The Storm is Over

My own name may suffer
for everything I’ve lived in past
Yet I’ve wondered if a chance
would ever come to me at last

I’ve wondered if there’s just one
who has survived the war of souls
Iron sharpens iron, my queen
and we’re making big goals

You’re testing my deepest parts
and remind of what I once dreamed
Those times that I soon discovered
that nothing was as it seemed

Where were YOU

when my soul was being shredded
when my head was cursed with rain
I was looking for you, my souls bride
for hopes of you I fought through the pain

then, all of a sudden

you and your shoulder were right there
and I was always offering mine
Now we find ourselves standing here
and we’re more than friends this time

Where are WE?

We’re the artist souls
in a world that doesn’t rhyme, except
in the moments we share together
where I’m declaring that you are mine

like no other before

indulging in you, my one and only
a merge never up for debate
Reaching the summits constantly
as we’re living the love we make

in our own reign

the storm is over, thunder settled, lightning struck
but what about the aftermath in glaring eyes
Staring with awe, into the expanse
we’ve found where our horizon lies

Flamme

Flamme by Scott Mitchell


Ensemble

Sonatas, be surely defined
when closed lush lips, to his soul
whisper the sweetest wine

Horizons, be known to endure
in low light when the moon ignites
as he consumes what once was yours

Stars, grasped as a tigers mane
stilettos point to the sky
in sharp reciting of his name

Entre los pétalos

Entre los pétalos

Disculpa mi mirada
Pequeña flor de bronce
La curiosidad embriaga
Por como te mostrarás
Floreciente
Y el brillo del rocío matinal

~

Le ruego al sol
Aparece ahora y revela
El objeto de mi deseo

~

Siente mi aliento, pequeña flor
Como unos labios suavemente exploran
Y remplazan mis pasiones
Con tu dulce aroma

~

Mi ambición es mejorar
Y mantener la esmeralda con cuidados
No temas al abrazo
Y saborea el néctar que compartes

In English:

Between the Petals

Excuse my stare,
little flower of bronze
Curiosity intoxicates
for how you will appear
in full bloom
and a glaze of morning dew

I plead with the sun,
rise now and reveal
the entity of my desire

Feel my breath, little flower
as lips softly explore
and replace my passions
with your sweet aroma

My ambition is to mend
and hold the emerald with care
Do not fear as I embrace
and taste the nectar you share

Dare we?

Our backs pressed together yet so far apart
both staring at the stars
not making a sound

Dare we……..forget the past and make a start
we’ll be face to face
we’ll both turn around
~
If I……..were to look into those big brown eyes
and ask you to be mine,
would you take my hand?

If you……..were to walk with me alone tonight
you would see all I need,
two sets of footprints in the sand
~
The limits we can take this is so out of sight
the drum in my chest beats
and I know you can feel

If I……..stare too hard or hold you tight
I’m not trying to hurt you
I just want to be sure you’re real
~
If we……..step into an unknown sea
I can only promise one thing
you’ll always be all I need

I’m euphoric……..to have you with me
Before tonight,
you were only a dream
~
Any moment that I take my eyes off you
it’s only to see the path ahead
so I can help you through

You……..will never need to ask for truth
It’s an honorable sacrifice
to give all of me to you
~
Would you……..sail away tonight with me
We’ll throw uncertainty to the breeze
Dare we?
