Come With Me by Glady Mwende

Come with me

Let us hide under these forbidden skies

With no stars

Tonight

Our eyes will spark the night

 

We will tell our stories skin to skin

While our bones break to uncage our emotions

The earth will break into a song

We will forget our existence

 

I will hold you hostage

With the soft kisses you once claimed were no good

Let you dive in my dark skin

Like our past skies do to our present eternity

 

I will curve up in your chest

Listening to your heart’s language

Before dawn breaks

 

Just paint me

In the misty window panes

Where our moist breathe lay

 

Let’s make love to our darkness

Before dawn’s brightness

 

Come with me
