Effect on Me

There’s two sides to me

Sometimes three

The one that everyone knows

Is the protector of the other

The one who loves hard 

Too much

Because the world doesn’t go easy

On hopeless romantics 

So I save him for when he’s needed

Right now

There’s nothing to protect him

From the love he feels

Because even the protector 

Is in love with her

And she’s gone

Melody

She’s like a soft melody
The kind that embraces you
Wherever you go, chases you
Sweet as sugar cane
Slowly flowing through you
Softly rumbling the tympanic
I can feel her beautiful chorus
Taking over my soul
Every moment I spend with her
I take the time to listen to each note
Reverberating over and over
Her sound never gets old
I’m pulled in by the tranquility
How much closer can I get?
Never quite done listening yet
I need the vibrations in my ears
I need this melody to soothe me
I need the rhythm to take me away
To a place where love breaks the scale
Carry me over the sea in the air
So that the sound I can once again hear
I wish we could hold this pitch forever
Each and every day
I can’t wait to hear it play
I’m in love with this melody
