the native tongue can never defeat the power of two whom can dance to the same beat of their hearts.
the words that flow from my soul
to my veins and out through my fingertips,
to most are obstructed by either confusion, misunderstanding
or whatever other baggage they carry that won't let my abstract thoughts
penetrate their unfortunate heavy epicenter.
never have my expressions been powerful enough to break them,
i met you, spent half a day with you, and you left,
that was it, gone, just like that,
1,000's of miles away.
but however, whatever ill-fated scenario that was,
we speak to each others soul, lover we don't even have the same native tongue,
yet you understand my core better than any other that has ever entered my leading light.
i'm taken back to a child-like state,
i feel scared, forlorn.
i'm afraid just like an absent father,
you will provide me with certainty that it will happen.
sweetheart, i hate to break this to you but,
age doesn't pause for life, love or the desire to pursue you
as scary as it may be, if what is spoken to me is true
that dive, as deep, as dark as it may be, know i am writing to you from the depths.
i vow, i won't let you drown. please, babe, dive in,
my skin is only withering without you.
