The Lovers

by Rachel Martinez

All of my wasted love
I can rebuild in you
The story we only dreamed of
Can only be woken by you

Oceans swarming to drown us
All of their coveting eyes
Legions of sirens before us
They cry out for our demise

Everything lost is rebuilt once more
Continents click into place
Life without you has no core
Wishing you were mine to embrace

Now hold onto me and descend
Into the darkness of our chosen end
