Ready to Hang

When I saw his face I was transported to a place of happiness
When I heard his voice it filtered through me
Like blood flowing through my veins
I looked into his eyes and I was whole again
Forget my head, I cannot reason My heart is in my head;
I have given it to him I have nothing else to offer anyone else
I love him I have never loved like this before
I am tired of fighting battles within
Tired of making excuses for my unhappiness
Tired of solving math’s
I am like a river that has flowed into his ocean
Connected to his soul we are inseparable
Lost without him like the air that I breathe
He fills me up in ways only he can
I have zipped my foul tongue and swept away pessimism
I have blocked my ears that which threatens to tear us down
I am taking charge of my own bliss
Letting go
I have given myself to him

A Place.... a time....a moment in time.....and when I am with him .... I am in my Haven..... My Art.... My Heart..... My Haven.....
