Names carved into stone tell an ancient tale
Of days long past and youthful dreams that pale
With wounds endured and crafted in travail
A heart of sorrow
Which cannot be repaired
Lost in life's silent ache
Burns holes in my memory.
I waited for your call
From the edge of recollection
The warehouse of my heart
Into a chamber of desolation.
Strike the iron and split creations seed,
with force and power that divides, build the
ship that will herald the breath of promise.
You float around my mind
You invade my slumber
You run through my veins
You live in my heart
The oil of your word
Drips through my hands, anointing me
Your sweet aroma
Floods through my senses, filling me
A bitter pill given takes away my breath
Inherited nature leads me to my death
Every moment lived drives me to my fate.
Intense the intoxication of my heart
As heavens spirit flows through every part
Sip the wine as it kisses my lips, that
dance of delight which entices my heart,
drunk on the feelings of unrestrained joy
You came to me at night
Weak with desire
You have stolen my heart.
You were knocking at the door
Called me to unlock it
But you had disappeared.
I searched the town for you
Looked on every street
Would not let you go.
You finally claimed me
Called me your own
Loved me unconditionally.
