SEEK AND FIND
Am, I meant to find you
Should, I even, care
Dreams, consist of searching
You Make Me.
Lead me far, from where I started
Apart from you, I am defeated.
Wrestling the darkness deep inside me,
Revolution came, when you stood beside me.
Water Cleansing the pores of Earth Flushing against futile experiment Giving me form Trickling down my face Fresh for now.
Cleansing the pores of Earth
Flushing against futile experiment
Giving me form
Why do you offend me so? Awake me from my blissful sleep? Protect my mouth from vile crumbs? Prevent my mind from function norm? The beat by my breast belongs to you. The thoughts that consume my mind. Day in, day out; Modern day parchement sat in my lap, an elegant quill positioned in palm allows my barred mind in prison walls to be broken free, released; my emotions, my mind allowed to wander, to be exposed, expressed, no concerns, worries. Your body entwined with hers; it breaks me, But only my paper is to share this pain. My feelings consume me, I only want you. So I wait, one day we can be at peace.
You are my best friend,
the only one I can rely on.
Tempted by everything, but
beaten by nothing.
