The Only Two People In The World
Imagine this, my sweet and most beloved:
Imagine a world that was erased of all humanity,
But you and I were the only creatures left;
That would be a lifetime of happiness and insanity.
We'd have all things to ourselves,
This time without a single rule or regulation.
We'd express our love for each other without judgement,
And our freedom would be of utmost fascination.
It would be a much happier world for both of us.
It would be like the movie ‘I am Legend',
But without the zombies and the death of a dog;
Only the pure fact that our love could never end.
A world like this would be an absolute Godsend.
Wouldn't you agree, my prettiest friend?
We would date without ever having to go home,
I'd eventually come to suffer from love syndrome.
There would be no disruptions like phone-calls,
And no mood-killing sights such as pub brawls.
I'd never leave your sight - Ever -
I'd never want to let go of your hands.
You'd be the only person left for me,
My only hope as long as the remainder of Man stands.
Through all of the silent and empty roads,
You and I would waltz until our brains have swirled.
It would be the best thing to NEVER happen, Baby,
You and I being the only two people in the world.
