The vision you see in my eyes Sanity dictates where Insanity prevails

The vision you see in my eyes 

You are the name of my sorrow, my sadness !
The sadness you say you see in my eyes.

Sanity dictates “ where ? ”,

You “ are ” rays of light – brightens up my darkness ?,
the sun that radiates – lightens up my world, my skies.
You “ are ” the sustenance – nourishment that feeds my soul,
the spirit that lifts – my spirit wants to know.
You “ have been ”, from the beginning – “ are ” my obsession.
The truth of this, lies in the heart of my confession.
You “ are ” the reason – once again I was able to love,
the basis upon which to rise up – to reach out, to climb above. 
You “ are” the sweet breath - a breath of fresh air, 
the source, the reason – the impetus, for why I care.
You “ are” the soldiers – the essence of my immune system.
The warriors that stand guard – that fight for my life. 
You “ are” the blood – the life’s force in my veins,
the thoughts that carry – that fill my brain.
You “ are” the clouds – the cause for all the rain, 
the tear drops that inundate – they obfuscate my vision. 
You “ are” the source – the verbiage of my derision,
the negative force – words looking to fight
You “ are” the bird – the wings, giving my love flight,
a reason to soar – to look for a brighter light.
You “ are” the light that carries – makes a man want to love,
never giving reason, cause, hope, yet he still wants to climb above
all that once was, bringing you along, on those journeys
that forget history and it’s failures – creating new memories.

Insanity prevails

And this man’s love – blind, frail– knows not how to fail !!!
Never giving up !!, only giving in ??, Princess !!, you win !!
