Fire in my eyes, stars in the Skies
The fault in our Stars,
make way for our hours.
By Colors I love,
So pure as a whites’ white
So wild, a Volcanic eruption,
In the thrills and throws of needing a man,
So tamed as Catherine the Shrews’.
Feeling like the rage of Ashõkas’ anger,
In innocence I loved,
Knowing not what brings the hour
Knowing I would slip, minding not what it brings
I slipped, blame me not
For these feelings like lubricated lips dancing, hugging over and over.
I believe that life is a price,
Because you live, doesn’t mean you alive,
It gets funny when you laugh-cry,
For these are the moments Pure.
I lied! Even though I said I didn’t love you,
I lied! To keep my heart at peace
You were my Amõr and I your Aûròra,
You were my safety zone, somewhere I craved for
Yet felt like an Island of my own, bleeding
I regret not this feeling,
For its memories make me an Oliver Twist
I would travel back in time to the first Chapter with you,
Only if the clock ticks back to the time we said in our hearts,
Erasing the story that led to today.
