Twists and turns in a foreign earth’s reign
Locked of a mystery within, I feel insane.
The length of Love is often untold
But the loss thereof I cannot hold.
The admired is ignorant but specific
And pretends not to hear my call
In the dark, my thoughts are left alone
Alone they cannot fall.
Dwelling on thoughts in the broken darkness
I seem to stumble on a step
I’ve lost my consciousness to my heart
But my heart is still unkept.
The bitter steal of love is yet another mystery
Only a soul could do without
But that too I’ve given
To you without a doubt
I’ve lost control of my heart
Something I no longer own
And although it’s nothing but empty
I’d still pick up the phone
It’s dangerous my love
It’s a sort of telekinesis
It brings you in my thoughts
And rips my heart to pieces
It’s not that I want to be hurt
But comparison that keeps me here
I know now where the darkness kept me
It was in a mysterical fear
The realization of what I wanted
Was only a stare at the sun
What I wish for most right now
Is that the mystery be undone
