=================== Love they said was a music and you were its composer I remember you and all I ever knew was nothing but you I lost my heart when our eyes met and since then I became your prisoner entangled between the tentacles of your heart gasping for breath I ran for you, panting from the long distance created by you Your stares were menacing, especially when our love went dry I listened to the tunes you plucked when you play Your e-chord signified evil and the d-chord meant you were its devil One moment I was lost in your arms breathing the Shea butter that scented your skin The other moment I was drowned in my tears Fears of the unknown overcame me My world tore apart, I was all but a broken image crying to be mended. On my bed I heard you sing nostalgic melodies Melodies played on our first date, when love was pure and gold When the crickets chirped our hymns as we listened beneath the starry nights When our hands were warmers and not weapons Melodies of the nightingale that perched on our tree beneath your window And the shouts of our neighbors when we danced to our favorite songs on sundays Now, those memories are drowned in the oceans Drowned by our anger and betrayal By the gist and gossips we heeded to So, I lay in my bed hoping that the rising tide will bring us back
