    Your smile suffocated my dreams
    building the foundation of love by
    rearranging my hopes of today alone
    into an asylum of togetherness;

    hand crafted imaginings encased in
    old wooden crates sitting alone in a
    dust filled corridor of undeclared
    desires and unfulfilled needs;

    I have never allowed anyone to
    Venture beyond the superficial
    For there is none willing to seek
    out the treasures surrounded by pain;

    and yet, I can’t see clearly since you
    have appeared for my devices have
    no effect on one whose recreated the
    definition of Webster’s idea of one;

    How is it that what was once a
    Plan rooted in crystal clear vision
    is now blinded by an every day
    silouhette etched in my vision;

    I watch as you walk the path to me
    Gently through sediments of guilt
    That ooze libations of memories
    Creating slippery, painful paths;

    Nothing to hold onto, no light to
    Guide and yet you, a traveler of
    Faith, continues forward as your
    Steps are stabilized by love’s grip;

    I didn’t want you to experience so much
    of me and yet with every step you walk
    Another door is opened and another
    Lock is broken to reveal more trust;

    Will I ever reclaim my grip on what
    I believe should be the best for me
    Or shall I continue to allow the doors
    To be torn down by this holder of love;

    I want find a way to resurrect my
    dreams but my strength is stolen
    by an addiction to embrace the
    configurations of your essence;

    so today, i shall just rest in your
    arms as my strength to deny is now
    reformed into a strength to cover
    you in the adoration of my heart...

    when "love" becomes "in love"...
