The weather

We change every day like the weather
Whether or not we are together
Stormy days and cloud cover
Rain on dreams of forever
And it strikes me like thunder
When I feel like I’m let go of our tether
But today it’s sunny
And I just want to hover
Together we’re birds
You make me float with your feathers
A spirit in her own little world
An earth we could never keep forever
But in this moment we’re covalent
Silent bonds that could never be severed
Blindfolded and bound by the leather
As I find you letting go of covers
Rain on me like the heat of summers
When you shower me in love
And we move to a beat like drummers
Is it bad that I want to remember
The bliss of summer to which we surrendered
When we met deep inside and came together

Face to face
The shortest distance between lovers

Swallowed up my kisses and the taste lingers
Trace fingers as I go down south for winter
Face you as your body shivers
Arrow aimed at your chest
Entering hard and leaving your body in quivers
Pieces in time
Baby we are just slivers
Promises that swim up river
Grow and then deliver
Moments of whats good in life
Knowing that even those wither

See the weather changes every day
But what did I ever give her?
Hopefully the message that it was okay to be loved
So when I die no one could ask ‘did he ever live her’
