Turbulence (Ode to Manic Depression)


What I possess today
Is your smile
Wrapped in vermillion
What is lost to the gloom
To the murky presence of melancholia

Yet I dream of your next today
What you possess within you
The sun that colors my world
Only to abdicate her luminosity at nightfall
What blooms like a flower at dawn
And fades at dusk

I am the soul in tune
To your flow and ebb, rise and fall
The arms that will hold you when you leap in faith
The lips that will resurrect you when your heart is bled

So hold me my love, in today's allure
And linger with me in tomorrow's surrender
For today is merely tomorrow's aura
The sun to the nightfall
And I am the soul that will hold you in darkness and light
Even in the shadow of your former self
Who you knew but abandoned
On manic meadows of your temperamental mind

You're the season and I am the reason
You're the catamaran and I am the rope
So hold me like a shoulder and dissolve in me your darkness
As you fold in to my walls
As I protect you from the wrath of manic tempests

So hold on to your today my love
And let go of all darkness
As you heal on my shoulder and dance on my body

What is love but an analgesic
And in love, I stand before you

To be your morphine......

Forever after............
