I want to laugh with you at a random stranger,
Hold you close when in danger.
Feel the warmth surround you,
I feel found when you are around, too.
Look at me, look at us, Close your eyes if you must,
The only glory to this story is the product of two heart's rust,
The concept of two afraid to start a game of who is madder
Fulfill me now, this will be how I mend a soul in tatters,
Like pure gold, love only matters if you find someone who buys it.
How can my horrid mark reveal a stark emotion? I still will try it.
Only to have it happen once again, lose a lover, beg for a friend,
It would seem that men make means to find swiftly a forgotten end.
But joy wipes clean the sorrow and lets laughing last 'til 'morrow,
Forget the pain, hold close these stains, remind me to return what has been borrowed.
Your joy is so lovely, like bubble bathing in the summer time,
Soaking soft silky skin, to not hold you is an utter crime.
To mutter stuttered rhyme is to prove my heart is growing that much weaker,
Show me Chemistry so strong, love pouring straight out of the beaker.
I possess no hydroxide to intoxicate you with passion,
The last to love me burned me alive with acid in a poison fashion.
Years passed since the day he pulled away and cast my heart aside,
It accepts defeat, doesn't skip a beat, when looked upon through my eye.
Tear ducts swollen with the tears not falling, for I refuse to cry,
I feel no pain and became untamed the day he said, "Goodbye.
Those sweet senseless words from your lips must be a lie,
And if I kissed it, I'd be masochistic, and surely I would die.
Hold me now and my eyes will drain, my blood will run so cold,
Whisper it in my ear but I hear not what I am told.
Yet when I read your words, my whole being began to quiver,
While no one else, but yourself, has been able to produce a shiver.
My defenses cracked and tumbled but how you managed, I'll never know,
Excuse the cliché when I say, you might've had me at, "Hello."
I want to laugh by your side,
In your arms I will hide,
Feel the warmth surround me,
More found, I could never be.
