A New Hope

When will it be time
For the sublime
For you to be mine
And Let love take a chance

Afford me a second glance
So fate can take a hold
And love can be bold
Our souls pledged to each other

No longer look at another
Only hope awhile
A hope for that smile
To show your feelings pure

Allow my heart a cure.
But my feeling are hidden
Absolutely forbidden
By my complete morality

My complete insanity
In not being able to confess
And stop the second guess
That goes on in my mind.

It’s just a hopelessness to find
A discrete inch of hope
At which I can grope
With my withering hand

Stretching out of the quicksand
Of my recurrent dreams;
Trickling like a stream
A little tear escapes

Forever drapes
It’s little trace of hurt
Makes its final spurt
Down the wanderings of my life

Built on insignificant strife
From a defective girl
Who caused my feelings to unfurl
In an un-natural way

Took her chance to make me pay
For her disquiet inside
Fermenting a thousand lies
And countless false attractions
So now my heart won’t sanction
A confession to your face
As I fear I couldn’t replace
The strength I now have inside.

And yet. And yet I feel
Relaxed in your presence
I feel your warmth and essence
Radiating from within.
Your laughter and tenderness, 
 And a heart that says ‘Yes’
Allowing my hopes to endure. 

There’s no need to hide my dreams any more;
I wish to wrap you up in my arms
To be dazed by your charms
And to lie by your side
Feel love that strikes at my very core  
Forge my soul with yours
And experience a happiness eternal.

By looking into the purity of your eyes
I see a reflection of all that I am
And wish for no more than
Your swollen heart to be mine.
No longer do I feel alone,
My insecurity has been disowned.
I am now able to say those heartfelt words:

‘I love you’
