I fell between the cracks, landed gently in your palm.
Look at me.
I blossom within your touch,
my petals flush deep pink.
Your essence is nourishment to my soul,
I burst into colour upon your touch,
my fragrance disperses upon the breeze
at your tease
and I am free.
Perhaps, but perhaps…more…
such a term seems irrelevant to your
enchantment upon me.
The epitome of inspiration,
your existence dances crimson red through my mind ,
fire burns within this poet to delve into realm of belief ,
fly naked upon the wings of Icarus.
I hear the rattle of forlorn warnings, don’t fly too high
don’t fly too low,
but I am at one with his spirit and we soar into skies of blue.
Tell me please the spell in which you have cast upon my spirit,
how is it so that I can feel peace within?
A gentle calm caressing …Me.
So many questions I am lost within your touch
the world has become a quiet lullaby
I hear only your voice and my whispers
as we synchronize across the atoms of time.
I wish to fly,
to become my existence,
to no longer linger in shadows…To see if only for a moment,
pride within your eyes.
The skies are again blue and I search for golden rays,
my eyes fall forever on you,
searching always for their dark embrace and silent caress.
More than a muse,
you have woken the poet within,
you have woken my spirit with your delicate touch and affectionate love.
I am yours,
I have fallen between the cracks and landed gently in your palm.
My petals peel away,
my colour becomes vibrant,
my fragrance enriched,
I bloom at your touch,
my blossom is yours,
you are the gentle breeze that calms my soul,
you are the fire that sets me free,
oh hell, tell me please what have you done to me!
