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.
