Perspective

think of you Pictures, Images and Photos

I cannot seem to find perspective.  It seems I’ve lost my point-of-view.

Your words were sweet.  You were selective in choosing them.  When I saw you,

I fell apart, and all the barriers that I had set came tumbling down.

My mind and heart fused together, as you and I, whirling around.

This senseless love that spins in the darkness of an eclipsed moon has gone astray,

picked up its’ light as sparks flew brightly across our sky, in such a way

that took my breath, that stopped my heartbeat, as a great light soared through the sky.

I was blinded by the white heat that took me down then raised me high.

All for your kiss, I sailed the seas and crossed the desert’s arid sand.

I risked my life all for the honor, for the touch, of your sweet hand.

The aching pain of craving the luxury to rest upon my lover’s chest

drove me insane as I surrendered all that I am for I am blessed

to know this love that’s all-consuming, that fills my soul beyond compare.

This fragrant rose that’s ever blooming emits a perfume that is so rare.

I inhaled you within my being; now you are sailing inside my sea.

Forever love, I will be dreaming to be with you eternally.

My star had melted into morning as the dawn sent him away.

I am alone in the bright sunlight and I can’t find the words to say

how lost I am inside this vacuum.  There is no color and there’s no sound.

I cannot smell your fragrant perfume.  I wonder why it can’t be found.

It seems I’ve lost all my perception and I am frozen in deep despair.

I’ve lost the path I’d longed to follow.  My way is you and you’re not here.
