You look into me…

Me into you….

We meet there in the middle…


Need drives its own insistent desire to inception…

Embraced in this perfect moment…

Held by the enigmatic nature of will…

Unable to look away…

Locked in place….

Locked in time…

Don’t look away…

Keep me here as I memorize your soul with mine…

Let us stay suspended in wonder….

Before reality’s ocean rips us apart….

We are helpless in its wake….

Fate’s cruelty using us as pawns for pleasure….

Neither here nor there….

Our moment permanently fixed in the stars for all time…

Love…without completion…without end…

Forever captivated….

  2. “Need drives its own insistent desire to inception” …a perfect example of why I read you. That is the paint I was referring to before. 🙂


  3. Wow. The clarity of your words. It’s almost like I can see what you see. Turning it from a trilogy to a quadrilogy (had to look up to see if that was a word hehe) was inspired.
