Fury of Love
I love you for beautiful things inside you buried
That only my eyes can behold.
People are attracted by glitter but
I’m attracted by innate qualities.
You’re the soul and the center of everything
In my life that is stainless.
The sound of your voice a soothing effect
Has on my nerves.
The touch of your hands has opened
The door long shut in my heart.
There is music in your love.
I seek you like a cold animal seek the fire.
I run to you like a child runs to his mother
In your love lay my courage
To bolster my fears.
I can see your heart in your face.
Without you the earth would
Seem like hell.
Your worth is as heavy as solid gold;
You’re the womb and tomb
Of my dreams.
I’ve waited so long to hear you
Mention the three magic words
And when you did
My heart was sweet.
The day I first met you my conscience
Wrestled with temptation and lost.
You smelled of love.
I could no more resist your charm
Than a fly can resist a honey pot.
The flower of our love is no
Transitory bloom but rather
The radiant resemblance of one
Cut in an indestructible gem
I love you.
