You wanna go away? Your crescent smile would say…
You know I do! My eyes want to reply…
But my brown gaze goes down. I talk to the ground…
Look at me. You command me softly...
My eyes remain in place. I want to look at your face…
Haven’t you paid enough dues? Your words muse…
They only want me to be safe! I yell for their sake…
They kept you in chains! Your smiling lips don’t refrain…
They care! I know he is not aware…
It’s you they will destroy. Gone is your aggravating joy…
I stay quiet. I know you are right despite it...
They created this girl. My head is in a whirl…
You lift my chin. You lean in…
A kiss is planted on my lips. Done away is my tenuous grip…
You know I’m right. Your letters put me in a fright…
I know you’re right. My letters put me in a fight…
Come away with me. You look into my soul intently…
You have nothing left here. I have everything to fear…
Let go. God I wish you could know…
I can’t just leave! How I want you to believe…
Then you can live without my face? My heart begins to race…
Never say goodbye. My love, know I would die…
I pull your mouth to mine. We freeze another moment in time…
Come away with me. You have nothing left to repeat…
My choice is for what you wait. Mother Father don’t be full of hate…
Yes. My world becomes more of a mess…
You give a shout of victory. My lips curl up in spite of me…
You grab my hand. My bravery slowly expands…
The world explodes open in our eyes. Our love dances towards the sky…
So this is what I’ve always been after. My lips release tinkling laughter…
So this is the battle of good and bad. And then I thought I would be sad…
Open is the universe. We have many events to rehearse...
This is our lives. This is releasing what has always been locked...away...inside...
This is me. This is becoming free.
