It's not enough (revised)
That's what I asked for,
thought it seemed a reasonable request
and you seemed to aquiesce to what I had to suggest.
We both seemed set to go at my behest,
no more, no less - seemed for the best and yet...
I dont think this will be enough,
because although we both act tough,
pretend that we don't worry much,
make jokes and light when in the rough,
theres more than meets the eye with us.
Below the surface of silliness,
lies a need to satisfy the lust to connect,
experience the reverberation of our hearts that beat together,
walk a rythm that strikes our feet together.
A deep craving just to be together - Forever.
You could place your hands upon my hips,
gently kiss my lips, experience a brief moment of bliss.
For a short pause, an interlude in time,
you'd be mine and nothing would be amiss.
We'd be encircled in a rainbow bubble,
while around us all the details, the people -
would dissapate, evaporate,
the earth would seem to fade to grey.
We'd become the only colour,
the only thing that's real
in a world of shadows and monotonous shades.
A flash of orange and blue and scarlet,
bold strokes painted on a backdrop of gloomy pain.
If I could only stop time.
If I could pause and capture the memory;
bottle it, keep it, relive it over again,
I think things would be ok
and we could both get on with our lives
and just be fine.
That's what I asked for it's true,
but it's not enough now -
because I need all of you.
