Falling back in Mind...

Heís at it again... alone, and staring at her picture
Lost within the image, just wishing he could kiss her
Speaking to his heart, it begs-
"come take me lover I am yours"
Then dark trepidation overwhelms him,
as he slumps to the floor...

Canít begin to love her,
no, no his heart wouldnít dare
Apprehensive of loveís true intention,
as if he doesnít care
Heís erected himself a barrier yet,
itís filled with many holes
Damaged from the times,
when love made weak his hold

So when to life came
his heartís desires he'd hidden down deep
She threw out her arms invitingly,
expecting heíd make the leap
But he gave †pause... †
once he heard mind's echoed voices leak
"I am love, †with no conditions or reservations " †
It feels right, there's sincererity in the words she speaks...

Maybe just once more...
he hopes on a 'wing and a prayer'
Heart canít be broken again ,
he doesnít have another to spare
Cautiously, and slowly he takes the battered †barrier down
Then gazes into the possibilities, †
of where love is said to be found...
