You’ve seen my type before
But I implore you to be kind
For I am delicate of mind
And weaker than I show.
You think you know my style
But let us trial another way
So that the energy might stay
And feel our words were worth the time.
Seeds of love
Scattered on fertile soil
Bound to flourish; weaving deep roots
As hearts converge as one
Relentlessly reaching for the sun.
Come the shade
When shadows cloud the soul
Only the strongest prevail and grow
Prospering without a sky of blue
Seeds of a love so true.
I watch you flutter freely and I smile
Enchanted by your delicate design
The madness of your wings;
The peril that it brings
To drip your colours on the canvas of our eyes.
They watch your flight intently and advance
Impatient whispers willing you to rest
The catcher’s greedy stares
Grow narrow with their cares;
A net swoops down -
Your new protector claims the crown.
You watch your dreams descending and you weep
Cursing every colour on display
But none shall hear your voice
On condition of your choice
To fade inside a jar the catcher labels ‘mine’.
Dancing distances reveal a closer bond
Between the stars and truth
Fiery freedom rears its head and screams;
In silence we listen.
