Confusing lust and love can ruin you if you let it. In this poem, I try and touch upon the moment I saw the truth between me and a lover. Like most things in life, nature has the perfect simile for this moment.
Waves I hear my name claw out of your mouth A soft raw A silenced growl And in this moment I am yours. With your guard down, Your eyes on me. You're amazed now; I see your vulnerability. With me full of you I know that you're scared. Unsure of what's to come And who'll be there, But I am not the one you want by your side. Just like waves kissing the shore; I'm only here for a while.
