Lost Shadow

Will He – by Joji (optional musical accompaniment)

Penumbral love lost

The light steers you away

So bright and I lose sight

Another day

And I’ve lost you again

Regrettably never will I find another spot under the sun

Dark shadow of mine

We try to chase you together

In the dark between buildings

I’m blind but the trill of your saliva

Warm and unmistakable

Now tingling with the cold of your breath

My ear is deafened in the ecstacy, this bond unbreakable

I know you too well sweet darkness

I hide here in your swell

My secrets and fears consoled in you

Quietly all is well

We whisper words for no one else to hear

Savory intricacies of our lives and passions

The taste of your lips on the tip of my tongue

In distasteful fashion the noises you make

They chill my spine and raise my hairs

I stand straight to attention as all else

The way you stare up towards me

As you steal every ounce of air

Beckoning me down toward the fissure

I breathe you in

As I slumber deeply within you

The abyss where I would spend eternity

A time of infinity to be blind

Would still not be enough with you as mine

I'm just here. Until I'm not.
