Danse de Macabré (the dance of death)

My heart stopped as you swung from my arms
Another swift and careless drift
Hope below not death awaits, but gentle harms
As thine eyes, my reassuring nightingale
And callous curiosity, amongst thy many charms
We tag the mountains, You and I.

You kiss me to catch thy breath, as we glide
Past the hedge, over the edge
We're one with the snow, we're lost in the slide
We're lip-lock'd lovers cuddled, hoping--
To live and breathe where others died
But may I love you till the end?

We hit rock bottom at base everest
For we danced unguarded at peak the mountain.
But you're in my arms, and we're in heaven--
Kissing ever since, our lips know no rest.

Wow!!! I read this and my heart started racing...
Imagine a love so carefree that not even the winds could faze it,
So strong, storms couldnt uproot,
So eternal death itself could not seperate it...
That's love
Strong and Eternal.

"slow dancing in a burning room" is a song written by john mayer...about love.. it has almost the same intensity as that song..
