Ours

Standard

Dopey eyes and coy smile, I’d like to stay with you for a while. Fair hair and soft hands, in the sheets we made our plans.
Through mine fields and memories we ran, little did we know, our desires began to show.
I fell for you as easily as the moon falls each night, and in return you chased me as earnestly as the sun runs from sight.
 In our twisted minds we conjured up a world of our own, where bad memories were just that and we were never to be alone. Instead its this world in which we are trapped. But whilst the sun rises and the moon drifts, and the rain descends among our spliff, I feel for once as though we are safe.
Safe in our hearts and minds, as long as the road winds, we are hidden from it all.
Hidden from the taunts and past ghosts that haunt.
And all of this, this safety and warmth,  it comes from  something beyond our years.
Something within us, as deep as the ocean and as vast as the mountains are.
I guess what I’m trying to tell you, with eyes as blue as blue, and words as heavy as the earth,
what I’m trying to tell you is that we’ve created something of worth.

McDowell

Standard

He isn’t perfection,
My fallen angel,
He isn’t redemption,
Taken from the cradle.

We met by chance,
The moment undescribable,
Its not a love but false romance,
Eyes locked, hearts racing,
Words palpable.

He isn’t my idea of heaven,
My sanctuary or my dream,
But my life is what he lengthens,
Whilst he exists my blood will stream.

From Scottish ancestry,
Comes a god, a male, a king,
He descends to try and save me,
His blue eyes watering.

His story is just as sad as mine,
And we realise he is what I need,
But it’s only for a sweet time,
That I am his and he is mine.

Its toxic and true,
Brown and blue,
A fleeting moment,
Kiss, cut and bruise,
My soul mate,
He’s left me here to muse.
