A Poem by Deron Alexis

By Beauty Unsettled


Stay a while.

Please won’t you stay a while.

I fear I’ll go blind

With this fog in my eyes.

But we’ll make it.

We’ll make it

Ohh, if you hold my hand.

So stay a while

And we’ll walk the dark,

Change the world

and walk the sea.

 

Hold me

Like the lily fields

Like a coat of dreams

Cause that’s how you usher me

 to where I want to be.

Each time you whisper

And write your name

Like a tag behind my ear

Or riddle my body in abstract art

Of wings like those of faith

keep sailing and loving.

 

ohh, If you’re in my arms

and you’re safe from harm

we’ll make it.

we’ll make it

so just stay a while.

I think I’m blind

With you in my eyes.

Yes you’re in my arms

And we’ll walk the edge,

Change the world

And walk on air.

 

 

Like a muse you fill my mind

You are my muse

And I, your canvas

The way I’m decorated with you,

A beauty that’s unsettled

Like quilled feathers and static

You, like a muse

I, being a canvas,

We are beautiful

And we’ll walk the songs,

 change the world

 and their definition of love.

This is beautifully crafted. The depth of emotion is so vivid it could be felt from your words. I, like Frieda, was especially enamored by these lines:

I think I’m blind
With you in my eyes.
Yes you’re in my arms
And we’ll walk the edge,
Change the world
And walk on air.

The entire piece was a joy to read.

Love this one Deron, great love poem, would make great lyrics for a love song.

Or riddle my body in abstract art
Of wings like those of faith
keep sailing and loving

And that last stanza is absolutely magnifique! Going in my favorites toot sweet....
