Around Midnight

When you’re next to me around midnight,

a fool’s ecstasy in the moonlight.

Nothing really matters in my reality,

except that I belong to you and you belong to me.

 

A fool’s ecstasy in the moonlight,

I can’t wait to be in your arms so tight.

Now that I belong to you and you belong to me,

we can’t deny our circumstances, it’s our destiny.

 

I can’t wait to be in your arms so tight.

How my heart has wings when you’re in my sight.

We can’t deny our circumstances, it’s our destiny:

two star-crossed lovers in a dance for immortality.

 

How my heart has wings when you’re in my sight.

Love your kisses bring sends my soul in flight.

Two star-crossed lovers in a dance for immortality;

as long as there’s a universe, there’ll always be a “we.”

 

Love your kisses bring sends my soul in flight,

a fool’s ecstasy in the moonlight.

As long as there’s a universe, there’ll always be a “we,”

when you’re next to me, around midnight.

 

 

Perpetual Motion

Like endless waves upon the sea,

my thoughts are in perpetual motion

seeking out the depths of me

in caverns of a bottomless ocean,

mysterious and full of notions.

 

If kisses start a broken heart,

then action begets motivation.

Two star-crossed lovers cannot part,

attraction of the constellations.

Synergy made of recreation.

 

The wheat, the chaff and the weevil

are a juggle and desensitize;

the struggle between good and evil

turns a view from hypnotic surprise

to a vision that is tenured and wise.

 

With gift of life comes curse of death.

We nurse existential needs to the hearse

and celebrate a life’s last breath.

Perpetual motion for better or worse,

a microcosm of the universe.
