Why am I fascinated by you ?!
When I know I am not the one for you.
We are the sun and the moon,
Waiting for the lunar moon.
Meeting once and for all.
Waiting for eternity and beyond.
For that one dreaded red conclave.
But for I know it won’t last,
I stayed away and at last,
My brain stopped wondering around,
But the question I still ask:
Was it love or dispatch ?!
So I got used to missing your light,
Although I remember it every night.
You made me look so bright,
When I was just reflecting your sight.
I used to hear you whisper at set
Saying “I want to fill your holes and make them lit.”
And when we finally met
The planets would come and greet
And we’d enjoy the warmth of your heat
Let’s hold our hands and pray all day
To share this light in every way
And make galaxies take our love
As the greatest tragedy that was ever told
When two hearts loved one another
And figured they had to say goodbye
So their heats ached upon a tear and a sigh
Just like Romeo and Juliette died
Even when they were still alive
Hoping they could live and thrive
But couldn’t stand this world
Without the other around to behold.
