From her eyes,
A raging inferno covers my eyes
That blanket of fire rendering me blind
Through your words you pierce my heart
Leaving it to bleed alone in the dark
The merciless caress of your laugh
Shuns me away, alone and afar
What am I to do, but to follow you blind,
For this is my home, for I have nowhere else to go
You have cast me away in this turbulent sea,
And I am willing to drown, if only that would make you pleased.
From my eyes,
A raging kaleidoscope flutters over my eyes
That blanket of colour rendering me helpless
Through your words did you touch my heart
Leaving it soft, vulnerable, open for you.
The merciful caress of your laugh
Childhood gaze and smile
Shuns me afar.
What am I to do, but to follow in your footsteps
Your path that cut short ever so
My heart is your home, the place you longed to be,
I wish you would hear my cries
Other than the calling whisper of the wind.
You have cast me through a warm bed of sea
I would have rescued you and spoke to you
My infinite words of love and compassion
And reminded you,
Everything's not lost.
My warm embrace would have calmed
Your racing heart and cool soul.
I may know you not, yet I love you
For your way with flowing words
And yearning heart
Searching, searching for the one
The sensitive and truehearted one.
If only I could show you,
This could have been me…
