We may seem worlds apart
We may seem to be opposites
But do they not say
“Opposites attract”
Yet I know what is inside of us
We have many public faces
But hey we know our real face
It lies deep inside
A lousy isolation
Seclusion so private
That sets us apart
We have our reputations
These need to be met
High flyers
We laugh and joke
The odd poke
We do what we want
We go anywhere we want
But there is a longing need
We’ve been taken to the cleaners
We’ve been taken to be the fools
We’ve just been their tools
We’ve tried to laugh it off
Loads of scoff
Loads of shrug it off
But it damn well hurts deep inside
We’ve now become nobody’s fool
Yet there is a yearning
We work to fill the gaping hole
But yet we know why
The fun, frivolity
The Latte, Mocha, Cappuccino
But deep, deep down inside we know why
The one night stands are not in my lands
Two lives explicitly entwined
It’s the warm embraces
It’s the feeling of being needed
It’s the pure fantasy to reality needed
It’s the feeling of drowning in pure ecstasy
Love without treason
Love without a reason
Two bodies entwined
Drinking up each other’s wines
Two bodies not wanting to let go
Two bodies hungry
Two people devouring each other
Well a girl can dream can’t she?
That someday it’ll be a maybe
