To Swim in the Puddles of your Eyes

Incessant stalking
The romance
Where dwells
A petulance,
A lacking relation
Between that of pitiful me,
To encapsulated you.

Walk with the waters,
I’ll do.
For once I spoke aloud the vows
Before the altar of white.
You were dressed in dashing ivory
To accompany the sun,
Radiance on decadent cheeks.

I wilt
Before you.
On knees, to plead
For the oncoming forgiveness
In your tear-stained sight.

The climb
To see the sky,
To hold
The final hour in my time,
Has made me small,
And you, so large.
