(A Collaboration with Cherry Rose)

This love, a tug of war within my soul
Speaks out timelessly – unconstrained
As I listen to the whispers in the night
Coming alive, with a accessible insight

I am the name you say, in silent whispers
Keeping me hidden, within these shadows
My heart and soul – exposed to extension
As there be no secrets, from your mind’s eye

The struggle within my spirit, without end
Timelessly lured into you, with each hello
My angel of darkness, the light of my life
You take me on a journey, to distant lands

Mystified with the power that you possess
Longing to feel that sweet caress upon me
Falling eternally into the warmth of arms
Captured in my mind’s eye, before the fall

I arise from the dust, in a reborn silhouette
Holding onto every word, inside my heart
I thrive to hear your soft laugh, beside me
Bestowing unto you, all that resides in core

Who is this foreigner, that touches my heart
Stripping away, all I dare hide in shadows
Yet, knows all my secrets and my regrets
Whispered into the soul, forever treasured

As I am the dark secret, that remains unseen
Waiting throughout the night, until sunrises
Searching for a moment in time, to re-emerge
Before all is lost, never to return – in the light

Memories, are now locked profoundly in heart
Veiled ceaselessly, awaiting for the sun anew
Bringing forth faith, in the wisdom of knowing
What is destined, will become before set eyes
