Songs Are Like Poems, So Here's a Poem

*AUDRA* says:

I've always enjoyed writing. I remember from a very young age writing poems before I even started writing songs. I don't know if they were any good, but that doesn't much matter. It was more about the release. I still write poems to this day. Some situations call for a song and some call for a poem. And in some truly rare cases a situation calls for both. As most of you know, we released a song last year called "Lightning." There was also a big budget music video released for it as well. What you may not know is that "Lightning" was inspired by a real life experience. It wasn't mine. It was one I witnessed between a close friend and a very attractive man. It was a crazy ride and I wasn't even on it! So this is that rare case with a situation inspired more than a song, but also a poem.

Never Again
 
I’ll never believe in love again. 
Nope, never. 
If you’ve seen what I’ve seen, you’d feel the same. 
Two people bound by destiny, yet destine to be apart. 
Love shared for mere hours, but a branding on the heart. 
A passion that wakes the soul and opens the senses. 
Seeing love like that, for the first time, through others glances. 
I’ll never believe in love again. 
How can I? 
It’s not meant to send you spiraling. 
Down the rabbit hole you go. 
You’re left
Euphoric
But Lost
Suddenly unwinding. 
I’ll never believe in love again. 
Well, I guess, maybe I will. 
Seeing lovers strike like lightning
What hope it can instill! 
Peace, but agony, to know the touch of the one from the touch of others. 
An unearthly experience to carry through time. 
Worth it just to fleetingly grasp it
To taste it
To relive
Breathe. 
In. 
Out. 
I’ll always believe in love.
