Core Of My Heart - Poem by Marcia Gravett

I am a wild one
Running free
Running wild
Nobody could tame me
Nobody could reach me
Nobody could break my barrier of lust, passion, greed, desire and above all vitality.
Nobody could free my inner being
Nobody could break down the wall of pain and hurt
I had to overcome in the past
Nobody could see the real me
The person I dared to be

Until you came along
You took me right out of the blue
Simply by showing me you loved me
You fought demons to be with me
You killed wicked thoughts to hold me
You slayed dragons of desire to kiss me
You did not leave me

You climbed into my world
Swam up the channels in my heart
You unlocked the core of my heart
Accomplished to pick the pieces of my shattered soul

You saw me for who I was
Not for person I portrayed to be
It was never a game for you
I falling deeper and deeper into your arms
I look at you smiling at me
With love and respect
I can only wonder why
Is it is you that is holding me?

I can only thank you
For showing me the real person I am
The true companion I am


For bringing out the core of my heart
