Return Me To Myself
My mind struggles to accept
The truth your eyes convey..
They shine, they speak, they say
My heart remembers to beat
as my lips forget to speak of the strength, once
weak, I gain
at the twitch of your cheeks/
A smile I don’t deserve
Reserved for a better me…
Here, I am better; there, I am of slack
from the lack
of promise hinted in your laugh
With you, the mask of hard & rash
unveils, and I feel your joy
for life./ I wish to adopt it as my own
Before I returned or heard your calls,
I was trapped in a land where water falls…
without a path,
/I found my way.
You’d called me home
I chose to stay
where the butterflies reside,
within your eyes..
Skin to skin, heart to heart
It all begins where it fell apart.
has woken me from slumber,
& I wonder
If we’ve met before
In a land where water pours & pours
I’m sure your eyes will tell it all And recall: love is magic and worth the fall.
