we were lovers

we were made from the same pot of gold bathed in the pool of silence, we learned from each other's woes i was like the pupil and u was the iris, entwined in time no one could divide us like yin and yang we rested at each others hand consecrated by the goddess of love at the sway of her wand we painted the facade of our bond with togetherness you was the elixir that cured my emptiness we were the sun and the moon seekers of lost stars, Antony and Cleopatra's doom we were like fireflies at sundown diamonds and rubies in abundance we were lovers then the man with a black heart came the separator of mother and child, brother and sister, Theseus and Ariadne the reverse of life, he's pleasure was pain he put tears in my eyes and blood in your spine he took away your light and darkness was mine replaced our flowers with thorns, annihilated our bond emptiness reborn, in stillness i mourned for where light lingers, darkness hovers just when love decides, hate conspires we were the sun and the moon seekers of lost stars, Antony and Cleopatra's doom we were like fireflies at sundown diamonds and rubies in abundance we were lovers i couldn't stand the sting, knowing you was not there so i stained my mothers knife, took my worthless life traveled through a thousand light years hoping to see you here at the birth place of love, Aphrodite's bosom where love fills the air, like a wild explosion so hold me, hold me, make this moment worth a while now that am here, treat me to a dance the feeling you give me is stronger than life our love is eternal, forever will pass we were the sun and the moon seekers of lost stars, Antony and Cleopatra's doom we were like fireflies at sundown diamonds and rubies in abundance we were lovers
