by the Lovelorns, the fire beneath the ice.
( a composition from the original works of Timbuktu97, Gold & Sugar)
Sometimes the deepest love does not exist in the tones of our voices: how soft, deep or sincere they sound ; the expression on our faces, the widths of our smiles; neither in the intention of our actions but kept deep in the core of our hearts, a forbidden treasure, so that it’s safe from the malice of this world.
The way I feel about you,
It just don’t change overnight.
Even long after this world becomes ugly to my soul,
Believe me this is forever.
We’re racing down a concrete jungle,
Chasing desires of our hearts.
My heart on yours.
Entangled under the covers.
Risking it all to have each other.
✴ ✴ ✴
I know there’s nothing in me you’ll ever miss,
And no matter how hard I try to please,
My place ain’t where your heart is,
So I try to let these feels rest in peace,
Give you some space,
Coz I would die to see you in a mess,
Six feet under with tears on your face.
✴ ✴ ✴
Fool me once, Fool me twice,
Am a sucker for your love.
Diving into the ocean headfirst,
Let the sharks in your lies devour me,
Let the stretch of your wicked smile blind me from the truth,
As I lay breathless on the sea bed,
Awaiting a change of heart,
Praying some day it will beat for me.
As I stand still on this ground,
Waiting for you to take me home,
To my dreams, the bed of my fantasies.
Home with you, mine.
✴ ✴ ✴
Don’t take off your glasses,
I might roast in the light of your eyes.
My mind might stop,
Let the heart run its turn.
I might lose my grip on reality,
Drown in my fantasy,
Begging not to be saved.
I might lose my manners,
Unveil the wild side,
Like a wolf in the full moon.
I might forget my pride,
Fall down to your knees,
Savouring every drop of you.
I might forget I’ve had trouble in my life,
When you smile there like an angel.
My heart leaps again.
✴ ✴ ✴
They say I’m jumping from a frying pan,
They don’t know I’m addicted to your fire.
Still battling with my addiction,
If you’re a bad habit I’m diving right into the mud.
You ain’t perfect, no one neither,
We just look too good together.
✴ ✴ ✴
People go, memories stay,
And I saw you the other day,
You got me feeling some type of way,
Wishing your ghost could go away,
My heart is still in the service bay.
I’m heading down the brae,
Pretending that everything is okay,
I don’t mean to sound like the victim in the play,
Love has a price, maybe this is the way I’m to pay,
Packaging all this pain,
Promising to never fall in love again,
Struggling to remain sane,
Cut my thoughts off your chain,
All the love I gave you was in vain.
You left me plain,
Alone in the rain, shivering in the cold,
Watching your person unfold,
Your true colors in bold,
I thought you had a heart of gold,
Too bad it was already sold.
✴ ✴ ✴
✴ ✴ ✴
My life is a heartbroken story,
My heart don’t even beat.
I’ve fallen in love before,
It’s not worth the thud.
The pain is like a woodpecker,
Drilling through my stem,
Slowly crumbling my person,
Turning my mind inside out.
Believe me a kiss don’t mean a thing to them.
Their souls are dry,
You won’t be the last to walk into that wasteland.
Love is like dust on their roof,
When the rain comes adios.
Adios mí amor,
It was nice meeting you.
✴ ✴ ✴
I know you can see through my eyes,
It’s all you in there.
You know how much I want to kiss you,
I want to live in your heart and die in there.
I’ve made very bad decisions in my life,
You’re none of them i swear.
This is the red and blue,
My love is true,
Paint me in your colors.
✴ ✴ ✴
Cut the lies, dry your tears, the door is behind you,
I’m breaking these ties, you can keep your promises, I wish I knew,
I guess I wasn’t worth the prize, I’m stuck with these questions, never thought you’d be the same too
✴ ✴ ✴
My heart has learned to beat twice on that thought,
Fool me twice shame on you.
I journey beyond the eyes,
I can see through the lie,
Broken hearts have a sweeter revenge on love.
You shot me down and left me out in the cold,
Like I was just one for the road,
What happened to “us against the world” ?
Never thought I’d get my mind of your shadow,
Coz that’s what you are, it just took too long to know,
Now I’m wishing I had this before,
You should see her eyes glow,
Cute little face just like yours but better,
Because her smile is tender,
She doesn’t fake it either,
Her touch like a feather.
My heart has learnt to beat twice on that thought,
All the pain is gone,
I have my revenge on love.
I’m not writing this to you because I’m good in poetry,
It’s the things you do to me,
You’re where my heart needs to be.
When the words come to me,
It’s all you that I can see,
I want to soak you in my ink.
