I see home in your eyes and I am violently homesick

In Japan there is an art form
called kintsukuroi which means
to repair with gold
When a ceramic *** or bowls
would break the artisan would
put the pieces together again
using gold or silver lacquer
to create something stronger
forevermore beautiful than before
The breaking is never something
to hide
It doesn’t mean that the work of the art
is ruined or without value because
it is different than what anticipated
Kintsukuroi is a way of living that
embraces every flaw and imperfections
Every crack is part of the  history of
the object and it becomes forevermore
precisely because it has been
I’ve told this story to tell you this
People are the same way
Being hurt or heart broken
or feeling broken generally
is not who you are
It is something that happens to you
Rise up stand proud and move forward
Stop looking about what the world says
about you and who you are
The value of your worth is more
than you can ever conceive
and when you trust
in your heart you’ll understand
the Power you house within
Cracks and all your true value
can never be lost in translation
Know the value of your worth, you worth more than gold... made to an exact specification!

I have made myself vulnerable to you
Willingly handed over my life
You hold it in the palm of your hands
I am counting down the days until you tear my heart
Into a million pieces
I pray that you have the decency
To spread the ashes of my most important *****  
Into the body of water, I adore the most
Spread my ashes in the ocean

The earth's inner core is pulling us together
Craving for our skin to touch,
Igniting our bones
Our naked souls
Have been longing for each other
The center of the earth
Dragging us closer to one another
Every time it revolves

In the middle of the night
I walked down to the ocean
Knee deep, I whispered to her
Confessing my innermost secrets
"He has given me another look on life
and he has taught me how to love again"
In that moment there
The salt in her body turned to sugar
and the ocean tides brought me safely back to shore
So I could fall back asleep in your loving arms

The right one will inspire you to bloom
Just as the tulips do in April
They will not shelter the daylight
In hopes to forsee you wilt
The right one will want you to thrive
To grow strong,
Flourishing with magnificence
They will stand there speechless,
In awe of you and your beauty
You bring out the best in me

Goosebumps rise to the surface of your skin
As my nails gently scratch your bare back
Your steady hands
Cup my face
As you kiss me,
You tell me all of the pretty things
I want to hear
I can't help but fall
Into an ocean
Of affection
Your body is taking over me
Finding its way into every crevasse
I'm surrounded by your presence
I have been thoroughly submerged
Soaking my skin
In your love
