Broken heart; and tired mind.
Useless body, set out to find,
A solemn place to belong,
Where you can dance, and write your song.
Where worries past, will not follow,
Torture you, obsess and swallow.
Where what you grow into; matters more,
Than what you were, from long before.
Companions come, and surely go,
And while where they went, you’d like to know,
Free they are; let them wander over hill,
And out of sight, forever still.
Love you’ve had, has left you to dwindle,
And still with open heart you’ve managed to rekindle,
Time again sparked hope from ash,
And time again, your body’s been smashed.
Bruised and cracked, imperfect and scarred,
Your thoughts and feelings, permanently marred.
Trust and expectation are always cautious,
Every bout of closeness, makes you noxious.
Never been given reason for kind,
Yet still your heart, and that word entwined,
And so through fog you wander on,
To find the place, where you belong.
It’s darkness out there, with fumbling hand,
You cast it out, searching for land,
In lieu of that, as you’ve found times past
Instead you feel somebody, at last.
They hold you tight, and pull you close,
You could not tell who needs who most,
But of course you would not let on,
Your defences are up, you appear to be strong.
You’ll try not to care, for fear of ridicule,
It will go unnoticed, that it’s yourself the fool.
You’ll talk and wonder, and eventually you’ll share,
And at some point you’ll come to realise you care,
You capsulise and notice, every detail
And while you try to find the bad, every time you fail,
While every other has given you reason to doubt,
You find yourself in wonder of what this person is about.
There’s hope and wonder now in your eyes,
And try as you will; you can’t disguise.
They’ve broken through; see who you are,
And they adore you still, for that every scar.
Through imperfection they’ll see you perfect,
They’ll see beauty where you see defect.
And as paths ahead split, you wish; nae you know,
They’ll follow you wherever you go.
Then at some point, as you both foot down path,
And you try to anticipate what could be aftermath,
You realise you no longer travel simply side by side,
But you walk hand in hand, and together you stride.
You don’t look ahead, and rather stare into eyes,
As the dawning sun, breaks the burning skies.
Together you slow, almost down to a crawl,
Amidst dewy grass, wild land critters answer the call.
You both seem to hear, you need not travel any more,
As together you understand, what you’ve been looking for.
Come away; take them in hand, and lay, for no longer you roam,
What you searched for was love; and so with love – you’re home.
