Like a Sunday autumn frost,
You settle on my skin,
Your embrace sending chills up my spine.
We rock back and forth
Like the dial on a grand father clock
Lying on the hammock in your backyard,
The scratchy material itches my bare legs.
We look into each others eyes,
Whispering our hopes and dreams
Under the humming of cars in the distance.
The truth in your eyes
Promises those future aspirations would be spent together,
And my innocent freckled smile
Promises you my life,
Both of us
A world full of demons and monsters linger ahead,
Persisting a harsh world
Where two young lovers don’t stand a chance.
Things were stronger;
Fate was stronger
And if it wanted you apart,
That’s how it would be.
But even then
We would still sit, dreaming,
Watching clouds float by
Absorbing our feeble wishes.
Dragging them away from our horizon
To be lost in another sky.
And as the sun set,
We would still lie swaying in the warm summer breeze,
Begging the stars to align,
Asking for a single drop of lust
To hold our enlaced hands together
