Infinity

Oh your face how it brings me joy.
Your lips taste so sweet.
Your fears bitter in stride.
But here I am afraid to let you go,
Down on my knees, give me your hand,
Let’s live this life side by side.
I have no box, for love should not be contained.
I have no ring, for we said no names.
Yet here I am, at your mercy, your fame.
But here in my hand I have this Duofold,
Your hand in mine forever to hold.
Running backward through time I replay that night.
Where we talked of the world and our hopes, oh we talked.
And I remember that dream you played out in your head:
Infinity is the only thing that never ends.

Infinity you said.

As I draw this eight, sideways for fate,
I know this contract is more than skin deep.
I will my life, in duty to you, and in eternal sleep.
When I close my eyes its you I see this life sentence in the prison, your bed.
Infinity is the only thing that never ends.

Infinity you said.
