Hold You Prisoner I

There was something mystical about her.
So Magical.
Her aura was so pure.
So pleasing to touch.
She was mine.
My lady in shining armour.
She slayed the demons and dragons that haunted me.
She slayed them even in my nightmares.
She was the one who turned my nightmares
Into Dreams.
I never wanted to let her go.
Her mysticism. Her magic.
She was the enchantress.
And I, I was enchanted.
I will never let her go
And so,
I started building a cage.
A cage around her.
A cage to ground her.
A cage of gold
And diamonds.
Glued together by
Seeds of self-doubt 
That I painstakingly planted 
In her mind.

Tear Drop

Today, it was the wind
That was your messenger
I put my hand
Out the window
And it sieved through
Frolicking around your ring
Then a moment approached
When subtly; very vaguely, it
Squeezed my hand and let go
A gentle reminder really
Of your being there
I closed my eyes
And inhaled your presence
And very gently the wind,
You, caressed my cheek
Whispering sweet nothings 
Into my ears.
For a second forces met
Forces changed
And with the gale
You were gone yet again
Leaving me alone once more
But not bereft
A smile formed on my lips
A slightly sceptic one,
But a smile nonetheless.
A smile that still believed
Believed that you exist.
Now, I raise my face
To the sky
And meet you
Eye to eye,
I open my arms for you
And you rain all over me
Your first drop
Meets my first tear
And that is how
We commune and cry...
