You set my heart aflutter Whenever you pen These words of love Showing your innate desire. Your mere presence Sets me on fire But I ain’t gonna douse Myself in ice nor in water. So sear me with the touch Of your capable fingers, I’m not gonna turn into cinders. But if I did, watch my rebirth As a Phoenix I’ll emerge.

I never once thought That freeing my time to talk with you At night was a responsibility. For me, every second spent with you Feels like a luxury. It’s like visiting the spa to have the masseuse Massage the sore muscles on my back. Honey, when I talk to you You always hit the right spot.

According to studies, Humans have a strong scarcity bias. Unconsciously, we assume that things That are precious are scarce And things that are inferior are plenteous. But this is where I deviate, hon. For no matter how long We spent with each other, Whether too little or too much; My longing for you never subsides. It defies this very logic every time. I missed hearing your soothing voice The other night and all I want Is to be by your side.

As I trekked The lonely valley of life Amongst a crowd full Of faceless strangers, I felt cold and hollow within; Perpetually craving For someone’s warmth To prove that I’m still One with the living, I waited for the notable Soul that I’ve been yearning. One day our paths Crossed thru divine luck, You, a person belonging From a different dimension, But of the same flock Suddenly grabbed my hand. You kept it warm And kissed my woes goodbye. Oh, such a long wait it was But thank you For bringing me back to life. You rekindled my desires And now you solely own my heart.

If we lived in the world Of Ice and Fire You’ll be my Targaryen And I your Stark. With your High Valyrian command, Dracarys – Dragonfire; Balerion unleashed his fire And melted the frost That guards my frigid heart, Awakening my inner desires. In the process you vanquished The White Walkers and the Wights, Keeping me safe throughout The incoming long winter nights. I can only marvel At your prominence from afar, My valiant King As I saw you with your Mighty dragon, Balerion Dancing in the sky whilst leaving.

Miles apart we art, Mine own loveth But ev’ry moment I spendeth with thee Wast treasured in mine own young heart Yond nay bejewel’d items can surmount. Mine own image of thee Wast p’rpetually sear’d Into mine own sagacious mem’ry. So yond at which hour We meeteth finally I would not passeth Thee by unknowingly.

You were my thunder And I’m your lightning. Your stentorian voice Serenades me each night As I strike you with my love, Can you feel the tingle, the warmth? We’ll brew a storm tonight For we rule the skies. Let the world marvel at our love When our souls collide As tears of joy fall from the skies To kiss the parched ground.
Our relationship is like A boiling pot of stew. It gets better with time, It even taste better with A splash of red wine. We have to use the right wine, And make sure the temperature Is even all the time. Else our stew will end up bitter, astringent – That’s not how we want our relationship.
I imagine your arms Were wrapped around me Like a blanket When I find myself missing you In the dead of the night. As I closed my eyes last night, All I can do is release a deep sigh And pretend we weren’t miles apart. At least I’ve heard your voice Even for a short interval last night. It’s enough to melt my heart And erase the cobwebs In my weary mind.
