Young lust Simmers deeper than a gigantic tidal wave The vivacious fusion of the two bodies Begins to peak into the uppermost realm of infatuation As they cover each other with outer warmth
I wrote a letter, put it in a bottle
You sit there quiet as can be You scroll through your phone or maybe searching for a tweet But when you look up and I look into your eyes I see no fun But your smile radiates more than the sun

So this is how we miss Losing each other in each kiss My dear isn’t it plain That we were meant to act another way I will keep you close But I only need the words to know you

Distance is what keeps us apart The thought pushes through my head till its clear Like a busy commuter on a New York street And though I’m still uncertain of your heart I pray tomorrow you’ll be near
