Wavering Petals


She had me at hello...
she had me at hello...
Sarah sweet Sorceress
lovely Juliet
kind Belle
gentle Acadia
alluring Felicity
longing Adryanna
She had me at hello...
Like a flower
I wavered, my petals to the left
for my tongue lost control
and my mouth couldn't hold onto it
I wavered, my petals to the right
for my iris' were replaced with tiny hearts
and all I could see was future love
She had me at hello...
Like a bird
I serenaded till my heart gave out
Like a bird
I swooned
like the desperate man I am
I did everything I could to prove I was fit for them
I did everything I could to prove...
She had me at hello...
Every experience was different
every outcome ended up the same
more or less
She had me at hello...
I was captivated
I was kept under a shroud of blindness
I was blind to everyone but her
I was blind to everything except her
I thought nothing was real
except my heart beating out of my chest
once I saw those eyes
except my heart beating out of my chest
once I saw that smile
except my heart beating out of my chest
once I heard that honey coated laugh
She had me at hello...
ironic now that I have them at good night...
The sun has set on our times
the sun has fallen asleep for the day
just good night
Good night is to tomorrow
as goodbye is to forever
My lack of will power
makes goodbye a hollow promise
so I say good night
at morning's fright
so I say good night
in hopes to say
you always took my breath away...
She had me at hello...
Sarah the Sorceress, my hollow victory
Juliet, my rising tide of complex emotions
Belle, my life three years away
Acadia, my distant all too forgotten memory
Felicity, my persistent tempting tulip
Adryanna, my silent rose in a field of thorns
She had me at hello...
She had me at hello...

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
