Let it rain
Let our blue sky make a sacrifice
To let the violent clouds cry
Let there be no mercy
When lies surface
When love hurts.
You are the reason my soul is singed,
For you are the crimson Phoenix that lies within
The one that had risen from the ashes
Now, I am damaged
Gazing right at you
Soul darker than charcoal,
Your hands were around my throat
You said, “Darling, choke
Because you’ve got bad blood between your bones,”
You did this because, you love me.
I remain cold with this “bad blood” between my bones,
Our lifelines meshed like smoke in your lungs
I saw the devil, in the fires in your eyes
I realized that you two were intertwined
I asked why must you put snakes where my linen skin lay?
Face to face, he will remain until these blood stains wash away
I hung my head with shame
And I asked why must the serpent curse me as his lover?
Because, he loves me.
The eve of a moment worth seizing
Your aura reeked of toxicity
You need me as bad as I don’t want you
Demon limbs in my veins, their nails painted your favorite hue
Let Lucifer quiver with fear at the thought of being between your ears
Because even he has damned you
My mind was swollen with thoughts of you
And even with that, I wondered if I could know
This is for all the rotted love forgotten in the rain;
Little do they know how much we felt the pain
After the rain, he states
“Don’t melt away like the dew
Because, I love you.”
Let it pour and hit the ground like syllables in words
Let arrows of love never fall short
Let the sun show while clouds fall apart
Let the thunder grow ignorant to lightning
O how you made me worth finding.
When I fell in love, he had me enthralled
And I let him occupy every corner of my skull,
I ponder if you think about me tonight
I wonder if the mystery between your ears grabs you between your eyes,
I wish to be the cracks between your fingers
Because your touch does more than just linger
Because, I love you.
Two souls entwined into one just like candles
He grabbed my heart right out of my chest as if it had handles,
He stripped himself to show me his love
No matter how much he gives me, I will never get enough
Because, I love him.
Two feet in your heart, looking up at the valves
Two beats because one skipped when my lips touch your mouth
I am the average bird but still fly like a dove with your touch
You could cut off the pinion of my wings and I would still soar
With your heart as the wind, keeping my feet from touching the floor
It comes down to my loving for you, something new.
I hit the nail on the head when I gave him my heart
That nail holds the centerpiece on God’s wall
And that is where I will find you,
My sweet love.
After the clouds cave and the rain drains away I say,
“I believe our love is heaven sent,
I believe our love is heaven sent.”
