Feminine nature and dominant speed.
Sweet surrender and futile in need.

Empty pages of frivolous lore.
Navigation necessary to explore.

Breaking the tide; neglecting the heart.
Shallow from fear still she did impart.

Polished and bright in the evenings allure.
Insensitive design and intentions impure.

Gladly they wait for her exquisite retreat.
Haughty she'll watch as they turn down the sheet.

    This is very open for interpretation. Sounds almost like someone's true colors were being exposed or something. It was very beautiful, Sara

    Ya gotta watch those impure intentions. I knew a guy who acted on them and when he passed away it took the coroner a week to take the smile off his face. Hope all is well. Take care. Vince
