my heart withers within me
swamped by my fancies for thee
longing to hold thee as mine in a caressing embrace,
long awaiting from thee a telling smile.
maybe from it i shall gather courage to give free reign
to my tongue to sing the urges of the heart.
each day a part of me fall and withers
and light from mine eyes fade,
at night rest eludes me,
though my eyes fall heavy with sleep
in my mind dwells a constant strife,
the fracas i meet at the fading of the light
thoughts of you caressed by another.....
lives to haunt my dreams and i shan't find a peace of mind.
my love for thee blosoms,
mushrooming in my mind,
my heart and soul 'till all i think of is ye
with neither little hopes of telling thee my urgies
nor do i seek redemption by purging my fancies
Lest what i hoped will ensnare thy heart,
only frightens thee and grant me only heartache
and yet another day passes and my heart withers from the pain in desolation
nobody knows what gnaws me within
nor shall any ever learn the source of my agony
i hope to learn to curb my urges and cloak them with friendliness
but shall i trust myself to one day watch you walk way from me,
embracing another whispering to another, caressed and loved before my famished soul
your fading scent lingering still, to cut through my heart and remind me of my fading sanity
that alas ye! was surely not a dream my mind forged,
but a beauty i beheld and let slip through the cowering heart
that strained to curb what was a gift of the heart with hopes to ensnare a free spirit
this consuming passion shan't deminish, it enspires within me soul abandonment
how can i hope to walk away, when you weave for me this sensual leash
my heart is ensnared, my passion curbed, my tongue tied
all wrapped in together as a gift to my heart mate.....
