Wishful thinking

Wishful thinking

A Poem by EmeraldFacet

Unanswered prayers only lonely heart could ever endure
As each day passed a pang so painful a part of me died, I was sure
But then you came along and sweetly swept me off my feet
I looked at your inviting smile and breathed a sigh of relief

Love finally blossomed on the eve of thanksgiving
The two of us laying there with eyes ever so forgiving
The sun rose once more the next glorious day
I watched it glow from my bedroom window as I indulged in each warm and sweet ray
Still feeling your tongue caress my palate and your lips upon my neck
Never did I want to come down from this high, no interest in reality check

I invited you in yet again, once more
Acknowledging me mischievous, no regrets of unlocking this centuries wedged door
Waking up in the morning laying next to you
The weight of the world lifted off my shoulders, boy was that feeling quite overdue
A kiss upon my forehead you planted with sweet embrace
From that moment it was you, the only one I would ever desire to face

But Father Time is ruthless, always carrying his mighty scythe
I never anticipated he’d cut through our bond and with it my spirit of blithe
Ive written lists, very very long ones and even checked them twice
So that I can view us from an outside perspective to realize you actually were not very nice

Promises made but hardly delivered
My heart tried to forgive but my lips would not halt, they quivered
Twice I walked away you will forever recall
I wonder if someday you'll come to realize that it was you who finalized the epic fall
You shouted indifference, loving me you said felt like an uphill battle
Suddenly terms of endearment you once spoke turned into utter and complete prattle

How could I ask myself to return to a space so unsafe
Why would I ever begin my tale as a scared and fragile waif
And so I chose to pick up the pieces of me once promised to you
Work to put them all back so that one day I may be so lucky to start a new

Trust that the piercing pain of your absence surely ebbs and flows
But the entrancing ember of love in my heart forever glows
It glows in Eden, it glows in me
It glows for the gallant soul who will come across this gilded cage and unlock it with a golden key.

I believe that embers of the past have just enough potential to start a fire in our soul, enableing each one of us to, not become great for ourselves, but rather to do something great for someone else.. more..
