So I was checking my followers and omg, I've 170+ now, which is cool as fuuuuuck and made me all 'Omg people still luff meee❤!!'. So I clicked around, stalked a bit, and came across this poem on one of the blogs. My poem below is inspired by its first two lines, so thanks for that Zoha!
I was going to call this one Molten Lava Cake, because its all fierce feelings and shizz, but its love so its all yummy and chocolaty too. However, then I decided- actually, on second thought, f it.
Ima call it Molten Lava Cake, as deep as that is.
Until anyone else can come with a slightly pretentious yet obviously cooler name in the comments? Please and thank you guys.
Molten Lava Cake
Your life beat strong beneath my lips
As I stretched out my fingertips
Trying to hold on to you, to time
To keep myself in this moment so very alive
as breaths got heavy and hands wandered
never still but then time slipped from the tips of hands
too shaky to be fully in command
And rolled off crashing to its end
Pulled apart by claws and told to bend
Our nightmare took shape, dark and black
But you stood strong and I with you
As hands held hands and vowed never to
Bend or break or ever let go
They held on as the gales ripped through
And held on as the floods threatened too
As the plagues plagued
as the minds cried
They held on with almost shaky sighs
The end was near, predictions bleak
But in the end?
Your lips beat life through mine again
Hands intertwined with you and time again
Hopeful and happy and holding on tight
Never giving up, not ever without a fight.
I've started reading Wallbanger by Alice Clayton so hopefully that'll be good.
