Because of You

by G. White

because i knew
you lived in the seductiveness of love's sweet song
masquerading in its many disguises
i knew i couldnt
wouldnt be
some moments in your life

because i knew
i didnt
want to be left with misty thoughts
of not being able to kiss your day
when you rose
from sweet  loves dream
i chose not to be
some moments in your life

because i knew
you were afraid my love would capture
all of who you are
and let you know love's true story
that i was the one
above mediocrity
you could not dare
succumb to faith
but chose fear

i chose to love you
within the conclaves of my fantasies
cause there i knew, like you
i could be safe
be deliriously drunk
in my madness for you
and give into mushrooming desires
tangled in the web of my glorious cries
as i released into a helpless rapture
that floated me on a soft carpet ride
of moments with you!
