The Pearl that is you

Love me so I may love you more Adore us so I may hold your soul Chorus enters with rhythm in chord Lord help us for it’s in our core Rewarding is the oceans in your eyes That shine deep beneath the tides Diving deep for the pearl that hides Holding breath for as long as I find The pearl I seek within your eyes Your minds divine inspirited rhyme Time and time have I failed to rhyme My love with mind and theirs combined It never fit Their script couldn’t remit Aimed and spit at all of my wit Whipped and snipped at my candles lit wick Almost snuffed my flames innocence But then there was you There was always you And I always knew But thought the opportunity blew Passed by like when you drove by in that car with another guy But you were just writing to your own surprise :) Years pass by Fears crashed with lies Beating bruised with knives Mentally strangled with ties Similar story with similar lives Finally connect our lives in rhyme Kindly kiss your delicate mind Tiny drips of tiny cries My soul feels your times in crime Essence presence lines define Our hearts string an unbreakable vine For us to reach, grab and lift Both of us with our amazing gifts To express and feel more of what’s real To heal and believe in what we can see So let it be so I may seek That pearl deep within your sea

"But then there was you There was always you" This Michael would have been a fantastic poem by herself. The rest is glorious window dressing.
