Our lips meet at the horizon
Fireworks under the skin
Ruptures emit beauty
From the cracked, horrible spaces
Where only pain used to bloom
Where we lurked and hid for centuries
All pretense and hiding stops now
When your lips touch mine
And I die in your embrace
And I come back to life in your kiss
Because we are fire
Only to the lies we are living
To the ways we haven't be living up to who we really are
Lips infecting bodies with the truth
Drips like ecstasy
And it hurts too
Thunderbolts to our stagnancy---
We have to wake up.
And so we do.
And I love you
And you love me
The sky reaches down swiftly to love the green earth
The earth reaches up boldly to meet the watery, pastel sky
And our lips meet at the horizon
Tears drip from knowing so hard
You are not mine
But you are for me
And I am for you.
We can't stop knowing it.
It's a chapter we opened long ago
And it can't be closed.
And it's time to wake up.
It's time to wake up.
The horizon looks calm,
But it's fire
And we have to wake up now.
