Alone in the dark, you found me.
You said you were waiting for me,
Or someone like me.
Alone in the dark, I found you.
You walked out of my dreams.
And sat at the corner table in the back.
You looked so lonely, but you weren’t alone.
Music kept you company,
Lady Sennheiser singing in your ears.
Turning Kind of Blue
In Bliss from Visions of Johanna
I recognized you;
You recognized me.
Our fates were meant to collide.
The scent of rain infused the air.
On a wet sidewalk, glimmering under streetlamps,
We shared a kiss that stopped time.
We fucked on the sofa,
Made love on the floor,
And merged our souls beneath the stars.
You were my soul’s delight,
My heart’s desire,
My mind’s welcome torment.
Our passion unrivaled,
We fused into one.
The universe looked on in awe.
But it wasn’t enough.
I couldn’t compete
With the life you already had.
Our demons clashed,
Our souls in torment;
We wept more than we laughed.
But I can still hear your words in my ear.
They keep me warm at night.
I’ll meet you, my dear; I’ll meet you again.
In Another Life.
