An entry in The Crocodile Prize
Kina Securities Award for Poetry
My soul was awakened by the sound of your voice,
I responded to your call like I had no choice
and there as I gazed in your deep dark eyes,
I saw the answer to my own heart's lonesome cries...
My love I have waited my whole life for you,
in your arms time and space cease to be true
with you everything feels so right,
as natural as day comes after night.
You're like chocolate to the soul,
of a heart in captivity,
like the sweet taste of freedom,
to one broken; you are liberty....
I love you with a love I do not fully comprehend,
it's a language so pure, only my heart can understand
all you are, everything about you consumes me,
the day I met you, was the day I met my destiny
