Come, this November...


You lit that fire
Inside me, of course
I burn myself in it 
Twice a day, if not more
I comb my hair, I dress my eyes
And press my toes on bare floor

Impure desires spark
Passion in my body
Wrapping my arms around
I sway away
I miss you, I love you
I need you, just like yesterday

To fast-forward time
I hum an old melody
Sprinkling some hope
On my weary heart
I shuffle the memories
Sequencing it to the very start 

Been awfully long
Since we shared a cup of tea
Been long enough
For me to remember
Come, My Love
Come, this November...
