Preach - For Contest

I stood along this road
The only one that I have ever known
I met her in this street and kissed her for the first time on her lips

I walked along this path
And stumbled upon two heavy men
They grabbed me by the shoulders and dragged me into a black tinted van

I sat on a metal chair
My hands tied up behind my hurting back
They sat oppose to me and started pulling pictures of my dream

I watched in perplexity
As I saw her smile directly watching me
They asked me who you are and if I’m worth her loving golden heart

I shouted out my name
And told them I’m the protector of her dreams
With watchful eyes they motioned to continue suspiciously

I took a long deep breath
As I prepared to open my heart to two unknown men
they straightened up their backs and waited for me to gather all my thoughts

“I have searched all my life
and finally this girl has come to me
She’s everything I wished for, I just hope no one wakes me up from this dream

We understand each other
I don’t explain myself and she doesn’t either
we have this mutual understanding and respect and of course undying passion

I’m not here to control her 
I’m here to support her and give her a shoulder 
To carry her through life; not limit her and tell her don’t do stuff

I am her other half
I am never against her; I’m against the world for her
I am her guide, and she is my sunlight that shines the beauty of our love

We have each other’s backs
I know I can count on her whenever I needed her
And I’ll find support even when I try my best to hide the pain away

I exist to make her life 
Smooth and beautiful, not harder and make her cry
Love is our natural instinct; No one gets bored of it because it’s forever growing.”

I finished with a grin
The two got up and stood each on a side
They pat me on the shoulders and let my hands free from all their hard made ties

“You can go now…
We apologize for the scare that we gave you
We approve of you and the heart she offered with her naked hands”

I left them with a smile
And realized they both were angels of love
I found her on that street, waiting for me with her golden eyes and warm embrace.
