Ode To No One - Poem by Jamie Collins

I
Mine eyes opened upon your face
Visions of wonder filled my head
Sending me to your holy place.

Raising my heart from the dead
And reinventing the secrets of love
From the skin it has shed.

And everything exists above
The teaching of a higher learning
And the secrets of a new love.

My heart for your heart is yearning
And I feel it when we are near
Love in my heart is burning

And from the secrets of love, I hear
Love is burning everywhere.

II
Wild winds my love has blown
Into the bowels of darkest night
On wild winds my love has flown

From the dimmest starlight
Into something far below
New feelings take flight

Feelings I thought I’d never know
From the chasms of despair
Only happiness can show

My love needs no repair
Even though I can see
Sometimes life isn’t fair

You live your life for loving me
And I live my life for loving thee.
