it's late & i miss u (Quietus' Greatest Hits)

By Quietus

Here on this lonely Earth,  
Moonlight electrifies the sky.
I’m enveloped in blue, 
And the whole world seems to shift.

You are the warmth of a summer’s day, 
I am the cold mist of morning.
I’m all yours,
Bound with a single kiss.

Hold me close and tell me you’re forever,
Even if you don’t love me.
It's okay to pretend,
A million times.

Author's Note:

I saw this contest and thought it was brilliant. I'm surprised I was able to piece this together, but it was really fun to do.

    This is really cool! I like your use of summer and mist to describe moods and people and their effect on one another!
