Dream Catcher

Your kiss was a comet
That soared to my heart
That whispered forever
Before it could start

So selfish my endeavor
In keeping you all 
Clipped wings and captive
Just to make you my heart 

But I swallowed it whole
A tough pill at that
I stepped miles backwards
And rejected your advance

I couldn’t keep up
With the happiest pain
I’ve ever felt in this lifetime
Still not yet in vain

You left with freedom
And I hardly intact
Putting you before me
Was my bravest act

My heart is half empty
It’s missing your smile
Your emerald glances
and your childlike regard 

You left me disarmed
And hollowed inside
I refused you in ounces
I ran with my pride

I daydream about you
I mare in the night
I question my strength
For giving up the fight 

I’ll run out of time
Before all hope is gone
Only hoping forever 
Won’t be too long

My freckle in time 
My beautiful tune
Keep singing the songs 
Of our memories in you

Isn’t he worth fighting for
The man I adored
The one I loved like no one before

Outsiders looking in
How to start, where do I begin
Dissecting the beginning of our end
It made no sense what happened, when?

Committing treason from the start
Betrayed myself and risked my heart broke down those once hardened walls
Because his love was the symphony to my call

I said he was the answer to my questions
All the details were never flaws
Before me a perfect man created in thought

Never stolen from this willing
Woman who loved you from the beginning
She sought to end every battle in winning

Such an incredible view
The day we’ll face the world, together, us two
Never askew, sometimes blue, impatient for what I know to be true

Here I am
Fighting this silent battle for me and you
Because I know your worth, do you?
