I was trying to be clever, but guess who/what the speaker is!
I crave your love, deep and ancient
like the beating heart of the sea.
Awash with tender feelings for you,
I am held adrift by the waves of hesitancy.
From my standpoint, I covet your touch
With a madman’s ease-your beauty a kaleidoscope of colors and temperance,
I beam my love for you, my affections
like a warm but sudden light.
A pocket of heavens splendor, it seems almost fate to have you so close.
If I knew the power of your love, I would strive to be better, become far kinder, dedicate my life to saving others-
When you open yours arms to me,
I will finally know peace.
I have stood vigilant and tall throughout the years, weathered by winds and rain,
But to know your love- the pain will wash away like rippled tides.
When the moon is high, and her face is full and mocking, I can sense your frustration, your emotions haywire, and fevered.
You thrash and scream as she taunts you from her throne,
but be calm,
you are safe my dear,
for I will shine my light upon you,
to lead you the way-
As your hands reach my shore.
