My love is a flower, So desperate To cling to the dirt on her feet- Breathing the sound of the wind, Petals reaching For the ghost of a sun Long gone, Sunken under the silhouette of You- Are an ocean I ache to swallow Afraid I’ll drown- In your love Is a drug Of warmth and light, It is all I need In this dark- Tonight.
I told them I needed time. That time I'll take, To hold face, gain control. Then I'll see what feels right, Trying not to see how you react. My actions shouldn't care, Even if my heart does. I'll try not to see how you react.
I really don't understand Why people think they Have me figured out Sure, I'm well mannered Respectful and giving My natural introversion Proceeds me at times But believe when I say There's more to me Then what you see At face value I'm layered And I only open up To a select few The worst part is I haven't opened up to you I uphold my shy demeanor But in due time I won't hold back And my actions Will turn admirable
Written on a night when the moon glows yellow in the riptide
