Once Upon a Time

Speaking to my soul

Your heart reaches for mine
Through distance and memories
Yurning always in time
Eyes locked in a stare
That seems to erase all matter
No person can compare
From this day after
Love songs and poetry
Every cliche you can imagine
Makes me think of you, want you
How could I let this happen
Again caught in a web
Of pretty words and attraction
Deeply in your heart lies stories untold
Of hurt, deception and realities unfold
What’s behind that smile
That makes my heart skip two beats
What’s pulsing through your head when our lips don’t speak
All I see is the halo floating peacefully at your crown
An angel with sincerity
Floating gracefully around
Speaking to your soul
My heart reaches for yours
How can I expect to not ever
Want more
