Love Tide

A poem for lovers ❤️

You casted me into your waters,

and then I did the same.

Not once did you ever make

me feel ashamed to be myself.

Never placed me on a shelf

like a toy you could use

as you pleased.

It wasn’t amusing for you

to deceive or mislead me.

I float when you tease

me with your mouth

and not your words

as you observe my reaction.

You understand love is an action.

Preserving each moment.

You’re my missing component.

Not for a life fulfilled or a quick thrill.

But, a better one.

My heart weighed a ton.

Somehow you dropped it to none

and carried me over like ocean waves.

I’m happier than when a composer

hears the right pitch.

You stitched me up.

When I didn’t even realize

I needed to be fixed.

You are my sixth sense.

Your touch is so intense.

As you swim in my mind,

I fall immensely in love again.

    Beautiful piece. Love the part "You stitched me up. When I didn’t even realize I needed to be fixed."
