Ironic Romance Poem by Faustina Marie

As the storms subsided
I recognized your plight,
The tide pushed and pulled us closer
Until my land was out of sight

Outraged, the shoreline shook
Palms ripped themselves from sand
Homes and memories were forsook
The lightening split the heavens
While thunder deafened every earthly nook.
Even then, there you were

I've brought you to the shore,
So my world we can reform
You know all the wreckage,
You know you inspired the storm?

Known or not, now you're here
Now you're going to stay.

Side by side, and hand in hand
We've built so much already.
Side by side
That was inevitable...
Hand in hand; that was your dream all along

How did you creep into my mind
And plant that lovely dream?
Stitch your name into my heart
Whilst patching up a seam?

Success is such a formal word
To express our victory.
A silly crush and subtle goal
Have turned 'you' and 'I' to 'we'

You took the chance,
I took the dive,
And now the smiles dance
Upon these lips, now graced by
Possible romance
