You are the deepest mystery,
The one I just can't seem to figure out
Will you spend some more time with me?
Perhaps I haven't gotten underneath your skin
Like your gaze has seemed to do to mine.
Are you able to see through flesh, muscle and bone
To see my heart beat fast for you?
Maybe this is why you watch me so closely
Just as closely as I watch you.
They say not to tempt this Darkness
But I'm not afraid of the dark.
So wrap me in your starless night,
We can play hide and seek for awhile longer.
Hide as long as you'd like in your sheets
For I have fun in seeking out the answer
To the mystery of how you came to be.
Hold me close to you, my Dark lover
With your hard body above me
And your soft flesh against my hands
Promise me forever and eternity, my dear
Whisper words that only shadows hear.
Forget about the fast approaching dawn
Let's pretend that the sun may never rise.
Let me wrap my arms around your neck.
With a sweet surrendering kiss,
May I breathe into you the light I possess?
Maybe then you will no longer fear
The love I try to warm you with.
Perhaps only then may I solve the mystery
Of how the cold claimed your heart,
How your spirit hid away within you
And how the shadows enveloped your soul.
