Drifting apart

Drifting apart
Screaming out loud
Shadows in the sun
Piercing the clouds

The beauty surreal
The touch serene
Lusting fire within
Doesn't seem to cease

The smoking ashes
Warming up the skin
Don't let it escape
Burning the desires

The sun is hidden
Beneath the charred clouds
The time is forcing
Shadows to come closer

The pelting of the rain
Letting dry velvet to wet
The two souls unite
This time no one could stop!
PS: The sentence used in the second line of last verse contains two opposites dry and wet as highlighted.
