Elemental Love
Author: Eryemil


Tears that were never meant for me,
Let them bathe my broken body,
Let them heal my hopes and wash away the moments,
That safe in a place that only his tears can reach,
Cause themselves the pain,
>From which I try to hide them.

His long denied Breath
Let it caress away,
The dullness in my hair,
Which with a life that's not of it's own,
Will unconsciously sway,
With the beat of my hidden sorrow.

I watch the bitter Earth defile my lips,
And mix with blood from my wounded heart,
It's metallic taste will give me strength
To cry out his name just one more time.

The Fire in his eyes slowly burns,
The empty shell that long ago held my hopeless dreams,
I do prefer an unhurried death,
So even as my vessel dies,
My mind can feed off the life that his gaze holds.
