Muted Shades

Dance with me lover, in the rain
Make me feel young again
Hold me under clouds of gray
Lets love the rainy day away

He won’t be home until very late
Lets tiptoe through the forbidden gate
Taste the passion sweet as tears
Dance with me despite your fears

Roll on loud thunder, the lightning is bright
My soul is restless on this dark night
I seek to find what will bring me peace
I somehow must find a sense of release

The moon is hidden, the stars the same
Angels tears fall in the form of rain
I scream and cry into the abyss
Nothing should feel as lonely as this

I stumble blind in the storms peak
Afraid to find what I must seek
Then suddenly I feel you there
Flash of lightning, I see your stare

Eyes as cold as your heart must be
Devoid of all sensitivity
No longer bright as a summers day
My lie has taken your light away

The thunder harsh, and you are gone
I know you finally have moved on
How long did you stand in the rain?
How deeply did you feel the pain?

I turn to go back to waiting arms
Still seduced by all his charms
The lightning cracks, I surrender my will
For his touch gives me a thrill

I know not why I gave in
To be with him in this sin
Maybe the storm made me go astray
Maybe we were meant to end this way

The thunder rolls, the lightning is bright
You were not supposed to return tonight
Flash of light, I saw you there
Death cold look, a lovers glare

Dance with me lover, I lost my heart
Help me see why we must part
The storm is passing, where’d you go
How did I ever get so low?

The dance is over, the storm did pass
My heart is shaded like frosted glass
I gambled and lost because I gave in
You were my passion, he my sin

Goodbye gray skies, hello blue
I somehow thought you already knew
And now I cry my tears without sound
As puddles dirty the outside ground

Loved and lost for loving too many
Now it seems I haven’t any
Cry your tears I’ll cry mine too
Such muted shades of gray to blue.

Let my words fall first upon deaf ears before a closed mind...

Excellent piece, it really deserves to be moved up. Sorry I missed this the first time around azblond.

Thanx for your help on what was troubling me about it, I made the minor changes...still...Oh well. Thanx again for the help Dream.

For sometimes when the Darkness falls, we must surrender, take what is ours, and give what we can, and always remember love is somewhere waiting...
