You are mine

Date posted: June 11, 2008

I will drop you in the deepest of oceans 
but like a message in a bottle 
you will swim to my shore. 

I will fly you in the highest of skies 
but like a homing pigeon 
you will land on my window. 

I will let you loose in the busiest of streets 
but like a domestic cat 
you will stray back to my door. 

I will throw you out in the coldest of nights 
but like a christmas gift 
you will adorn my tree. 

I will let you go and walk away 
but like the son I never had 
I will hear you calling my name. 

When you were not looking, 
in your core 
I planted my seed. 

Before you know it, 
I shall grow in your soul 
like a leafy tree of a hundred years. 

I will toss you and turn you 
hurt you and burn you 
chew you and spit you. 

I will hold you and hug you 
kiss you and caress you 
inhale you and crave you. 

Lose yourself in my passion and rage; 
Surrender your weapons; 
Come unarmed for I will invade you. 

I promise to do all that and more; 
Do not resist me; 
You are mine.
