Constant (By Black Angel)

CONSTANT

The steady lectures

the constant badgering

the continual  bickering,

is it worth the fight

to continue on with the battle of love?

The perpetual arguments

the stagnant nature of our aftermath,

is it worth the fight

to continue on with our battle of love?

The uniform of her hair

swishing back and forth,

the nonstop pointing and blame,

is it worth the fight

to continue on with our battle of love?

The unwavering battle of love,

the monotonous river flowing down the way.

The incessant fussing and hollering,

is it worth the fight

to continue on with our battle of love?

Frozen in Time

FROZEN IN TIME

I kiss your lips in a

Yearning kind of way.

Passionate red candles burn a scent of love

Into the air.

Double, triple times my heart beats.

It skips a beat when my lips meet yours.

Your lips, moist as they

Touch mine.

A kiss of passion, enthrallment.

Frozen forever, my heart stands still.

For however long we kiss,

A second, a minute, an hour,

A day, a week, a month,

Or a year, my heart will hold it’s breath,

As will I to cherish the moment.
