He pulls away you latch on more,
The unknown is painful your past wounds are sore.
Not knowing if you’re worthy or enough,
The sea is rocky the storm is tough.
In no mans land without a map,
Do you keep trudging forward or do you head back?
This intensity you feel deep down inside,
do you sit with it,embrace it or run for cover and hide?
Those deep brown eyes that see into my soul,
That warm embrace that makes me feel whole,
Am I holding onto a rose that can’t be revived?
Do I power through this storm hoping it will subside?
Is what he feels for me the same as what I feel for him?
Standing on the edge but too nervous to swim.
Hostile freezing waters what lies within?
Is it time to cut the anchor, to break away from the chain?
That is strangling and shackling, my strength I need to regain.
My inner power is screaming, desperate for release,
The sea ready to swallow me, ready for my decease.
Do I sink or swim, do I fight or fly?
Will my power save me or will my fear let me die?
But the moment I hear his voice that strength becomes weak,
In that second he opens his mouth to speak.
He holds my hands, looks into my heart, all my intentions, my promises break apart.
Navigating no mans land I continue to roam, trying to find my map to lead me home.
