Sweetheart

SWEETHEART

THERE IS NO ONE,
TO POLICE YOUR LOVE TO ME.
RELEASE YOUR LOVE TO ME,
AND I WILL FREE,
THE RETICENCE,
OF PAST LOVE LOST.

WE CAN WRAP OURSELVES,
IN A WEB OF DESIRE,
A NON MATERIALISTIC PLACE,
A SAFE PLACE,
TO MAKE LOVE.

WE CAN INTOXICATE OURSELVES,
WITH EACH OTHERS SCENT,
THAT IS MEANT,
TO HARBOUR LOVE.

LOVE,
ONCE GIVEN,
LASTS FOREVER!
UNLIKE US!
FOR OUR TIME IS SHORT.
WHAT LIES ABOVE OR BELOW?
WHO KNOWS THE FUTURE?
LET US CREATE A NEW WORLD,
WITHOUT TEARS OR SCARS.

I LOOK TO THE EAST,
SEE THE CLOTH CURTAINS,
CREATING A DIVIDE,
BETWEEN US AND THE WORLD,
THE END OF ONE LIFE,
AND THE START OF ANOTHER,
TO RECOVER, IN LOVE.

IN THE MORNING,
TO ME,
YOU WILL STILL BE LOVELY,
AS WE AWAKE TOGETHER,
FOREVER THE FUTURE OURS,
AND MAKE A LIAR,
OF THE PAST,
FOR IT CAN NEVER LAST,
IN MY ARMS.

TAKE MY HAND,
AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND,
THE MAN I OFFER!
I OFFER YOU,
MY STRENGTHS,
MY WEAKNESSES,
THE PASSIONS AND THE DESIRES,
THE FIRES, STOKED,
THAT YOU HAVE SET ABLAZE.

WE CAN INTERLOCK OUR SOULS,
WITH OUR LIMBS,
THROW OFF THE WOES,
THE FEARS, THE TEARS,
OF THE YEARS AND YEARS,
AND LOOK AHEAD,
FROM YOUR BED,
NOT BACK,
DO NOT LACK, THE COURAGE,
TO TAKE MY HAND,
AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND,
THE MAN.
