He lies there waiting for my return,
As I walk out the door my ache for him starts to burn.
Resigned to his embrace, filling my head full of lies,
I touch his face and look deep into his eyes.
His cold hand brings a pain from the start and pulls me in until everything goes dark.
There is a constant need that never ceases, distorting my world in agitated ferment.
Now that I'm back in his arms, clutching at a dream,
My deceptive words, again, are never quite what they seem.
He sits tainting every thought that I make,
His presence is more than I can bear to take.
I try to think of everything but the song he once sang,
But he always returned, no matter how far I ran.
As our lives entwined, we fell into the red sea,
And I forever try to escape the hold he now has upon me.
We both want to leave but we both need to stay,
I cannot be without him even for a day.
He purges all the life that is left in my soul,
Yet brings me such calm when my heart has a hole.
It never pains me any more, a sweet familiar ache,
That reminds me life is a passion I've yet to create.
He is a poison that creeps slowly, then consumes your life whole,
Leaving you breathless in the sky, taking heaven’s toll.
He falls from the past into the mess that we created,
A void of deep yearning that is never sated,
He eternally looks for something hidden in my eyes;
A carnal need for each other that we cannot disguise.
