    I Await

    I saw you today
    dancing in a daydream
    The entire world stopped spinning
    to watch as you moved between dimensions

    I was falling
    straight up to the stars
    a willing sacrifice to your smile
    unafraid of the repercussions
    I allowed the gates to be opened

    The darkness
    poured down like rain in an attempt
    to steal the remnants of hope
    to conquer the battlefield of the future

    Brave nights of passion
    stand on the firing line,
    awaiting the final command
    embracing the next step
    ready to ascend

    A lifetime lived and learned
    in an effort to free the magic within
    I let go and fell to my death
    and there I will remain
    until I decide to awaken
    for the very first time

    I can no longer see
    so I just look
    I wander as if lost
    drunk and disoriented
    awaiting your hand

    I believe in more than forever,
    stared into the face of oblivion
    embraced the lashings of feeling,
    with no want of recourse

    I am real
    I am here
    I am yours
    I await

    Today existed only for
    the moment when you were in it

    You are an inspiration to me. It might even be possible that we are soul mates.

    Corinna commented on I Await


    I am left feeling like a soul waiting to be reborn, a soul with the knowing of where to go, but waiting for it's partner to see it. Great read!

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
