My Sweet Despair
Oh my love . . .
Did I dare my soul to share?
My naked heart, you stripped me bare.
Yet in my life I plunged ahead,
With no known fear to bring me dread.
Your precious face is everywhere.
Outside your arms, oh sweet despair.
I could drown within your eyes,
For all I love within them lies.
And once my love I showed no care
For my own heart was yours to share.
No wrong before me could you do,
With sweet, soft whispers, I love you.
Should I drown in my own tears
I could not love you less nor fear,
For what would come we could not know.
No matter love, I love you so.

To be in the midst of a tormented love affair is to run naked in an endless thunderstorm. It is to be so exposed at your core that you exist on the love alone.
