Your heart is parralel .

An unseen diamond in a cell.

I lock the diaphragm of love .

With the bitter words

becoming stale.

I reach out like a lost child.

So far away from home.

Hoping the intrusion of my thoughts.

Won't have to be alone.

In this forest I search.

From the latitude of earth .

Across the prime meridian .

The longitude and girth.

As low as the vallies .

As high as the water rapids.

For I refuse to save another.

You are my only captive.

Your exterior lament

is as hard as ivory stone.

You are sheltered from the wind.

That carries along the cold.

I can't pierce through

to reveal my inner love.

Your betraying silence

has fit you like a glove.

The briars are sharp .

There are bushes with thorns.

Shrouds of maple

surviving the storm.

Your eyes are a torch .

A magnet of attraction .

In this forest

my heart is out of traction .

The windmills spin

in the direction of sin.

I follow my heart light

that has begun to dim.

Strange crashes of timber

surround my path.

I pray that my love

will find you at last.

There are voices dark

lingering in emptiness.

This pursuit in this forest.

Is only a dream of happiness.

For what it's worth

my desire has lasted

in the heart of sand

where I lost my captive. .
