heart hunger


what do i do with the hunger
the need to love and be loved
when i fear the consequences
of allowing the love seed to take root
in the fertile garden of my heart
for my mind has learned the dark lesson
i have come to know in truth
that love and adoration
are not always meant to last forever
fear and pride wait patiently
to conquer and destroy

i do not need just another woman
i seek a glimpse of eternity
burning unafraid in her eyes
a woman to brand my heart with her promise
to take my hand and leap fearless
across the river of time and tomorrow
a woman who seeks as i do
the burning, searing passion of destiny
the peace, the surrender of forever
how i long to read her words, hear her voice
drown helpless in her gaze and know
you are my forever girl
