A Poem by Nathan Durham

This poem is dedicated to a very special girl. This poem is about confusion and happiness as opposite faces of the same coin.

You came to me when I was in my darkest hour
When all around me was chaotic and unfair
I was being crushed by devastating power
Before you branched out to me with your care

You reached out to me and touched my hand
Everything around me then came to a stop
Your words show me that you would understand
That you make my sun rise, and my ground drop

Then it's just us floating in an empty sea
Words lose meanings, time stays in place
All is peaceful when it's just you and me
My soul ignites when I see your beautiful face

I get butterflies when I hear your voice
The feelings I have for you can't be said
I would gladly take you above any choice
My heart sings, but it confuses my head

I am like a predator that doesn't make the kill
Blinded by what I don't know how to say
When I talk to you my mind is at a standstill
I fear my own emotions that follow me everyday

You restored my life to me, when I was in hell
For that, I want you to know what I feel inside
But these words are lost, so you never can tell
That I'm at a standstill, so I prefer to hide

Such a lovely tribute to her.. I also loved your using classical versification, and I liked this for author's keen, intimate seeing of his friendship to this certain girl.
