Whirlpool of Our Stories

 And I come here to take your hand, 

I'll forget the world and all jealousy; 

If you would only hold me close as we walk; 

Walk on this timeless sand. 

And I will leave behind all the worldly pleasure, 

Walk beside you holding your finger like a child.

 If you say I'm funny that way, I'll be the clown 

To see you smile, behind the laugher that you hide. 

And I can promise nothing but my idiocy, 

Or naiveté that says, you are my lucky star, 

If you are the silhouette, I'll be your shadow 

Tangled and entwined; inseparable by desire. 

Yet we shy away, from this untamed longing, 

Whirlpool of our stories tuckered us out, 

Speaking in whispers of self-righteous doubt; 

For nothing ever ends, but has many beginnings. 

Then again! And then again!! And then again!! 

Speaking strictly for me, we cling onto hope; 

I will be the trapeze swinger on the worn out fiery rope, 

Just to walk beside you and hold your hand in the rain.
