 Reflections of My Heart

Prison Of Passion

Prison Of Passion

Night after night she tosses
in fevered sleepless fit
Her nightly bed becomes
a lonely imprisoned pit

From restless sleep she awakes
and its always the same
This raging feeling inside
that drives her insane

Needing what she can not have
reaching for what is not there
The same ripping pain
that is a nightly affair

She falls on bended knee
asking for an end.
When will her passion
be free to ascend?

She has tasted the sweetness
She knows it awaits her arrival
Yet the lonely passion
has become her every nite vigil

How does she escape
what is internally held captive?
When will it all end?
When will her inner passion relive?

Appreciating what is freely given
Gives birth from absence
A passion that burns her very soul
and ingrained upon her essence

It reaches from her tortured body
into nothingness
while stirring a passion deep within
for simple togetherness.

Passion of living

Passion of unity

Passion of giving

Passion for eternity

She will struggle and fight
She will make it all happen
She will break free
of her Prison of Passion

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
