You took me to a world
And held me captive in your arms
There was no escaping your grasp …. on all of me.
How could I leave such a warm, enticing place
When every part of me you devoured and engaged so intensely
That I was shackled to you ….
With my heart; my body
Encased in a shell that no one else would ever prise open
To find the treasures of the deep
The pearl that was yours; and would be for eternity
Such riches of the depths that you sought …. and found
With strength and desire I have never felt or seen before … and never will again
You are mine with every breath that I breathe; every move that I make
And to this world that you have conquered and rule ….
I will stay …. captive by your side
THE ECHO OF MY WISHES
Did you say that you loved me when you walked away, … or
was it just the echo of my wishes that I heard.
My body ached for all the love that we’d shared, emptied
like a jar of useless hearts, .. spent, before there was chance
Discarded, …. worthless,
Me, a task you’d had to endure for all this time, … yet one
that I desperately hoped you would persevere,
… but your eyes always spoke the truth, and tho your words
they left kindly from your lips, …. the heartache was cruel.
Your steps as you left, I followed in my mind,
… until after time the memory was too faint to care
