Your smile is the trigger
For the infantile excitement that erupts from my soul.
Your voice collaborates with my mind
To mimic what happens when a friend of yesteryear
Returns to your presence this day.
As I gaze into your eyes,
I see memories long forgotten
Rising to the surface like rain water from concrete.
I've forgotten what this feels like.
This evaporation elevating my emotions
Until my heart condenses the condition into clouds.
Thus, I walk on cloud nine,
Floating high above reality
As if the cloud isn't becoming too heavy...
Your pains cause precipitation
And I crash back into mourning.
Tears streaming from high hopes
Because I am ready,
But alas... you are not...
So I've fallen again
For an angel masked in misery.
You can't even see that you're worthy.
You deserve to be loved unconditionally.
Why do you dangle me on a string?
I am what you need-
An offering from His Majesty.
Why restrain me?
Open your heart so that I may flood into you.
Pour every ounce of cloud nine into your mind,
So that you may understand I have plans for you.
I will love you like the first gasp of air after drowning.
You've been a cloud with lightning since the beginning,
But if you'd let my cumulus into your storm,
You'd see how easy I'd lift that burden from your shoulders.
I am here for you.
Release your pain unto me,
So that after the rain,
You can see the sun,
And we can experience cloud nine together…
I want you.
