Your skin on mine
Hold me like the mortals do
Sing me a lullaby
Darling,all I have is you.

Your hand in my hair
Your lips upon mine,
Even gods have a soul,
And I'm just one of them nine.

I'll dance my prayer,love.
Go forward and never turn
All this time,I thought,
This city will burn.

Who knew his arrow would break?
No one asked can gods cry.
His tears will drown us,
Give me your love,teach me to fly.

Cupid's tears touched my skin.
It made a red scar.
His wings are almost gone.
Did he,too,lose the one he loved?

I wanted to help
But you held me there
Don't become a mortal,
It's too great a burden to bear.

The waves came,
And you kissed me,Atlantis drowned.
You had your arms around me,pulling me close.
And we watch it disappear,up,from that cloud.
“Things base and vile, holding no quantity, love can transpose to form and dignity. Love looks not with the eye, but with the mind, and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.”
-William Shakespeare

:clap: I'm speechless. Beautifully written - Kinda reminds me of the Trivium song's lyrics for "This world can't tear us apart".

Oh thanks...I am gonna check that song out now :D

... In case you don't wind up liking it, don't blame me. lol.

Though, to be fair, another song which I know of might be feasible to your fancy. Try "In the Mood for Love theme", you'll probably like that.

a quick editorial note after i say this ... the work is lovely.

Stanza four line one "Who knew his arrow would brake?" I believe you meant to write "break"
