The Way you Stare — After Evanesence, Surrender (a golden shovel poem)

surrender

I can resist you, like there’s 
a chance — but I know, there’s no 
way out, no escaping
this hold you have on me! 
The way you stare, my 
skin burns, and I ache for your love —  
 I will always surrender!

Taste of Four A.M. — After Leslie Bricusse / Anthony Newley, Pure Imagination (a golden shovel poem)

image

The morning will surely come.
Though your long night’s filled with
darkness, and insomnia, trust me.
I know the taste of four a.m. and
how it sits dry in your mouth, how you’ll
struggle to swallow it. You’ll be
watching the clock as it tick-tocks in
time with your heartbeat. — It’s just a
cadence for your thoughts, in a world
where they run wild, like a pack of
wolves — chase the moon with pure,
primal need to defy the imagination.
