I suppose I never dreamed
that I would find
someone that understood
You were different
You gave me that smile.
that honest, open, cheeky smile.
you looked me in the eye when we first met,
and you saw me.
and that’s when I knew,
that we’d be friends.
I try to avoid your eyes,
Because they make me squirm,
bright and shining, as clear as a pool of glass
and yet as deep as the rolling waves
But I find myself getting pulled in,
I get lost and can’t seem
nor am I willing
to stumble out again
You play many instruments,
too many to list
but you’re especially good at
tugging on my heartstrings
crafting music that
wraps around my head
that makes everything seem clear
and yet opaque, as if a fog
had clouded over my brain
and misted my eyes
letting the tears drip down
like a waterfall on my face
I cry for you.
And yet there is no way
I’d let the springs run dry.
Because I care.
Now, when I take the risk,
and look into the sapphires
that are your eyes,
I see storms approaching
no matter what I do
The thunder rumbles on
The lightening strikes soon after,
it terrifies me,
but all I can do is cling onto land
and pray that
I don’t lose you in the flood
I know you’ve cried an ocean of tears yourself
drowning yourself in your own sorrows
I know you’ve lost your only life-raft
but one day you can build another
Until then I’ll help you swim to shore
and although I’ve half-drowned myself in the process
All I know, is that if I’m going sink,
I’m lifting you until I know you’re safe
Because I may not be your life-raft,
But I’ll rescue you from the storm
I’ll stay with you through this one
and I’ll protect you through all the others
One day the skies will clear
And become a pale blue,
But that’s when I know to look away from your eyes,
and from the blinding sunshine that is you.
Just a little something I wrote while feeling wistful :)
