I'm skinny dipping into acid
Every time my lips touch yours.
Quivering as my skin strips off
Yet smiling at the thought of you.
Those soft blue eyes and that smile,
Fickle and reptilian yet so enticing,
So reassuring that it'll be different,
Though I know it won't be.
It never ever changes with you.
Yet, there's no Clyde with Bonnie,
No yo without yin and yang,
No us without work and sacrifice,
And I need to sacrifice like you.
Sacrifice those friends that judge us,
Those relatives with side eyes,
Those strangers that sneer and sigh,
All to make this work for you,
You and I and this new life we created.
