New and a bit Alarming

If he comes near me I’ll fall in love
It won’t be calm, I’ll swoop down like a dove
It won’t be “Talk to you later” and “I’ll call you then”
Its where are you now and where have you been
Its tell me your secrets and tell me your dreams
Shimmering lake water reflecting sunbeams
No boundaries to hold me in like the tide
I’m free flowing and moving, unable to hide
No sensible moments where I hold myself back
But showing it all as I bear what I lack
I won’t play by the rules of see him once a week
I’ll be calling his house to just hear him speak
Men in movies seem nuisances around
Didn’t know his voice was a wondrous sound
I thought I wouldn’t need, would take it or leave it
But he’s got me good and I can hardly believe it
I thought I’d be fine, a wealth of common sense
But when I meet his eyes he collapses my tents
I have nowhere to go and nowhere to hide
When I’m around him I’m there in plain sight
He has the ball and I couldn’t dodge if I tried
He’s moving in close and my nerves are all fried
But he just talks so gentle and never raises his voice
As if he can feel me slip away in this choice
As if somehow he knows the fear in my heart
And is extra quiet so he won’t make me start
I find I can breathe though he’s in the room
And when he’s away I pray he’ll come soon
To be captured like this by a man that I know
Is more peace in my soul than I’m able to grow
To be trapped by him in a place I can’t leave
Is serenity, rest, as I hang on his sleeve
He has given me something that I didn’t own
Acceptance complete is what he has shown

Secret Conversations

Our secret conversations paint the dead of night
Whether silent moon bound talks or songs whispering twilight
I can hear your soul whether you’re near or far away
In the quiet of the dark or calm moments of the day
I can almost hear your heartbeat and hope that you hear mine
It seems you do, like all else, somehow they intertwine
You are a mystery to me and a bundle of joy
I can’t believe how in this life this girl met such a boy

You illuminate the pavements as they’re dancing with the stars
I see your face in rainbows as they break down all my bars
One touch to me and I am changed like elements colliding
Somehow what has come over me unwavering, abiding
Washes me like a wave and sweeps along my shore
Til I fall into your arms, I can’t resist it anymore
I don’t know how to be stone strong when I’m looking in your eyes
Can’t hold up in your sight as you strip away my lies
Fall into a hug, you catch me like a pillow
Curl around me, one and two, til I’m swaying like a willow

Whatever I could be for you would be my heart’s delight
As I sing out a melody that’s born from firelight
My hands, it seems, were made to hold and help you if I can
Tears wipe away the rivers as you tell me all your plans
I know I am an ocean and stretch out like the sea
It’s just that you’re the sky and reflect yourself in me
I know we’re uncontained, no borders hold us in
It’s just to love you as I am is freedom to my skin

Faith in you is brimming full
Soul nothing this world could cull
All the angry raucous stares
Won’t buy or sell your lovely wares
You are worth your weight in gold
Don’t settle prices you are sold
They pass you by, eyes skim over
Like feet upon a four leafed clover
Know this once, for all of time
You are precious in my eyes
I see the way you set alight
Burning stars in blue twilight

I had a head that needed rest
You put your shoulder to the test
Carried weight that I was bearing
Held my hand while I was staring
Stood up straight to be stone strong
Caught me when my feet went wrong
Set me up and set me back
Then looked at me as though you lack
I don’t faze or bother you
The foot is in the other shoe
You lean against me for support
Our eyes flash with our back and forth

I don’t know what to say tonight
Except I’m glad you’re in my life
We met once on shores of heaven
Grey is the colour of eleven
