So here is me killing two birds with one stone:

One challenge from phenomena has her asking me to write a song using something she has written, and so I have. It was a poem she wrote called "The Universality of Us." I loved it, needless to say; I did, however, have to edit the lyrics just a little in order to fit the song (I usually write music first, lyrics second). Hopefully it is not egregious.

The other challenge was another from Metaphorest, saying I needed to write a song using a poem as lyrics, and so I have! (see above)

Again, I hope this is worth your time, and you get a little bit of joy(?) out of it. And thanks to both phenomenaaa and Metaphorest for such wonderful challenges!

Bring 'em on!

Lyrics:

We floated
through the cool,
black
paradise of the stars.

We kissed underneath
the light
of the meteorites.
We kissed amongst dreaming
nebulae.
We kissed along the shadows
of the moon.

I loved you.

We floated
through the cool
black
paradise of love.

We walked
amidst the
aching, violent
turmoil of Earth.

You held my hand
through darkness
I could not explain.
You held my hand
when I cried for Paradise.

I loved you.
