Loveship (Song Lyrics)

[Verse 1]
We were not next of kin
We weren’t even friends
A relationship seemed
Impossible then

[Pre-Chorus]
But then we found, we found
What we should’ve never found
We couldn’t drown, couldn’t drown
What we should’ve never found

[Chorus]
We made a loveship
And it’s just how it sounds
We’re in a loveship
And we’re never coming down

We’re in a loveship
Sounds hip, kids want this now
We’re in a loveship
And we’re never coming down, no

We’re never coming down, no
We’re never coming down

[Verse 2]
We thought not to trust
We’d be friends and not lust
A relationship seemed
Impossible to us

[Pre-Chorus]
But then we found, we found
What we should’ve never found
We couldn’t drown, couldn’t drown
What we should’ve never found

[Chorus]
We made a loveship
And it’s just how it sounds
We’re in a loveship
And we’re never coming down

We’re in a loveship
Sounds hip, kids want this now
We’re in a loveship
And we’re never coming down

We made a loveship
And it’s just how it sounds
We’re in a loveship
And we’re never coming down

We’re in a loveship
Sounds hip, kids want this now
We’re in a loveship
And we’re never coming down, no

We’re never coming down, no
We’re never coming down

Some Poetry

I don’t know the perfume of your skin
But I bet it’s some poetry

I don’t know the flavor of your lips
But I’m sure it’s sweet and savory

I don’t know the beauty of your walk
But I’m thinking rather divinely

I don’t know the shape of your love
But I’m guessing it’s extraordinary

I do know, however, the rarity of your face
And, my darling, it’s some kind of poetry

Issues

So I have this issue and
there’s no exact medical term for it.

But when I look into your eyes
I’m transported to a place where
it always rains sunshine.

And maybe that doesn’t sound like an issue.

But when I really, really miss you
it feels like some incurable disease
akin to an elephant using my chest as a scale
or a vampire sucking my soul through a straw.

So yeah, I have this issue, I think
where I fall deeper in love
with you every nanosecond.

And maybe you have it, too?

Long-Distance Relationships

I have this puzzle
A map of the world

Which I’ve been putting
Together in private
And amorously slow

Not because I’m unsure of
The location of the pieces
But rather I wanted to rearrange the globe
So our countries aren’t
Disconnected by a sea

It took six seemingly endless months
But it was nothing, really
A few necessary adjustments

Even when it’s make-believe
I always place you next to me

Doubling Time

So maybe I won’t be your
good morning or good night
Maybe I won’t be able to
bake you that birthday cake from scratch
or massage your favorite oil
into your hair or even paint your toenails
your favorite shade of sea green.

And maybe we won’t be able to cry together
or hold each other’s hands delicately, tenderly, tightly
when it really matters—when it really counts
Because maybe love doesn’t conquer everything
and that’s the real lesson, the real truth
hidden beneath our utopian relationship
But you know what?
I still believe our love has no half-life.

This is the Liebster Blogger Award. My nomination comes by way of Rishika Kakar. Follow this great blog if you haven’t already. Always something interesting to read there.

Questions for me:

1. When and why did you start writing? Probably third grade (maybe earlier but I don’t really remember.) And just to make a few of my friends laugh.

2. If you had a chance to time travel, would you visit the past or the future, why? I’d visit the future, of course. Although the past is tempting just to really know how it all began. However, it must be the future, because I would like to believe that the love of my life will be waiting there for me.

3. If you could live anywhere in the World, where would you? Doesn’t matter, really. Once you find the right person to spend your life with you’re always home.

4. If you could be anything and anyone you wanted, who/what would you be? Just myself and a husband to her; is there any better thing to be in this world than a spouse to the right person?

5. Describe yourself in 3 words. Something worth saving.

6. Tell me about any one of your fears? Not heights, but falling from great heights.

7. Suggest a theme/idea you’d like me to write about? Magic.

8. Tell me about any one of your fears? Creatures with too many legs. “A 19th-century Tibetan poet warned his fellow Buddhists, ‘if you enjoy frightening others, you will be reborn as a centipede.’”

9. What is success to you? Happiness.

10. How would you define happiness? Some configuration of love.
