Along The Shores Of Your Heart

Updated on January 25, 2013
Source

I discover you and take you all in

The radiant light behind your eyes shows me other worlds
So strange and alien
So new and surreal
Oh please don't ask me to look away

You are the first smile of a thousand newborn children made flesh
The compilation of the light of a million suns
You are the reason angels dance
Why oceans shimmer

I see in you a dream of nature
The greenest grass and the mightiest trees give home to graceful creatures big and small
Flowers spring from the dirt just to receive your touch
I don't want to wake up

Within your presence I can achieve anything
Recite any poem and sing every song ever put to paper
I could transform the sky itself into carefully articulated words just for you
Oh please don't push me out

You make my blood warm yet my hands shake
Are you the victory I have battled so long for?
If you'd have this weary fool
I would make a home along the diamond-bright shores of your heart

I will never doubt your ability to fly
But I must ask how strong are your wings?
Because despite all of this light I see within
You feel a million miles away from me

      This was born of someone who had great potential, then she disappeared. Oh well.

      Thank you very much! I usually don't write poetry (It's not funny enough for my usual tastes), but inspiration just hit me and who am I to ignore it?
