Steel hands reach in and still my beating heart,
The fear embraces the crevices of my brain,
The wall is crumbling, beginning to fall apart,
Opening me up to the pleasure and the pain.
The journey has begun, the ship has set sail,
The ocean is filled with emotions of you,
Waves are splashing, your breath follows their trail,
Passion washes ashore, allowing love to ensue.
Lift me higher with your marionette strings,
My heart is on display,
My body betrays me for the chorus your voice sings,
Inching closer while my mind pushes away.
Be gentle with the words you recite,
The bruises are not easy to hide,
The longing wins, ending this mental fight,
I am held captive, as my heart is opened wide.
