I-Tunes Redux - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

I know you deserve
so much more than this
as you sit there far away, in my grace
my world is spinning
I think of you
and violins start to fill in space

I have a smile
stretched from ear to ear
and I picture you walking toward me
the breath between us
could be spun gold
you draw my life from me
and give it back.
it was the union of our spirits
that caused you to remain.

hearing the angels laughing
without a sound,
I saw the signs of my undoing
yet I welcomed my beautiful.

you gave to me so many things
and I gave you only my dark eyes
which melted your soul down,
to the place where it longed to be.
I no longer expect to sleep through the night
now that I believe in something
I've felt but never touched before.

all the breath has left me
fleeing from myself
the tears are free.
I can't wander past my interior walls,
cause the night, it calls, undying
had I known, I never would have opened up
but you seemed so real.

I want you to tell me of passionate lovers
who rescue each other
If you can't, still come to me
and don't be afraid to cry at what you see.
I want the union
but know there will never be a point where I will be the same

This, I suppose, would be considered a found poem. It was created using only the lyrics from songs I was listening to, on i-Tunes. It was an interesting experiment...
