Ideal couple


What should be the qualities
Of ideal lovers?

Should they look alike
Like two stars?

Or should they see
Same wave length

and hear
The same pitched, same music

And you know how sincerely we tried them all
As we wanted to be an ideal couple

We grazed together like doves
And feel the same breeze on the same road

But what happened last, we stranded on our own ways
Perhaps you know

she saw more than she should have seen
I heard more than I should have heard

If you want to be ideal lovers
Put off her eyes
And take out your ears

As a blind and a deaf
Make a couple, ideal

    Well is there such a thing as ideal lovers? This is a great question, very difficult to answer. Probably your last two sentences answered your own question. (put off her eyes and take out your ears. As a blind and deaf make a couple ideal.) that's about what it would take. thoughtful write, nice. (Report) Reply

    ah what a definition defined by you of a ideal couple.

    If you want to be ideal lovers
    Put off her eyes
    And take out your ears

    As a blind and a deaf
    Make a couple, ideal
