Us, From The Realization Til Now
Meeting.
Soaked souls in wine.
Dizzy, tingling hearts fall behind.
Our moments trump all else, rebuilds lost time.
Ignite, our connection is flint.
We dance 'til dawn.
Last breathe....

Guarded a man with scars
Kept him in lonely seclusion
The public made him a brutal nightmare
Took a matrimony with shadows
Evolved into a myth
Story of hate
A mask
