Some days I wonder if your mind
will ever meet your heart,
if they'll just continue this long
distance relationship,
or finally, disconnect altogether.
I feel I'm starting to get lost
in this placid harmony,
stumbling on the lines in this
******* script.
I miss your roar.
The vibrations of your voice have
been weakened by the
authority in his name.
I fear one day I won't
remember the shape of your face,
Nor will you grace the whisper
in my chest that carries your smile.
We have been bonded by fate,
but something is pulling at your bones,
serving his ***** your taste.
His trickle of bait has enticed
your need to be seen,
but you fail to realize that
you were never invisible.
I see you!
I see you in the light catching
the gleam of him,
as you dangle there waiting for his delight,
but in the dark, he keeps you under his breath,
leaving you gasping for his glance.
You see in the dark,
I still see you,
because you sparkle like a diamond being kissed by the sun.
So I wonder,
will your heart ever remember the way you roar?
