Loving you is having
My head to the sky
And making shapes in the
Clouds that come floating by.
And still, with feet placed firmly
On hard rooted ground, you’ve got
My mind up here spinning around.
When the storm comes rolling in
I know you won’t be far behind,
Ready to dazzle in a daily explosion
That tears apart thunderous greys
To reveal pastel galaxy before my eyes.
On the bright side of the moon we reside,
Illuminated by stars a bright blue
And planets of purple & pink hues.
And I swear I cried colour
When we kissed that night
Under early morning light.
Even long after you leave
I’m warping the hills and the trees
Into a technicolour fantasy –
The closest I’ll ever come to an ecstasy high.
