THE HEART UPON THE SEA
What could we make of the waves;
The waves that roar in your troubled heart;
Is it silently waiting and building up?
To something that calls catastrophe;
Or will it subside by the passing tides.
Is it wrong to call its doings enchanting;
Does it really trap the mind with its symphony?
The orchestra of a clashing sea.
I Wonder Why?
I hear your name with the winds that blow
Your tears, they fall in the form of rain
Why do you claim everything under you to be yours?
Why does your wrath claim countless souls?
How do you account for the wonders in everything you do?
What is it that makes you so special?
Why does this flood of clouds surround me?
Why does everything we do depend on you?
What is it that makes you blue?
Why I ask….
I may never know
And nor would I want to
This ethereal beauty you present to me
I will forever relish
For you are there in a different realm
And I am here just blessed with your presence.
You move on so that the winds may rise you to a higher place
You move on so that the world knows what you’re really worth
You move on from this darkness which disguises itself as Love
You move on so you may find love
You move so that you may become Love
You move on so you may find yourself a place to belong
The kindness that makes your heart a solemn home
I dreamt of a place beyond the unknown
Only the idea of you has kept me going
Are you a mere fallacy?
Or are you something more?
If I were to become any man,
Would I be enough for you?
For you live among the stars
A place that is limited by my thoughts.
