sea
Swimming in these troubled waters
And I just can't seem to breathe
Swimming fast as I can go

The Heart

Envied could be the seasons
Ever changing without a hurry
They know what's next and is to come
Like all immortals, the future is no worry

The Dried Rose

Our love is like the dried rose
No life left inside
All color is faded
But looks the same as when it died
