Your song, so haunting
Barefaced emotions it’s flaunting
And though it’s your love I’m wanting
The prospect is too daunting.
Your lyrics, they draw me in
Stir up a storm within
Send my heart into a tailspin
Tempt me sore to give in.
Your dulcet tones seduce
They call for a truce
Provide the perfect excuse
For my heart to let loose.
Your melody tugs at my heartstrings
In that place where heart break stings
From where hope springs
And dreams sprout wings.
Now you’ve got me right where you want me
I’m giving in to your desperate plea
Your promises of things that could be
When you and I finally become We.
This poem was inspired by Sam Smith’s beautifully haunting song, Latch.
