I tried
but I can’t seem to
find a way to deny
that the intensity of your eyes
   ignites my senses to perfection
that in the middle of
   all nights
   our thoughts meet along
   the highway of thoughts
   on a head-on collision
that my voice fits yours
   the way confessions
   seek clarity
   for a restless soul
   who pins its final hopes
   on unapologetic honesty

If I put my life on the line
   would you give me
   a fighting chance
   for your love?
If I let you decode
   the fortress of my reason
   would you let your
   last defense
   fall away
   at my touch?

If there’s a chance
   our hearts would
   stop beating tomorrow
   would you jump into the fire
   with me today?
