Lessons

Slow dancing while our prospects went up in flames
Like puppets we acted, oblivious to the chains
Our incompatible mania came disguised as love
Rendered together by mutual demons as if it was enough

Angelic features
Fractured hearts
Like a fix I craved your touch to keep me compelled to the dark
Whiskey scented passion
Our main source of satisfaction
Like black doves we flew into a new reality of true

Ivory powder
Caffiene fuelled hours
Seeking signs of serenity like it was a higher power

Oblivion was our appeal
We disregarded what was real
Obscured our senses to search for elation
I had found my sinful form of salvation

Was it intamicy or was it denial?
Regardless, we remembered what it felt like to smile
By slow dancing while our prospects went up in flames
Like puppets we acted, oblivious to the chains

Wow sublime and great figuratives crafted and awesome phrasings to describe a relationship. Seems to be ambivalent perhaps?
