Falling by the Petal

In your gaze, I am but sand passing through this land in a time bottle, sifting fast then slow into moments. Waiting for the sun to shine across each grain and waiting for the glistening to outshine by grace, to glow upon my face. I am a rose my petals fall one by one leaving my heart naked before your desiring heart. I am the dew in the gentle mornings after when you tenderly longed to hold me through the endless night. It is my words that drew you it is your words that keep me in this bottle captured and spell bound. I need so much perhaps more than any being is willing to offer, I am a sponge of coral peach I can and I will take all you have to give. I sing the song of the rose and my lips hold the kiss of the rose my heart is locking your love away for now.
