How Beautifully You Destroy Me

Poetry By: Wayward Troubadour

In my short life, I have found no force that can simultaneously cause so much joy and soy much pain as Love.

It was an instant of forever

So wonderful and so calm

And so unbelievably simple

A dollop of Heaven's balm

The sincerest touch

And a stolen breath

So fearful of life

But so afraid of death

And how beautifully I destroyed you,

How beautifully you cried,

How beautifully you whispered my name

Just after the sunrise

You went to sleep afraid

Afraid that I'd be gone

But I promised you always

To be on the other side of dawn

So dark but for moonbeams

So alive you thought you'd died,

And trembling softly

Your heart shaking inside

So infected with wonder

And so foolishly amused

And so awfully in love

And so willingly confused

A gentle touch

And holding so tight

Your flower-petal lips

So soft and light

And how beautifully you destroyed me,

As we shared a soul

And how beautifully we break

To become so beautifully whole
