You say that love like ours is eternal


You say that love
like ours is eternal
and I wonder how
to let moments stand still,
as if they never can pass on.

You embrace me with fire in every kiss,
with a look in your eyes
that does magical things to me.

You tell me that now
for the first time
you know that you are living
and I feel the pulse beat in your breast
under my fingers
while your nipple gets hard

and your bright blue eyes
are exceptionally beautiful
while you throw your blonde locks
with a movement
back over your shoulder.

When you walk away,
leaving a picture for my eyes,
your perfume still stays with me
and I know how happy I really am

but a few hours later
your are forever gone
and the decision
has been taken by destiny for you
and the angel of death
keeps avoiding me.
