This attraction; so mutual, so deranged.
Only comes with the pouring of wine,
The slip of a hand, the touch of lips,
The feeling of a beating heart close to your own,
The feeling of being complete.
Slurred words utter the one truth,
That steady ones never will,
And drunken hands explore,
Where sober ones would never dare roam.
Another hit, one more shot,
Simple kisses lead to lust,
And lust finds its way to love,
Laying together, the most dangerous yet,
Unspoken feelings tangled in intertwined fingers,
The dense cloud of amour drifting between locked eyes.
Heavy eyelids start to close,
Arms wrapped around each other,
The ghost of sleep closes in around you,
And casts its hateful spell,
Erasing precious memories,
And pushing away unsaid words,
The sun comes up sending down its killing rays,
Sleepy eyes open, and blushes creep onto faces,
Mumbled words, with hidden loving glances,
Getting out of bed, both hearts broken,
One last hung-over kiss,
Until the cork is popped again.
