Love means you’ll need convincing
keep your feet firmly planted
there in the sensitive garden.
At some point you’ll change
you’ll either give or take instructions
and just when you think you’re settled
you’ll be shown that there in the corner
is your biggest secret
that has yet to be revealed.
Eventually you’ll be convinced
to reveal that precious secret of yours.
Just agree, that someday
you’ll remove that thorn laden bush
the one thing that has kept you
so heavily guarded
keeping you from falling in love.
Be it at the beginning or at the end,
you’ll feel all accomplished
all weighted down in your love.
This side of you we haven’t seen before
mostly beautiful all calm and satisfied
over there in your own solitude
you have fail to notice
that one by one
your senses are becoming useless.
Maybe by instinct you’ll come back
the transitional lover,
all fluent in your new language
with magical charms out on display
showing us everything you’ve learned.
Envious are the eyes
that still crave you.
just in case you doubt change
trust that if you fall in love,
expect to read the mind of others
all while balancing a bowl of pearls.
This life with all the cycles
can quickly add up and fade
before you ask the others
why they have up and gone
make sure your eyes are wide open.
Ask for a guideline or a set of rules
learn why things happen,
and why they must change.
Make sure you’ re properly prepared
to be all loved and cherished.
Deny that piece inside
that insists on mirrors,
can simply look inside and be content,
with this, your forever person
long before you fall in love.
