Unrequited Moon

Your eyes cloak yearning and lust
Your dreams have all began to rust
Anything that you kiss turns to dust
If that doesn't kill them the silence must

If I was a fire you would be my oxygen
And your once silent heart talks again
Whispering for me to stay near
(Or that’s just what I want to hear)

You’re the masterpiece untold of a mystery that won’t unfold
You suffer a never-satisfied syndrome
And you’re an orphan to love that needs a home
You’re in a word cellar that needs a story teller

You’re a lock that needs a key, and a bird that needs a tree
You’re the night that needs a day, and a picture that won’t stay
You’re the sparkling treasure, pursued through the rotten moor
And you've tossed your old boyfriends in a forgotten drawer
Only to take them back out on snowy nights
To keep you warm under your golden lights

Deep in the sea you've said to be
And I see in the sea what mirrors me
Your lunar heart answers only to the ocean
Your gravitational pull sets me in motion
Your drifting moon thrusts me with it’s rays
And I swim further into your desirous waves

Sinking my every shuttle and ship too soon
Drowning in the ocean, to be with the moon
