Cast Away In Paradise

Taking snapshots of existence
Savoring these moments that make it all worthwhile
Living to find myself accomplished
Somewhere between destiny and vanity like a vehicle

Furnishing my life
For the creature comforts of luxury and romance
Leisure lover longings looming
Every moment with her foreshadows the next

Making plans for the purpose of a heartbeat
I make my bed in the hopes of euphoria
Yet beyond sensational ideals of fantasy
I wait between an obligation to routine
To reap the harvest of all its for

Investing time in a memory on the fringe
My room is like an island and Im cast away in paradise
Because she is like a meadow in the dungeon
As I find freedom in an isolated garden
Where a rose blooms for my eyes only

And Im caught up in the fragrance of her natural beauty
With nails like thorns tearing into the flesh
She leaves her marks on my body
Laying claim to it like scars in the art of seduction

I am a man chiseled out of love
She is like a calm in the eye of the war
