AWAKENING OF LOVE
I spoke to you words from a love sonnet
I wrote to you words from a love stricken heart
I watched you drift toward me like a broken twig in the gentle wind
I touched the words from me to you..
Wondering if the awakening of a love already began.
I talked to you from a lover's P.O.V
You texted me from a beloved's war side,
Slowly eating away the barricade that only exists between strangers
Eventually coming to a full cycle where I know you like no one else
Where you know me like no one can
And I'm here wondering if the awakening of love had already moved to a full blaze.
I held your hand from my side of your bed
You stroke my hair with a lover's soft gaze
Slowly we'd reached iron like trust
Gently we'd closed every gap between us
You said you couldn't wish for more
I agreed, wondering if the awakening of love had reached its pinnacle.
I had a dream that you were unfaithful
You had a dream that I was distrustful
You spoke to me words of uncertainty
I spoke to you words of anger
The gentle wind turned furious
The trees were fallen,
Eventually erecting new barriers between us
I'm here wondering...who tore us apart!
You turned your back to me in your bed
I put pillows between us on that bed
You refused to speak to me
And I refused to be the lover with no pride
You thought I'd left you
I thought you couldn't be kept
But I'm still here wondering if love alone is enough.
I remembered your laugh with a pang in my chest
You remembered the whiff of Jazmin from my hair
I spoke to you with my gaze, with my touch and my heart
You spoke to me with your gaze, with your touch and your heart
and so the unfolding of love has it's pitfalls
But when the barriers are overcome it's enough.
