LOVE AND ELECTRICITY
Love and electricity are a lot alike
For we never seem to miss them till their gone.
We need both, every day of our life
And even more so between twilight and dawn.
Love resembles a self-consuming amber,
A static current of both pain and pleasure.
It can warm our bed and lighten the darkness
And for most who don’t have it, it’s a treasure.
We can turn it on or we can turn it off
Depending on whatever we’re forced to do.
It may shock us, please us, thrill us, or hurt us
Though once without it, we can’t wait to renew.
